Sometimes you have to break the rules to right a wrong.

Janet Cardona is usually a by-the-book good girlbut when Matt Carrington won't give her cat back, she sees red. Rules mean nothing when there's an animal to be saved. So when she's caught in a burglary and blackmailed for it, she finds she can't refuse. Matt only needs her to pretend to be his wife for a day or two so that he can run a scam he's involved in. But once the pretense gets going, he begins to yearn for the real thing. Now Janet has to decide if she can let herself fall for a con man.

Recipes for Crab Open-faced Sandwiches and Basic Asian Soup included.

Purchase from Amazon.

EXCERPT:
But Mavis didn't seem to notice her hesitant manner. She went on as though she accepted everything she saw and heard as being perfectly normal. "I'm so sorry the children aren't with you," she said warmly. "Tell me all about them."
"The children?" Janet turned and gazed blankly at Matt. It was beginning to dawn on her just how unprepared for this little game she was.
"The children, darling," he said with a grin that looked much too relaxed to her. "We have two of them, remember?"
He turned to Mavis. "You're going to have to forgive Vanessa. She's like this all the time when she travels." He wiped his mouth with his napkin and glanced sideways at Janet. "Even under the best of circumstances she's a little scatterbrained." His grin was wide and forgiving. "But we love her for it."
Janet's mouth was open. She was going to kill him for that one!
The flicker of devilment in his eyes said he knew how his patronizing was infuriating her, but that didn't stop him. He shook his head with mock melancholy as he gazed at her.
"Look at her. After she travels, she goes into some sort of a time warp. She can hardly remember her name ..."
"I can remember yours," she said sweetly, pretending to smile, but glaring at him from beneath lowered lashes. "‘Mud,' wasn't it?"

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"
