Romance by Niobia Bryant


AN OFFER FROM MR. WRONG | July 28, 2022

Series: Cress Brothers #3

A chef turned secret heir cooks up a fake—and deliciously tempting—relationship in bestselling author Niobia Bryant’s delectable Cress Brothers novel.

Will a fake relationship help a reluctant heir claim his birthright?

As the recently discovered secret heir to the Cress Dynasty, chef Lincoln Cress isn’t exactly fitting in with his new family. A girlfriend for hire would help, and private investigator Bobbie Barnett, who discovered his Cress connection, fits the bill. It’s a simple deal that has nothing to do with her wavy hair, full lips or how she incites his wickedest appetites. Now Lincoln’s risking everything—including the Cress family’s reputation—on a proposal that has nothing to do with business…and everything to do with pleasure.

From Harlequin Desire: A luxurious world of bold encounters and sizzling chemistry.
