Frenemies-To-Lovers Romance


She’s strictly business. He likes to play around. When she starts her new job, will his flirtation leave her exasperated… or intrigued?


Kathryn Reilly’s business is cashing in on the 1998 tech boom. When her executive client turns out to be the same sexy rogue who nearly seduced her at a Renaissance Faire, she vows to not let the near one-night stand interfere with the contract her firm needs.


CEO Ian Somerland isn’t used to the word no in business or pleasure. Kathryn’s immunity to his charm strikes a chord in him that hasn’t been played in years and he’s determined to win her to his bed. And he never loses.


Kathryn does her best to keep their relationship all work and no play, but her business smarts are no match for his seductive skills and she's fighting a losing battle to stay in the boardroom and out of the bedroom.


Can this playboy convince her that bending the rules might lead to an affair to remember? Or will she turn the tables and beat him at his own game?


Faire’s Fair is a slow-burn, frenemies-to-lovers, billionaire romance. Free to borrow for Kindle Unlimited subscribers.


Grace Grahme lives in San Antonio and balances (not always successfully) writing, a career, a family, and a menagerie of dogs, cats, and backyard chickens. She's an avid coffee consumer and adult beverage fan and loves catching up with friends on Marco Polo. She avoids cleaning, cardio, and carbs—unless it's an emergency. She carves out writing time by starting her day at the gym at 5:15am, which unfortunately means she's in bed earlier than she'd like.
