Cup of Sugar by Karla DoyleYes, Conn was friendly, sweet and easy to be around. And hotness—he owned that category. She’d been smart to keep her distance the past eight months. Last night had been a slip in judgment—a world-rocking, toe-curling slip—but not the beginning of something.

Conn was interested in her, but judging from the array of female visitors to his house, he was interested in a lot of women. He didn’t even appear to have a type. Nia hadn’t seen any sign of a steady girlfriend since she moved in. She had no problem with Conn’s preference for variety, but she couldn’t stomach being part of his buffet.

Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…

For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.
