Book Five in the Awakening Desires series.
The last thing Jackson Connors wants is a housekeeper. He likes his life just as it is—solitary and uncomplicated.
Emerald Jewel is a New York designer with a stalker on her trail. She needs a place to hide out and Jackson’s farm is the perfect solution to her problem. The last thing she wants is to be attracted to her sexy new boss.
Neither of them is prepared for the explosion of passion that flares between them. They try to resist, but the desire will not be denied. Jackson knows Emerald’s life is in New York and his is on the farm. He’ll eventually have to let her go, but he’s not about to let her face this threat on her own.
But the stalker is getting closer to finding Emerald and will stop at nothing to possess her. As the threat around her escalates, she must face leaving Jackson to draw the danger away from the man she’s coming to love.

“Emerald, I’d like you to meet my brother, Jackson Connors. It’s him you’ll be working for.”
She’d just known that this wouldn’t be easy. Still, she needed this job worse than she’d ever needed anything in her life. She could bury her burgeoning desire for her new boss. Besides which, she wouldn’t be here long enough to really get involved with the man. His life was here and hers was back in New York. She was just tired, and like any woman, she could appreciate a final male specimen. It didn’t mean anything.
“Pleased to meet you, Mr. Connors.” She held out her hand and his large, tanned one quickly swallowed it up.
“Might as well call me Jackson since you’re going to be living with me.
