MISADVENTURES WITH A TIME TRAVELER by Angel Payne.
Workaholic Allie Fine isn’t thrilled about a surprise birthday trip to the French countryside, where there’s nothing to do but drink wine and tour old castles. But boredom takes a hike when a sexy period actor shows up to be her special between-the-sheets gift.
Maximillian De Leon, the towering god with eyes of gold and pecs of steel, is the most incredible lover she’s ever had. But Allie wakes with confusion when her French lover tells her he’s actually Prince Maximillian, and he hasn’t seen the light of day since 1789.
Crazy or not, Max De Leon is the hottest man Allie’s ever met—and the perfect piece on her arm to impress the corporate brass and take her career to the next level. So what if he keeps claiming he has to marry her to break a centuries-old curse in order to stay alive. He’ll get over that soon enough…right?
* Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance. *
This is a short story, it’s from a collection of authors, so none are connected.
Max is living on borrowed time.
Maximillian was escaping the French Revolution (he had already seen his parents killed) with the help of his loyal servants. But Max wasn’t expecting to shoved into a wardrobe, and the woman he thought of as a second mother, to start muttering strange words and lights to come from her hands……
He’s been thrown forward in time. His mission is to find the angel he saw in a vision. He needs to find her. But there’s a catch, he has to get this woman to fall in love with him, and she has to announce it in front of witnesses.
Allie loves fashion, it’s her career, it’s her life, and nothing is more important. So why would her friends send her to France. Nothing to do but drink wine and visit cold and damp castles.
Allie couldn’t care less, she just wants to go home.
Max and Allie meet and it’s practically lust at first sight.
We know Maximillian has to win Allie over, and the frustration he faces when all she wants is his body, and he wants to give her his heart.
Will he get Allie to publicly declare her love for him? What happens if she doesn’t?
And does Allie believe Max?
