When a sugar-mama arrangement throws together two people who couldn't be more different, they soon discover how powerfully opposites attract in this charming new romance by Katie Shepard.
MBA student Caroline Sedlacek realizes that her personal balance sheet is a little lopsided. On the asset side, she’s got her NCAA trophy in women’s tennis, her great education...and the two million dollars she just inherited. There's still something missing, though: everything else outside of her very limited schedule—which includes pretty much all life experiences that cannot be gained on the tennis court or in the classroom. But "everything else" has never come easily for her.
In the ten years since he left art school as a vaunted prodigy, Adrian Landry has won shows and major prizes—and done his best to shed his reputation as a pretty man who makes pretty paintings. Though currently sleeping off a bad breakup on his college roommate’s couch, Adrian knows he has the chance to get his life back on track—he just needs the money to find a new gallery.
When Adrian’s roommate lists him on a thinly veiled escort site, he finds Caroline, but she is not the patron he expected. She’s way too young, way too pretty, and completely uninterested in having sex with him. Instead, they’re both going to get exactly what they need: a little culture on her side, and a lot of cash on his. Aside from their sugar-baby arrangement, they’ve got nothing in common. But as they careen from the symphony to the Haymarket, they learn that what they want and what they need might be two very different things.
