Desire by Design by Paula Altenburg is stealing hearts left and right. Her first contemporary with Entangled Bliss (she also writes a fantastic urban fantasy series called The Demon Outlaws!), DbD is sweet, sassy, and so much fun.
Paula and I had a blast working on this one together, and I'm so happy to see it getting such a great reception!
He stole her job, and now she’s stealing his heart.
Eve Doucette finally almost has it all. She’s free from her mistake of an ex-husband and just landed her dream job: project manager for a new City Hall and drafter of the final design. That is, until a handsome architect sweeps into town to commandeer her blueprints.
Famous architect Matt Brison is unsatisfied with his mundane life in Toronto. So when the mayor of Halifax asks him to spearhead his City Hall project, Matt jumps at the opportunity. There’s just one problem: the feisty and beautiful project lead, Eve, who isn’t exactly thrilled about her new “coworker” hijacking her design.
But when the sparks begin to fly, they both find themselves falling for the colleague they shouldn’t want. And before they know it, their already shaky foundation might come crumbling down…
