Aria Saint-James has planned the perfect getaway: sweatpants, takeout and two weeks alone with her sister and nephew. Nowhere on that list is wearing a low-cut dress and uncomfortable heels to attend a wedding where she knows neither the bride nor the groom. Toss in her nemesis, Brody Carmichael, and her road trip to Arizona is officially a bust.

But at least there is champagne.

She blames the bubbly for falling into bed with Brody that night. Enemy or no, the billionaire is irresistible in a tux. But after their one-night tryst, Aria has no choice but to cut her vacation short, returning home to escape his devilish smile, vowing never to see Brody again.

Except Aria gets a surprise a few weeks later—she’s pregnant. When he learns that she’s carrying his child, Brody offers Aria the chance of a lifetime. The catch? She has to live under his roof until the baby is born.

Either they’ll kill each other in nine months. Or discover love buried beneath their hate.

With another leg of an epic road trip planned for the Cadillac, Aria Saint-James heads to her sister’s home in Arizona. A long-awaited vacation was just the ticket that Aria needs to reconnect with her twin – Clara. The sisters have always been connected on a level that others can’t quite understand. So – it is no wonder that Aria is as vested in what happens in Clara’s life as her own. What Aria didn’t plan on was a roadblock in her plans.


Brody is the thorn in Aria’s side that just won’t go away. As Clara’s boss, Brody has managed to provide Aria’s sister with a life that any single mother would be proud of. In spite of being generous to Clara, Brody rubs Aria the wrong way. Now – the arrogant businessman has managed to be a part of the vacation that Aria planned with her sister. To add insult to injury, Aria finds herself stepping into a role that Clara generally performs as part of her duties as an assistant.


Nothing could have prepared Aria for the ramifications of stepping into Brody’s world. An explosion unlike anything Aria expected comes barreling into her peaceful existence. Be careful what you wish for because you might find that unexpected events come with those wishes. One night… indulgence….now Aria finds herself reeling from her trip to Arizona.


Can I start by telling you how much I loved Forsaken Trail? The road trip of a lifetime has been captured throughout this series. Each stop just as exciting as the next. Aria’s leg of the journey was unexpected, but full of the elements that pull you into the story of this tainted heart. Brody…..well….talk about a surprising morsel wrapped up in a three piece suit!! The dynamic between Brody and Aria is outstanding!!


The Runaway series has taken a road trip and turned it into an epic life quest. Aria’s story was unexpected and just the right touch for this leg of the journey!! I can’t wait to uncover what is in store for Clara!! Make sure you check out this wonderful series and all it has to offer when feeding your soul!






Aria gave me a small smile, but as we took another step, it changed. Twisted. The fire in her gaze sparked even brighter. The mischievous woman whose words cut like a Samurai sword was ready for the show.

Her hand let go of my arm to slide down the sleeve of my tux jacket. Aria laced her fingers with mine as her other hand snaked up my chest. She inched so close that her scent, floral and sweet, filled my nose.

That intoxicating smell scrambled my brain and I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the curls in her shiny hair. I wanted to twist them around my fingers, then take the strands in my fist and—

What. The. Fuck.

This was Aria. A woman who openly admitted she hated me the way I hated her. An enemy. My assistant’s sister.

There’d be no fisting of her hair. No licking of her lips. No nibbling of her ears.
