My name is JADE BALLARD, and this is the story of how a freak accident with a cookie changed the life of a semi-reformed people-pleaser (that’s me!).

After a disastrous marital near-miss Jade Ballard retreats to San Antonio, cutting herself off from the world in general and more specifically her family’s country club lifestyle, which she no longer wants any part of. She takes comfort in food and the safety of an internet love affair.

Rowdy Yates is a semi-reformed womanizer who’s leery of long-term entanglements. Until Jade, he never seriously considered anything beyond a “Wife-For-A-Night.”

After months of flirting on the internet the couple meets, only to discover they already know one another. Rowdy has always mistaken Jade’s shy reserved nature for snobbishness, and Jade has always viewed the woman-loving Rowdy as a Redneck Casanova. But the seven months they spent getting to know one another formed an attraction neither can fight.


Rowdy unstrapped his bass guitar and set it aside, taking a minute to collect himself. He still couldn’t orient the two sides of Jade he’d been presented with. His saucy Skyebaby…and Miss Snooty Pants. He shook his head and slowly crossed the floor to where Jade stood, narrowly avoiding a collision with a couple that spun past to a Hank Junior song.

To his further shock, Jade wrapped her arms around his waist and leaned in close. He stared down at her and kept his own at his sides, wondering what in the hell was going on. Wondering if she’d had some amazing change of heart, or hit her head, or lost her mind or something.

“I need your help,” she shouted over the music.

Or something. “My help? You left me standing on the Riverwalk. You didn’t even bother to hang around for any sort of explanation or to talk, you just left. And now you want my help?” he snapped.

She hung her head and rested it against his chest, as Hank Junior segued into Tim McGraw. A slow song. And they were drawing stares. He pulled her a little further onto the dance floor and took one of her hands in his, wrapping the other around her waist.

She raised her head and frowned up at him in obvious confusion.

“We can’t just stand on the dance floor yakkin’ all night,” he growled over the music.

“Oh,” she mouthed, her eyes glued to his face.


“My mom is here.”

He didn’t miss the panic in her eyes but continued to goad her. “What’s it to me?”

“She…I’m sorry, Robbie! I’m sorry I left you there like that, but I need your help,” she pleaded. “Five minutes, that’s all I’m asking.”

He danced her into a corner and spun her out, tightening his grip as she stumbled a bit. Five minutes, huh? Did he dare? And why should he? What type of mom did Miss Snooty Pants have that could send her into such a panic. “What do I have to do?”

“Pretend to be my fiancée. She thinks we’re engaged and she wants to meet you. Five minutes, I swear. That’s it…and…and I’ll never bother you again.”

Amie Stuart is the last of a dying breed, a native Texan, and still makes her home there, where cowboys and music (her other two loves) abound. Growing up, she wanted to be a lawyer and a psychologist. No doubt the shrinks would have a field day with her head, but she’s seen the error of her ways and considers all those other jobs ‘research’ for the writing gig.

She’s a multiple contest finalist as well as a trained contest judge and is affectionately known as The Terminator by her critique partners. She’s written as CELIA STUART for Black Lace Books, & Liquid Silver Books, and as AMIE STUART for Kensington Aphrodisia, she has a short story (PEACHES ‘N CREAM) in Zane’s CARMEL FLAVA 2, and launched Cobblestone Press’s new short erotica line, Wicked.
