Fowler sisters volume 1.
Pub. Date:
New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy begins a sexy contemporary romance series that introduces three sisters born to wealth, raised to succeed, ready to love, and destined to make waves. I've moved through life doing what's expected of me. I'm the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family's business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I. Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it's for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary--perhaps even more so. He's also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I've never felt before. One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I'm hooked. Ryder's like a powerful drug, and I'm an addict who doesn't want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren't pure, and I believe him. For once, I don't care. I'm willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul. My everything. Praise for Owning Violet " Owning Violet owned me from the first page to the last. Ryder and Violet's chemistry is off the charts! Read it, own it, love it!" -- New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans "Scorching hot romance filled with suspense, lies, secrets, and explosive heat. Ryder is pure yummiest, a perfect mix of a dominant dirty-talking alpha and a sweet, protective broken bad boy." --The Rock Stars of Romance "There's just something dark and edgy, yet totally irresistible about this novel. I couldn't put it down! . . . It's a romance that offers real emotional development and a steamy relationship that will leave you begging for more." --Peace Love Books " Owning Violet is exquisitely written. It's 400 pages of scorching hotness that just sizzles with desire. . . . Monica Murphy is an author to watch out for." --Lady A, Literature Junkie Extraordinaire "Monica Murphy has a new hit series on her hands!" --Swoon Worthy Books

display_description"Violet Fowler is the good sister. Responsible, faithful, she's done everything she's supposed to and still gets hurt in the end. Just when she thought her long-term boyfriend, Zachary, would pop the question, he instead breaks the news that he's considering a job transfer within the family company--in London. Ryder McKay hates Zachary Lawrence and he wants his girlfriend, and his job. So when he catches word that Violet and Zachary's relationship is on the rocks, he sees a golden opportunity. And once Ryder sets his sights on something, he gets what he wants. Determined to make Violet his own, he moves in when he knows she's most vulnerable--hurt and missing Zachary. Despite everyone's warnings, Violet soon finds herself embroiled in a passionate, secret affair with the one man she least expected. And she surprises Ryder, as well, as he starts to feel something real for a woman for the first time in his life. The only problem is that their relationship is based on a scam and once Violet discovers Ryder's dirty secrets, she'll be forced to make a choice. Trust him and her feelings, or give up on love once and for all"--Provided by publisher.
