The Right Kind of Wrong by Emily Wood Rags and
Riches Series Book 3
Maybe only someone who's been behind bars can
understand how to set her free.
Fresh out of jail, Jamie Pierce is
desperate to change his ways and become a better person. He wants to earn
enough money to get out of London for good and live a quiet life somewhere in
the country. But then he meets Harriet Jones, a beautiful young fashion
designer who is plagued by self-doubt, and suddenly leaving doesn't seem so
Harriet has spent years trying to win her
father's affection, but time and time again she's been left feeling that she
just isn't good enough. When she starts to fall for her rough-around-the-edges
neighbor, she knows her father would never approve.
It was only meant to be a fling, but maybe
the person who seems so wrong for her could be just the kind of person she
needs. Can Jamie help Harriet learn to believe in herself, or will she remain
trapped in her own prison of self-doubt?

"I guess that's a hint for me to
go." Jamie sighed. "Shame, I was enjoying myself."
He hopped off the stool, and despite the
rising panic about her work, Harriet felt a warm glow at his words.
"Geez, don't sound so surprised. Why
wouldn't I be enjoying myself in the company of a beautiful woman?" Jamie
stared down at her with that burning, intense gaze of his.
Harriet squirmed. Years of being criticized
had made her unable to take a compliment. "I'm not beautiful."
She broke her gaze away from his, and
looked back at her work. Work was what she knew, what she understood, not
compliments and looks of strange, gorgeous men whom she had invited into her
home with no real idea why.
She felt his fingers under her chin,
lifting her face so that she had to look back up at him. Even though she
resisted slightly, his fingers were firm.
"You are the most beautiful woman I've
ever met," Jamie told her, and he looked so serious.
Harriet wanted to believe it. But she knew
she wasn't beautiful.
"Can I kiss you again?" There was
a fleeting moment of indecision in his eyes, like maybe he shouldn't, but all
Harriet wanted was for him to kiss her again."Yes." Her voice was
trembling. There were so many reasons why she should have said no. But she
wanted this. She wanted Jamie.
His eyes fixed on hers until his soft lips
found hers. Harriet savored his gentle kiss this time, marveling at his skill
to ignite a passion within her that she wasn't even sure she had. When he
pulled away, Harriet was left breathless.
"You seem nervous," Jamie said,
taking her hand, which was physically shaking.
"I…I haven't touched a man since my
husband and I separated," Harriet admitted.
Jamie's eyebrows shot up in surprise.
"You seem too young to have been married already."
"Yes, well, it didn't work out,"
Harriet said bitterly. She looked away, trying to push down the emotions that threatened
to resurface—rejection, abandonment, the feeling of never being good enough.
But she was good at controlling the pain by now; she'd been doing it ever since
she was a child.
"I'm sorry." The fire between
them was in danger of fizzling out as they stood there awkwardly, but then
Jamie kissed her hand. "Anybody would be a fool to leave you."
Jamie pulled her closer and started kissing
her again. He tasted of beer, and Harriet hated the taste usually, but like
with everything else, he made the wrong seem so right, and she loved it.
She kissed him like she couldn't get
enough. Boldly, Harriet raised her hands up to cup his face, the beginnings of
stubble feeling grainy against her palms. She was more turned on than she could
ever remember. Harriet pulled away, suddenly nervous. It wasn't like her to do
things like this, and it scared her just how much she wanted it.
"It's okay, we don't have to take this
any further. We don't really know each other," Jamie said a little
Harriet tried to hide her disappointment,
but she knew he was right, and she wasn't the kind of girl to be this forward.
"But I'm up for it if you are."
Jamie's voice was more serious, and his words sent waves of desire through her
Given her tendency to overthink things into
inaction, she decided to let her body take over. There were a hundred reasons
why she shouldn't do this, but she was going to go with the one reason she
should—she wanted to.
A choice between two men? If only it were that simple.
Melissa Morgan seems to have it all…her modeling career is taking
off and she's engaged to one of the most eligible bachelors in London. But when
she finds Jonathan cheating on her again, Melissa finds solace in the arms of
Riley, a sexy bar owner trying to recover from the heartbreak of his last
relationship. Melissa shouldn't even want Riley, but she can't seem to stay
away, especially when she finds in him everything that's missing in her
relationship with Jonathan.
Melissa knows she has to make a hard choice, and when it comes to
choosing between the life she's always wanted and the man she's falling in love
with, she might find out that she can't have the best of both worlds.
Can mixing business and pleasure ever result in a happy ending?
When sexy, rich Lawrence Russo asks Mia to come and work for him
in Italy for two weeks, she jumps at the chance. After all, it beats pole
dancing, and the salary he offers her is practically obscene.
A relationship quickly begins to develop between the two, but Mia
can't help but wonder if Lawrence's feelings for her are genuine or if he feels
he's just paying for a service.
Even if their relationship is strong enough to survive her
insecurities, what will happen when somebody from her past shows up and
threatens to reveal her deepest, darkest secret?

I have always believed that the best stories are the ones that you
can't put down, the ones that transport you to a different place and make you
believe in the characters. This is exactly why I write… I have always loved the
escapism that reading and writing provides, and there is nothing more exciting
than imagining your own set of characters, and then letting them practically
write the story for you. Writing has always been a dream of mine, and I'm lucky
to have the kind of people around me that have always nurtured and encouraged
I live a cozy little life in Wales, and when I'm not writing I'm taking care of my young family, studing for a degree in Classical Studies, and training to become a nail technician. I love traveling to new places, meeting new people, and experiencing new things......it's all great inspiration for my books!
