Joy moved across the country to take a job as the secretary to the mayor of Troping. The only problem is, the more time she spends with Mayor North, the more time she doesn’t want to spend away from him. Things between them could never work and she needs to concentrate on saving money. But one night when the power goes out, a plan is hatched and she agrees to so much more.

When North proposes a marriage of convenience, Joy thinks he’s lost his mind. Maybe he has, but how else is he supposed to convince the woman he loves to marry him? She thinks he wants the single women in town to stop chasing after him, but in reality he only wants one woman’s attention.

Warning: Marriage of convenience with a side of office romance is the perfect combination for a winter read. Come with us to Troping where you’ll find all the best stories!

Chapter One


I watch the snow fall on the town from my office in City Hall. My desk gives me the perfect view of the main strip of Troping. When I first moved here, I wasn’t sure how I’d take to things. I grew up in a small town in Alabama, so I knew moving to another small town wouldn’t be much of an issue. More so since I didn’t grow up in it. That's what I wanted: to escape and start anew.

Some people might love growing up and living in the same town their whole life, but when you’re the nerdy girl that got picked on through high school, not so much. Still, I loved the idea of a small town, so when I saw Troping, Colorado had a job opening for a personal assistant, I jumped at the opportunity.

Never in a million years did I think I’d get the job. It kind of just fell in my lap one day. Or more specifically fell in my email inbox. I think it might have to do with that LinkedIn page I made randomly one day. I didn’t put much effort into it and actually forgot about it. There wasn’t a lot to add since I only have an associate’s degree of general studies, which I got online.

During the Skype interview, I almost fell out of my seat when I saw Mayor North for the first time. They clearly make men a whole lot sexier in Colorado. We chatted about everything and nothing, but he didn’t really ask me much about my skill set. By the time the interview was done, he hired me on the spot. I was shocked.

Then the panic set in. I couldn’t just move from Alabama to Colorado—or so I thought. I was still living with my parents, and I had no idea where to live once I got to Troping. I was clueless on how to get there, but somehow North sensed my panic when he told me I’d gotten the job. Right away, he started checking off all the boxes that I had going in my head. He reassured me I’d have a place to live when I got here and that everything would be taken care of. North has always been true to his word. That’s one of the first things I learned about him.

Since I lived with my parents, I didn’t have much stuff. I worked as a receptionist for a dentist in my old town and saved up enough to buy a car the year before so I packed it with all my things and made the drive.

That was six months ago.

I’d gone from a small town that lived and breathed football to a small town that lives and breathes Christmas. This place is lit up like a Christmas tree year-round, and I kind of love it. Plus, the snow. I’d never seen it until I moved here, and even now, it can still distract me. Right now, I should be going over emails and some rezoning thing, but I’m looking through the window and watching the thick snowflakes fall.

The front door swings open, pulling my attention away from the snow to greet whoever has entered City Hall. Which is rather small. At the moment, the only people in the building are Mayor North and me. It’s typically that way.

“Good afternoon.” I give Donna a smile before pushing my glasses up my nose.

She grew up in Troping but only came back to town recently after passing the bar and becoming a lawyer. So I only met her a month ago even though she knows everyone. We don’t really need a lawyer around here, but maybe one wouldn’t be the worst idea. I just think she might get bored. Unless she gets her hooks into Mayor North, which I think has been her plan since she got back to town. She’ll have to get in line since most of the single women in town want North. The way he shows zero interest makes me think he might be asexual.
