GOOD GIRL, a standalone contemporary romance in the House of Payne World by Stacy Gail, is available now!
About Good Girl:
“I’m what you’d call a good girl.”
Though “boring girl” might be more accurate, as far as Serena Daniels is concerned. Working as a pediatric nurse, she’s not exactly knee-deep in eligible bachelors, and the most exciting thing she’s done lately is mix her colors with her whites. The last time she asked a man out, he stood her up, then didn’t bother to contact her for weeks. Clearly, she isn’t the only one who thinks she’s boring.
“Just how bad could this good girl get?”
Life is a string of crazy messes and brilliant moments for real estate mogul Lorenzo Salvatore, and he never knows which one he’s going to get next. On the one hand, he’s got a traumatized son who is his whole world. On the other, he’s got the smart-mouthed nurse he stood up. Getting back into Serena’s good graces will be tough, but with those bedroom eyes and killer legs becoming the center of his fantasies, he won’t stop until he gets her right where he wants her—in bed.
The bad and the good
Getting together with Lorenzo would definitely liven up Serena’s life, but Lorenzo’s made it clear that he and his son are a package deal. When it seems that all Lorenzo wants is a new mother for his boy, will Serena be willing to settle for that, when her heart wants so much more?
*This novel is a standalone romance featuring characters first introduced in HOUSE OF PAYNE: SAGE. While an ex-wife is mentioned, there are no love triangles (because I frigging hate them and they make me stabby), no cheating, and no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed. Due to adult language and sexual content, this novel is not intended for people under the age of eighteen.
About the Author
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance author, or a romance author who was also a figure skating pro. Now, with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

Serena is dedicated to her career as a pediatric nurse which doesn’t leave her the time and energy for much else in her life. She met Lorenzo under less than ideal circumstances when she called both him and his son out for their bad behavior while his son was in the hospital. Whenever they were together the sparks flew but when he not only didn’t show up for their date but didn’t contact her, she wasn’t about to give him a second chance.
Lorenzo is a single father to his son Mattie, and he is the center of his life. He regrets that he wasn’t able to make it but convincing her to give him a second chance will take all the charm he has as she is very different from any other woman he has met before.
I enjoyed seeing the relationship develop not only between Serena and Lorenzo but her relationship with Mattie as well
