For the first time in years, I want…
I want Knox Wright. My best friend’s brother, my boss…the man who breaks my still-shattered heart.
Knox was a college hockey legend and, now, he’s one of the most successful architects in decades. I was the new hire whose desperate need to move on from that night drove me to succeed.
I never should have accepted the position, not once I looked into Knox Wright’s eyes and felt the heat deep in my belly…but I did. Because Knox makes me feel alive. And as I fall under Knox’s spell, our relationship turns intense and deep…and secret. When our affair runs the risk of being exposed, I face a far more intimate betrayal than I ever expected.
Arrogant Architect is a best friend’s brother/forbidden/workplace romance inspired by British Bedmate.

Alexa spent a good part of her youth traveling. From Budapest to Belize, Calgary to Coober Pedy, she soaked in the myriad smells, sounds, and feels of these gorgeous places, wishing she could live in them all–at least for a while. And she does in her books.
She lives in New Mexico with her husband, children, and Great Pyrenees pup, Ash. When not writing, schlepping, or volunteering, she can be found in her tiny kitchen, channeling her inner Barefoot Contessa.
COCKY HERO CLUB
What should have been one of the happiest days of her life turned into one of the most tragic and Emmaline is still trying to pick up the pieces. The job opportunity at the architectural firm that is owned by her friend and her two brothers might just be the new beginning she needs both professionally and personally.
Knox has a tragedy of his own in the past which changed the life he was planning. He may be attracted to Emmaline, but he has learnt in the most painful way possible the consequences of getting involved with a co-worker and isn’t about to make that mistake again.
This is an emotional story about love, family and healing from the challenges that life has thrown at them. Their journey wasn’t without its complications, but no one is more deserving of a happy ever after than these two.
