The Bastard Next Door
When Juliet Monaghan moved to New York, the plan was easy: wait tables, work on her art, and meet the man of her dreams. She's got the waitressing bit down pat, but as for the rest, well... She's trying. If it weren't for the mysterious White Rabbit, a secret admirer who supports her from afar, she'd probably have given up months ago.
Luke Paulson is a simple man with simple pleasures. All he wants is to be left in peace while he restores antique furniture and saves every penny he earns to set up an art gallery. And he could do it, too, if it weren't for the pesky beauty next door. Every time Juliet comes knocking, he answers. And every time she smiles, he does exactly what she asks.
This time, however, she's asking for more than he can give. Juliet needs Luke's help in discovering the identity of the elusive White Rabbit...her admirer, her patron, her friend. And, as she soon comes to learn, someone much closer to home than she ever imagined.
