Zee Irwin's story, Off-Duty Holiday, appears in this anthology to start the series off. 

Off-Duty Holiday

Ten years was a long time for Will to be away in the Army, in and out of war zones. But it had kept him away from his meddling mother. 

Now, off-duty, tired and ready for things to change, when Will returned to town to surprise his sister, he wasn’t prepared for her best friend, Ava, to instantly tug at his heart strings.


Writing romance novels turned into a full-time career for Ava, but she felt like a fraud. 

She had never actually had a great romance—yet. A visit to the beach for the holiday could change all of that when her best friend’s brother showed up unexpectedly.


When family ties proved too much over Christmas, Will proposes a fake dating arrangement with Ava to provide the needed relief from family drama.


But will real sparks fly between them or will they keep the fake part of the arrangement—and both miss a chance for long-lasting romance?
