Too perfect. No guy like that would be interested in prim, awkward Marcia, notorious goody-goody and a twentysomething still clutching her v-card. She’s been following rules her whole life—but somewhere, the game changed. And left her behind.
So when she meets Damien, with his rumbling motorbike, gleaming piercings, and wicked imagination, she doesn’t care that he’s the exact opposite of “her type.” Her type would never dare her into such shocking, fiendishly inventive adventures—and she can’t wait to say yes.
Yes to whiskey in the middle of a workday. Yes to letting her hands roam over his body from the back of his bike. Yes to a fling full of wild abandon and absolutely no long-term potential. Except Damien’s not just the straightforward bad boy she imagined. And as they burn through Chicago’s nights, Marcia can’t shake the fear that this happiness is just another fairy tale…

As always, many people helped me with this book, answering questions, brainstorming ideas, and giving me inspiration.
First and foremost: Thank you to Anela Deen, winner of my newsletter contest to name the bakery in this book. “The Last Crumb” is exactly what I was looking for. Will be sending you books and cupcakes!
I want to thank everyone who loved Last Dance and poked at me to get Marcia’s story out there. It’s a great feeling to write a book you know people are excited to read.
Gratitude to Anne Calhoun for beta reading and enthusiasm. Your early love for Damien made all the difference.
Thanks to Julie Fine for reading and fact-checking, and for the amazing recipe suggestions!
Nancy Teichman Bauer gets credit for help for all things Chicago. Any mistakes are my own—especially because she told me not to argue with her.
