From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a sexy, new standalone contemporary romance in her Fusion Series, THE BEAUTY OF US, releasing August 22, 2017! Grab your copy today and get to know Trevor and Riley!

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

“What are you thinking?” she asks. My gaze finds hers.

“I have an idea,” I reply.


“I’m going to take you out on a date. I’m doing to show you how a woman should be treated.”

She tips her head to the side. “What if I say no?”

“You can’t.”

She busts out laughing. “Trust me, I can say no.”

“Okay, I’m hoping you won’t say no. I have a fragile ego.”

“I call bullshit on that as well,” she says with a smile. “What do you have in mind?”

“Let me worry about the details. I’ll pick you up tomorrow around four.”

“I’ll be at the restaurant then.”

I grin and nod. “So will I.”


I nod and push my glasses up my nose, already forming a plan.

“What should I wear?” she asks.

Nothing at all.

“Whatever you want. We’ll start out with something casual.”

“Okay.” She smiles. “Has anyone ever told you that the glasses are sexy?”

Many times. But I grin and shake my head no.

“Well, they are.”

“So, you think I’m sexy?”

She giggles. “I didn’t say that. I said the glasses are sexy.”

“I think you’re sexy,” I reply honestly. “And I’m not quite sure what to do about that.”

She looks taken aback for a moment, blinking quickly, but she recovers and tucks her hair behind one ear.

“Well, I guess you’re taking me out on a date tomorrow, so we’ll see what happens.”

“This is a lot of pressure to perform well on said date.”

“You’re the one who suggested it,” she says with a smirk. “Poor sucker.”

She makes me laugh. She’s dry and witty, and I never know what’s going to come out of her mouth. Spending time with her, away from work and on an actual date, is going to be fun.

And I’m going to do my best to keep my hands off her.

It’s a first date, after all.

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
