But leaving Alex may prove to be hard as Libby begins to fall in love with him.
The name of this book, A WEEK TO BE WILD, pretty much sums what is going on between Libby and Alex. She’s there to give a speech and do a little business and touristy things, but she ends up getting deliciously sidetracked by him. He is used to getting his way and knows how to use his charms. Libby hasn’t been involved with another man since her fiancé was killed years ago, so she’s ripe for a little romance. Alex is insatiable, and Libby can match him as she makes up for lost time.
The chemistry between Alex and Libby in A WEEK TO BE WILD is like a slow burn that finally bursts into flames. She is stunned at her reaction to him when she spots him staring at her at the party. Because she hasn’t been in the dating pool for a while, she isn’t sure how to react. But Alex convinces her to meet with him…for a potential business deal, of course. In A WEEK TO BE WILD, not all their time is spent in bed as he takes her on adventures to see the country. He has a business to run, but he wants her by his side, in and out of bed.

Excerpt: Copyright © 2018 A Week to Be Wild by JC Harroway
The man occupying her thoughts swept up beside her on a cloud of freshly showered deliciousness, his hand taking a proprietorial hold of the back of her barstool and his smoky, heavy-lidded smile stripping her naked.
‘Hi.’ Libby closed her slack-jawed mouth and swivelled to face him, turning her back on the stranger, never one to pass up a golden opportunity. She hated rudeness, but if Beer Breath was too stubborn or thick-skulled to take the hint...
Alex kept his stare on her, his smile genuine and warm enough to melt her underwear clean off, and then signalled the waiter with a flick of his wrist.
Libby sensed the moment when Beer Breath slinked away, and the hairs on the back of her neck settled—but only temporarily, because Alex hadn’t taken his eyes off her. In fact, he was looking at her as if he was seconds from devouring her whole.
She shivered, delicious tendrils snaking to all her erogenous zones. ‘What are you doing here?’ Libby took a slug of her previously untouched drink, the burn calming her enough to meet his bold stare with one of her own.
‘I came to invite you out for a late supper. I was on my way to Reception and then I spotted you here.’ His hand slid from the back of her stool, and he settled into the one next to her, passing his order to the waiter before returning his disconcerting focus to her.
She stared back, lost for words and missing the proximity of his hand on her chair. He was close enough that his warmth traversed the space between them, but far enough away that she battled her body’s urge to sway closer. And keep on swaying.
‘What?’ One corner of his mouth kicked up. ‘What kind of host would I be if I left you to fend for yourself on your first night in a strange city?’
She couldn’t help the snort that left her. ‘The non-stalker kind...?’
He took the jibe with a cocksure arch of one brow, sipping wine while his poised stare flicked over her face from feature to feature.
Libby flushed hot all over. The ‘stalker’ comment had been beneath her. He hadn’t once touched her, hadn’t bought her drink, hadn’t tried to grab her phone, hadn’t even chased away her unwanted admirer—he had simply given her the out she’d wanted. The rest was all her.
What was wrong with her? Rudeness to a generous host and influential employer? All because he’d awoken needs within her? Needs too long dormant. Needs she’d never had before. Needs threatening to overwhelm her in their intensity.
Hardly his fault.
