Hearts on Hold
by Gracie MacGregor
Professor Brandon Blackshaw is a “mystorian” – a solver of historical mysteries – although the biggest mystery in his life right now is the intriguing, secretive, prickly Cate Boyd.
Brandon’s the gangly nerd who grew into a chick magnet rather than a mad-professor type. Fortunately, his ego has never quite caught up with his newfound sex appeal, and women have long taken second-place to his fascination with his work and his aspiration to become Cambridge University’s youngest-ever history chair. Until now.
Problem is, the monolithic multinational that funds his university research turns out to be the same company threatening Cate’s home.
She had big trust issues already; finding out he’s working for the enemy doesn’t endear Brandon to Cate, although the attraction between them sizzles in the Mediterranean heat. They need each other, in more ways than one, but love? That’s something Cate’s not

And when he discovers the horrifying secrets in Cate’s past as well as the very real dangers in her future, Brandon has to make some tough choices: the career pinnacle he’s worked for his whole life, or the woman who teaches him there other things worth fighting for.

The arrival of seductive, nosy professor Brandon Blackshaw seems too coincidental for comfort — especially when she discovers that Vena is his research partner. As the pressure mounts, Cate must decide which is more important: her hard-won privacy, or the future of her
