Dear Enemy

Growing up, Macon Saint and Delilah hated each other.

Although Macon was good-looking, Delilah hated him, and the fact that he dated her wicked sister, Samantha.

It was such a relief when they broke up, as Delilah would never have to see him again.

However, a decade later, Macon—now a rising Hollywood star—sends Delilah a text after her sister stole a valuable heirloom from him.

What begins as sputtering sparks between Macon and Delilah explodes into unwelcome attraction.

Determined to keep her mother from learning of Samantha’s theft, Delilah offers to become Macon’s personal chef and assistant as a way of paying off the debt.

It’s a terrible idea from the onset, yet one that could lead to the birth of something beautiful.
