Spotlight & Giveaway: The Girl Next Door by Emma Hart

Today, HJ is pleased to share with you Emma Hart’s new release: The Girl Next Door




One accidental pregnancy. One fake husband. What can go wrong?

There’s nothing like starting your Monday morning with a positive pregnancy test.

Trust me, I know. Because I’m looking at one right now.
All I can think is: Oh, hell. My grandmother is going to kill me.
This might just send her to an early grave, so there’s only one option—pretending the father is my new husband.

If only he’d agree to fake it.

Kai Connors was supposed to be nothing more than a one-night stand. A long, dirty, one-night stand fueled by one too many tequila shots, where the only promise was to never speak of it again.

But if my unfairly sexy next-door neighbor gets his way, this fake marriage could turn out to be very, very real…


Enjoy an exclusive excerpt from The Girl Next Door 


“If you insist on waking up at this ungodly hour,” I said, lying back down. “I’m hungry.”

He laughed from his perch on the end of the bed. “I see how this fake marriage is going to work.”

“If you wake me up early, you have to feed me. Besides, the baby is hungry. It told me.”

“Ivy, the baby is the size of a pea. I doubt it’s telling you anything.”

“How do you know how big it is?”

“It’s this novel idea called the Internet—you can search and find out anything you want to know. And some things you don’t.”

“Very funny. I want some toast. Please. On setting three with lots of butter.”

“Setting three? So you want it toasted for three minutes?”

I frowned. “Is that what the numbers are for?”

“Yeah. They’re a timer.”

“Huh. I never knew that,” I mused. Which was ridiculous, because wasn’t it so obvious?

“I read it on the internet,” Kai said flippantly. “You should try it sometime.”

Scoffing, I said, “I use the internet. Mostly to diagnose myself with deadly diseases and watch cat videos, but I use it.”
