Abigail Haddock is stunning, sensible, and some would say . . . stuffy. But it’s not really her fault. She was raised in one of Wessco’s oldest, most affluent, aristocratic families—“stuffy” is their middle name. So is successful. Abby’s working overtime to distinguish herself as a top-notch physician, just as her family legacy demands.
She doesn’t have time for nonsense.
Tommy Sullivan’s all about nonsense.
Sure, he’s an elite bodyguard with lethal skills and co-owner of the renowned, S&S Securities Firm—protector of the wealthy and titled. But he’s also rowdy, fun and thoroughly irresistible.
Tommy knows how to have a good time, and he’s never seen someone more in need of a good time than Abby. The lass needs long, wet, filthy kisses—STAT—and he’s just the man for the job.
It doesn’t take long for a wildly sexy, sinfully satisfying, no-strings attached arrangement to turn into something more. Something sweet and addictive and real. But Tommy and Abby are too royally stubborn to admit it.
Opposites attract, everyone knows that. But can they last—can they love…for forever?

Emma Chase is a safe bet. If you’re in a funk and want to wallow in the unfairness of life? Fugettaboutit. This Dirty Charmer won’t let you. Tommy Sullivan is one of the sexiest, cheekiest, most laid-back heroes you’ll ever read about and he’ll sweep you off your feet and steel your heart a second later.
Shame is for losers—which is why I have none.
Abby Haddock is driven and, yes, a little stuffy. In a family of overachievers she feels ordinary and average and an urge to excel. Enter Tommy, unconventional and so the opposite of what she thinks she needs. What Abby needs though is some balance to her stressful job so an arrangement with benefits with a beautiful bodyguard who challenges her might just be the thing. What was supposed to be fun and a stress-reliever soon turns into so much more. Tommy does his thing, you know, the feet-sweeping and heart-stealing, chases her with the tenacity of bulldog and Abby tumbles head over heels and so totally unexpected that she doesn’t brace for impact.
Tommy Sullivan is a protector. A shield. A guarder of bodies and minds. I’ve seen that—I’ve felt it. So I have to believe that whatever these feelings are and wherever they may lead . . . he’ll be careful with me. And for now, that’s enough.
It’s hard to resist Tommy. Always a cocky grin and a comeback on his lips he will entertain you throughout the entire story. Emma Chase knows how to write a lovable manwhore with a soft heart who will stay a rogue even after he has been tamed. I really liked that Abby took her time to figure things out – a little reserved and emotionally stunted she needed to analyze the consequences of their relationship from every angle. But Tommy also softened her, made her stronger, lighten up a little and have fun. And he makes her feel extraordinary and special, a feeling she isn’t familiar with. I adored their relationship which is so full of laughter and honesty and tenderness.
Emma Chase connects this book directly to her Royally series. You’ll see some familiar characters – I delight in those reunions. I love catching up with heroes and heroines from previous books! I’ve been waiting for DIRTY CHARMER a long time. It was so worth it. I had so much fun watching Abby and Tommy fall in love and enjoyed every minute with them. And damn their chemistry, DAYUM. Emma Chase has a knack for writing super-endearing characters in sexy, cute stories. I can’t wait to see whose book will be next!
I give him my biggest, brightest smile. Then he’s smiling back, sending me a sexy wink just because he can. And life isn’t just perfect . . . it’s extraordinary.
