Amanda Zachary is about to negotiate the deal of her career. A successful merger between her company and Brant computers, a family held competitor, would guarantee Amanda a bigger slice of the corporate pie. The backing of BC's president Eric Brant should guarantee the success of the merger but when Amanda arrives at his office armed with her deal-making proposal she finds Simon Brant, Eric’s cousin - and one of the majority shareholders in the company - wants nothing to do with this merger. Amanda has a big, sexy, stubborn obstacle to her achievement in Simon Brant.

As the creative genius behind the majority of Brant computers’ innovative designs, Simon has a huge bargaining chip he hopes to use to stave off the negotiations. He is not interested in giving up control of the company or laying-off loyal employees. No matter how convincing Amanda’s arguments may be — or how much he really wants her — Simon is determined that this merger will not go through. Between his experiments, the negotiations, and convincing Amanda to accept him, Simon has his work cut out for him.

Series author Lucy Monroe debuts her first single-title release with the wildly successful Kensington Brava imprint. I can think of no better way to warm up a cool autumn evening than with a Brava release. The Real Deal is sweet, funny, sexy, and satisfying to the very last page. I really didn’t want to let Amanda and Simon go and trust me neither will you.
