One business trip is all it takes for the unexpected...

As co-owner of Ives & Wells, Josh is ready to nail the most important business trip of his career. But does it have to include his business partner’s feisty younger sister Layla escorting him to New Orleans?

As much as they hate each other, it isn’t completely crazy. Technically, she’s an employee and Josh is her boss. But one fight after another leads to an explosion in the bedroom… more than once.

Josh definitely wasn’t planning on nailing more than a good business deal on this trip.

Unfortunately, their plan to leave the antics in the bedroom and out of the office falls apart as soon as they return home. First, because some of their mutual talents can’t be forgotten. Two, because there is a business partner that may kill Josh as soon as he figures out what happened. And three, because some secrets can only be kept for so long, give or take nine months.

The Unexpected Card is a standalone novel from the new Mr. Boss series. This workplace romance is filled with banter, a swoony boss, and surprises along the way.

E.H. Lyon hates folding laundry and decided one day to avoid it by writing witty and a little steamy stories. Her stories take you on a light and bantering ride until the very end, when your couple finds their happily ever after. Along the way, there may be the occasional emotional twist thrown in and the essential appearance of a bottle of whiskey. E.H. has a thing for witty women, determined well-dressed men who fall in love, and the steamy scenes that bring them together.

An American from the Midwest, she now lives in Northern Europe with her small pack of humans. She believes the essence of balance is sitting on a yoga mat listening to music whilst eating a donut. And she absolutely loves finding a new book boyfriend to swoon-over, hearing from other authors, and connecting with people who read her books.


"This is my first book by this author and it won’t be my last. In fact I have grand plans to read her back catalogue as soon as possible.
Josh & Layla’s story covers several tropes that are my kryptonite. Then for this book to be so incredibly well written with such likable characters I couldn’t read it fast enough only to be disappointed once I got to the end.
I loved Layla’s sassiness, and how very strong and confident she was. She was a wonderful character to read. But it was Josh who was the standout for me. He inadvertently made people have preconceived ideas about him, which he definitely played into mind you, but he was such a good guy underneath it all and honestly he was so swoony when he did this that I have now declared him my new book boyfriend!!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book." ~Sharon

Layla and Josh's story was a cute lighthearted read and covers so many favorite tropes; hate to lovers, best friend's sister, and an unplanned pregnancy that all works out in the end. The sparring is fun and I enjoyed watching them evolve individually and together as they acknowledge their love. This was a fun escape from reality. ~Cindy
