Boston – Present Day

It has been nine years since Finn Murphy and Beah Jenkinson's brief marriage ended. They both still work for the same company—Murphy International. However, her job and life are now in Great Britain, while his remains in Boston where the main office is. While Finn and Beah have mostly avoided each other, now they are forced to work together to woo a client in a quest to acquire an expensive piece of art to sell. No matter how much she prepared herself to meet her ex again after all these years, the unexpected flash of spark between them is too hard to ignore. It isn't long before they're sharing a bed again. Beah thought it would only be a one-night stand, but when she's requested by her employer to come to Boston to work for an extended period of time, it's inevitable that she would run into Finn…and the sparks would fly again.

Finn can't forget Beah. He realizes now that they married too quickly and too young. But now they are both older—and maybe wiser? She makes it clear to him that she doesn't see any long-term future between them, so maybe a short-term affair to scratch the itch, then walk away from each other when their time together is over will work. Yet, the more time they spend together, the harder it is to be away from each other. When the job is done, will Beah return to London, or will they realize that they are still in love?

An instant attraction between Beah and Finn ended up with their romance turning into marriage. Things didn't work out, and they went their separate ways. As BACK IN HIS EX'S BED opens, she is worried about how she'll react being around her ex after all these years. He is pleasant and charming toward her, which means those old feelings that they had for each other nine years ago come roaring back. They both regret that their marriage failed and don't want to make the same mistake twice. But is hopping into bed the right thing to do to squelch the attraction? Afterward, Beah is asked to come to Boston to work on the big sale that is coming up. Then, Finn gets a phone call from an old friend of theirs. That call leads to Finn and Beah working together on planning a wedding…but not theirs.

It's clear in BACK IN HIS EX'S BED that the old feelings didn't die, and the sexual chemistry between them is as hot as ever. Set against the backdrop of art collecting and auctions, this tale is the final book in the Murphy International series about the three Murphy brothers (Finn, Carrick, and Ronan), plus there is a secondary romance between fellow employees, Keely Matthews and Dare Seymour, who have been having a no-strings affair. Everyone's story is finally completed in BACK IN HIS EX'S BED. A sizzling tale you won't want to miss, be sure to pick up BACK IN HIS EX'S BED.
