The Jinxed Journalist by Fiona West
For a newbie journalist, a royal scandal feels like Christmas come early... Brooke Everleigh just started her dream job in journalism, one she’d given up when she got pregnant from a one-night stand five years ago. Her first big story is everything she’d imagined it would be, holding the man who’d cursed her source with a magic kiss accountable--none other than King Edward. She wants his head on a platter, but she’ll settle for an admission of guilt and justice for his victim. Captain Saint had hoped for more time to get used to his new job as chief communications officer before getting embroiled in a scandal. Clearing his best friend’s name isn’t going to be easy, especially when telling the truth might mean worse trouble. Plus, the pretty blonde who’s pressing things is getting under his skin--too bad she shut him down the moment they met. When Brooke’s son lands in hot water at school, the school assigns the only available mentor: Captain Saint. With her son’s future at stake, Brooke is forced to cooperate with a man she doesn’t trust, regardless of how good-looking and good with kids he might be. Against her better judgment, their weekly meetings are leaving her weak in the knees. When the king makes it clear there’s no future for his chief communication officer and the reporter who’s trying to destroy his reputation, she’ll have to choose between her work and the captain who’s worked his way into her heart...
