Once Upon a Time…

(A Dare Nation Novella)
by Carly Phillips
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips returns to her sexy Dare world of rich billionaire sports heroes in her new DARE NATION SERIES!
She handles cocky jocks for a living, but her love life isn’t as successful.
Brianne Prescott, publicist for Dare Nation Sports Agency, grew up the only girl with four brothers, three of whom are sports royalty. She’s a pro not just at work but at being used by men who want access to her famous family. She’s learned the hard way that everyone wants something from her, always.
He’s her brother’s best friend and the first man who sees her for who she really is.
When Dr. Hudson Northfield rescues Bri from a homeless man outside the clinic where he works, he really notices her for the first time. Soon she’s accompanying him to New York for a family wedding, and despite her siblings’ overprotective protests, they’re falling in love.
But Hudson has a secret he can’t reveal. If he wants access to a trust fund in his name, his father demands something in return. Hudson has to marry and provide an heir or his dream of opening a state-of-the-art health center will be destroyed. Suddenly the man who didn’t need anything from her appears to be the biggest user of them all. Unless Hudson can convince her he can live without money but he can’t live without her.

An Exclusive Interview With Carly Phillips:
~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog
I lalaloved this story and Bri and Hudson! How did you choose them for this novella?
I always planned to write about the only Prescott sister. Bri is featured in all the Dare Nation stories and she deserved a book of her own! Hudson, as her brother, Braden’s best friend, seemed like the perfect match for my headstrong, smart heroine. I hope everyone enjoys their story!
If you could dream cast them in a movie, who would you cast?
Oh, love this! Mila Kunis is Brianne. Perfect, beautiful and compelling. And for Hudson, Ryan Paevy (and not just because I’m a General Hospital fan!)
What is one piece of advice you would give to an aspiring writer?
Don’t give up, learn your craft, and be nice to everyone you meet in the business. Okay more than one piece of advice!
