Bethany West swapped her highly lucrative modeling career for her dream job as a funeral director when she partnered at Smythe & Co. Mortuary.

She expected to blow the roof off the Victorian-era relic with her eco-friendly innovations and death positive attitude. Instead she’s only managed to piss off her bitter business partner, George Smythe, a man dead set on maintaining the status quo and driving Bethany out of his namesake business.

Sick and tired of his antiquated ways, it’s even worse pretending she doesn’t have feelings for the grump in the gray suit, a man so rigid, he probably has embalming fluid surging through his veins. If only she could only convince him to stop torturing himself about his past.

When the pair travel to a mortuary conference in New Orleans—competing against each other in dueling embalming demonstrations—Bethany finally gets the chance to exhume what’s really buried beneath George’s ice-cold contempt for the living. Little by little, he lets her dig. Soon enough, he starts to recognize not only the value of her business model, but an intense and dangerous attraction to the blonde bombshell mortician.

Bethany learns the truth behind George’s past, and it’s more disheartening (and more mundane) than she suspected. Unless George opens up and leans on her—at the risk of succumbing to their cremation-level attraction, he’ll jeopardize both the business and their hearts by refusing the true partnership they both need.

Content Warning: This book contains graphic depictions of the dead and deathcare procedures, kink, and career burnout.


About the Author

Megan Montgomery writes romance novels for weirdos—always adding an extra protein shot of humor. She and her husband, Johnathon Olavarria co-host Forced Proximity podcast, a weekly romance book and movie club.

Her debut novel, Well . . . THAT Was Awkward was inspired by her homesickness for southern Maryland. She now lives halfway across the US on the prairie with her husband, son, and mom.

When she’s not writing, reading, lifting weights, or cooking dinners her son won’t eat, you’ll find her toiling in the garden or brewing potions from her medicinal herbs.
