mardi gras

Mia Sanderson has been in love with her boss, Ty Brewer, for years, but ladies’ man Ty only sees her as a friend, and even worse, a good girl. So when Mia and Ty are invited to the same Mardi Gras party, Mia decides this is her chance to live out a fantasy. Donning Mardi Gras mask, wig, and colored contacts, Mia masquerades as the seductive Mistress Mina, the bad girl of Ty’s dreams. But what happens if Ty discovers her true identity? She fears she’s risking both their friendship and her job, but for a night with Ty, it’s worth it.
