Allegra Maxwell is sick of the monotony of life. It’s all work and no play, and right now she wants to play. She shows up at her company’s yearly meeting with one goal in mind: have a one night stand with a stranger. What she doesn’t count on is Devlin Pierce walking through the door.
When Allegra first met Devlin, she knew he would be nothing but trouble. After he proved her theory true last year, she made a vow to avoid him at all costs. He’s the last person she wants to see, and he knows it. He refuses to leave her alone though. As much as she tries to fight it, the pull he has on her is undeniable. Her ability to resist him proves impossible when Devlin makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
One night. That’s all he asks. That’s all she wants. Or is it?
His fingers graze my chin, carefully turning my face back to his. “What is it, Allegra?”
In a voice barely above a whisper, I say, “I couldn’t possibly imagine being loved like women are in the movies.”
He frowns at this. “That’s no way to live your life.”
“How else can I when all I’ve suffered is heartbreak while all my peers marry and have children? I feel like I’m one of the spinsters in a Jane Austen novel.”
“You’re only twenty-five for God’s sake.”
“Exactly.” Halfway through my twenties with no prospects in life. No suitors, no love, no happiness.
“You’re still young. You may be sexy as hell but you’re not just some pretty face. You’re smart, sophisticated, honest, and incredibly funny. Most guys are terrified of a woman who can give them a run for their money. They want a woman they can easily manipulate, someone who is just arm candy.
“What do you want?”
He takes my hand in his. “The whole package. Beauty is only skin deep. I want a woman with everything, one who fulfills my desires physically and emotionally.” He’s playing with my fingers, weaving his around mine then letting go only to do it again. He makes eye contact and brings my hand up to his lips. He presses a warm kiss on top of my hand, and then turns it over to place one on my palm.
When he lets go of my hand, I almost reach to grab his again. I finally breathe again and it comes out a little shaky. Silently, I curse myself for feeling something. He’s getting to me.
Oh, boy, is he getting to me.
