Emotionally scarred by personal tragedy, Tori Morgan needs to get away from Houston and figure out what to do with her life. Seeking refuge and time to think, she accepts a position at a remote ranch in Montana. Firmly convinced love happens once in a lifetime, she resigns herself to being alone.
Her new boss is the first complication in her plan. Mesmerized by his voice on the phone, she approaches their first meeting with a mixture of anticipation and dread.
And rightfully so. Six feet four inches of man capped off with a potent sexuality that makes clear thinking difficult, Wade McBride wreaks havoc on her emotions from the start. To make matters worse, she discovers she must pretend to be his fiancé for the sake of her new patient.
Wade needed a nurse for his mother but got more than he bargained for in Tori. She was a breath of fresh air in world full of crap. Pretending to be in love with her seemed like a good idea at the time, even as they try to ignore the instant, heady desire percolating between them, unaware of danger watching from the shadows.
The test kiss changed everything.
Once was not enough for Wade. Every inch of him craved more. But it isn’t real, it’s pretend. Right?
Tori is convinced his mouth should be registered as a lethal weapon. His kisses are electric, his voice seductive. Her body begs for his touch…but is she ready for this? Will she ever be ready?
They dance around the elephant in the room until they have to face the facts…what happens when make believe becomes real?
