When city tycoon and part-time cowboy Alex Trask proposes to curvy Laura, she thinks he’s crazy. After all, they've only met once and haven’t even kissed!
But when he offers to help her company solve its cash flow problems and stave off bankruptcy, what other choice does she have?
Since he’ll only assist her if she agrees to marry him, Laura becomes a whirlwind bride. Since one of Alex’s conditions is they have a real marriage, she risks her heart by falling in love with the enigmatic billionaire.
But will she ever discover the real reason Alex proposed? Could he ever fall in love with a curvy girl like her?
“The bed’s comfortable.” A sexy grin rumpled the corners of his mouth. “I come here whenever I can get away from the city.”
Alone? Laura wanted to ask, but didn't, in case she didn't like the answer. A sudden thought occurred to her. What if … what if their definitions of marriage differed?
“Alex.” She licked suddenly dry lips, barely aware that he’d caught the small movement and turned all his attention on her. “When … when you said a real marriage …” she paused. This was so awkward. Why on earth hadn't she thought of this before she’d married him?
“I meant a real marriage.” He pulled her towards him, until there was barely an inch of space separating their bodies.
Finding it hard to think, let alone breathe, Laura tried again. “Yes, but what about … other people?”
He scowled. “There won’t be any one else in our marriage, Laura,” he said firmly. “Just you and me.”
Relief flooded through her. “Okay,” she whispered, allowing herself to relax in his embrace.
The next instant, he tightened his arms around her. “I hope we’re clear on this point,” he growled.
“Very,” she managed to utter, before he kissed her.
His lips claimed hers, his tongue demanding immediate entry. Surrendering with a small sigh, Laura curled her arms around his neck as he deepened the kiss.
