Joni Montgomery needs a guy to pretend to be her boyfriend long enough to persuade certain family members to let up on the marriage thing. Her last hope is a blind date. Carter Sullivan is tall, gorgeous and agreeable to her scheme. Perfect! He's also too tempting for Joni to resist. But a little between-the-sheets time will just make their brief charade more believable, right? Carter believes in love at first sight. And when he meets the beautiful, sexy Joni, he falls hard and fast. Too bad she's insisting this relationship is temporary. After some steamy embraces, he's convinced she feels the same way about him… even if she won't admit it. Fine. He'll just tantalize her senses until she says she wants him, too!
