ABOUT THE BOOK:
But Adam has a tempting offer to make. One that will keep his mother off his back so he can continue his regularly scheduled life filled with big parties and beautiful women. It sounds like the perfect plan until a certain beauty proves to be a much bigger challenge than he ever expected. Worse, he can't seem to get her off his mind.
Confident that she's too smart to fall for his games, Clara accepts. But when two headstrong forces begin to clash, someone will have to fold or break all their rules.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
“I can do passion.” Adam inched closer, pulling her beautiful eyes back to him. “In fact, I’m very good at passion.”
Clara drew in a long breath and a smile stretched across her lips. “Oh, I’ve heard. Everything from teaching assistants to twins.”
Adam leaned back and his deep laugh filled the room. She could go from sweet to brash in one breath. “So I’m no saint.”
“Far from it.”
Adam took another chance and leaned forward again. “But that doesn’t mean I can’t change.”
Clara’s swift movements reflected his own. “I’m not trying to change you, Adam. And I wouldn’t.”
“You don’t think I can?”
“I didn’t say that. But you don’t change for people. You change for yourself.”
“I disagree. So what are you afraid of?”
Clara gently bit down on her lips. It was an unconscious effort to keep her mouth shut, but it drew Adam’s thoughts toward a much more carnal impulse.
The color in her suddenly rosy cheeks enticed him further. If it weren’t for the hum of the party vibrating the kitchen walls, Adam would have slowly taunted and teased her until she was convinced he was worth the risk. He didn’t believe a broken heart was her biggest fear. There had to be more. After his talk with Luke and Deacon, it was obvious he would have to step up or step aside.
Adam leaned closer, pushing her soft cheek until her gaze saw nothing but him. His voice filled with desire as he whispered, “I can change that.”
