In the pitch blackness, trapped between floors, Peter Reynolds had almost convinced himself that the woman in the suddenly toocramped-for-comfort elevator car was not off-limits…and that the desperate passion they shared would not change everything.
But then the lights came on, and Peter knew that he'd crossed more than one line. For Lucy Grainger was his secretary…and now, quite possibly, pregnant.
If Peter were any other man, Lucy would make the perfect wife and mother to his children. But he was not the marrying kind for reasons Lucy could never understand. Yet, if that were true, why was he secretly hoping that the stick turned blue?
Bestselling, award-winning author Heidi Betts began her love affair with the romance genre in junior high school, where she used to sneak romance novels into study hall when she should have been doing her homework. It didnít take long to decide she wanted to write a few romances of her own, so she set out to do just that. Her first book was released by Dorchester Publishing in 2000, with five more to follow. From there, Heidi moved into the contemporary arena by writing numerous category titles for Silhouette Desire, and recently she signed with St. Martinís Press to begin writing funny, sexy single titles. With each new book, Heidi asks herself how she can bring to life endearing heroes and heroines whom readers will believe are meant for each other. A with each new novel to hit the stands, readers and reviewers alike declare she knows how to create a story that sizzles, charms, and delights from the first page to the last. Her first title for Silhouette Desire landed at #1 on the Waldenbooks/Borders Series Romance Bestseller List, where her books have continued to make an appearance ever since. Heidi loves to read, write, watch movies (and just a little too much television), and surround herself with furry, four-legged friends in her home in the beautiful hills of Central Pennsylvania. She loves to hear from readers through her website, so please visit her at HeidiBetts.com.read more
