Blurb: One fake engagement can save two reputations... if they can keep their hands off each other.
When claustrophobic Anna gets trapped in an elevator with hunky Skylar, the last thing she expects is to exit an engaged woman. But Skylar insists tongues will stop wagging when people realize she is marrying him and not sleeping with her boss.
Skylarâs father (her boss) invites her to spend Thanksgiving weekend with his entire family in Vermont, and he wonât take no for an answer. She has no clue how she will get through four days under the same roof with the sexy, arrogant Skylar. Then she discovers they expect her to share a room with her fiancÃ©. Now what?
With her job on the line, will she also be willing to risk her heart?
Pre-order Special .99 cents. Limited Time. Price goes up to $3.99 after the release date.
The door shut before she could get her bearings, and the elevator began to descend. That was when she noticed the other occupant, the last person she wanted to be trapped in an elevator with: Griffinâs son.
Skylar gave her the expected customary nod to acknowledge her existence.
Pursing her lips together, she returned the gesture. She didnât see any reason to pretend they liked each other. Three years ago when sheâd joined the firm he had almost destroyed her career within a week. Stubborn and bad-tempered, Skylar had treated her like his personal gopher rather than a colleague with a law degree. Things only got worse when his father put them on the same trial. Sheâd been second chair, of course, but Skylar wouldnât listen to a word she said. Every time she opened her mouth he cut her off. Then while she was considering going to his father about the situation, Skylar complained to the man about her. He had almost gotten her fired. Sheâd been pulled off the trial and put on a case that a monkey could have won.
Since then sheâd avoided him like her life depended on it.
She had a second reason to steer clear of him as well, an embarrassing reason. She hated to admit it even to herself, but Skylar Griffin oozed sex appeal. Her skin heated and her lower region pulsated every time she looked at him. Stylishly cropped hair the color of warm sand and eyes crystal blue like the Caribbean Sea reminded her of a much-needed tropical vacation. He worked as hard as she did and always seemed to be in his office. Yet, the deceitful golden brown skin would convince anyone he spent his days on the beach instead of sitting behind a desk. Not to mention, he had a surferâs body with lean muscle and natural agility.
