A five-minute trolley ride, one troublemaking luggage, and two stolen identities. Six months later, two strangers discover they’re married. She wants an annulment. He has other plans.
Being illegally hitched is about the only way Chase Lennox would ever be shackled to any woman. But when the multimillionaire playboy finds out he’s married to the woman who caused him to lose the biggest deal of his life, Chase decides before he gives his new wife an annulment, she’s going to help him close the deal he’d lost.
Jessina Landi has a three-foot radius comfort zone. The last man she let into it cost her a lot more than a broken heart. And the huge debt she owes for that trust, well, it’s due. If she takes Chase Lennox's up on his offer, it’s sure to cover the bill.
There’s an annulment waiting at the end of their rainbow… well, that’s if they can get through the next two weeks without consummating the marriage.
“It’s just…” Those intense eyes turned back to her, clamping so tightly around her broken heart. “Jess, I do care about you—”
“Oh, Chase. I’m so sorry, I didn’t know. I didn’t understand, but—” She tried to get the words out, to tell him the truth, but he stopped her.
“No, sweetheart, I’m the one who’s sorry. I refused to let you in.” He paused and gazed at her for what felt like an eternity. “But you still got in. There’s a place deep inside this hardened body that you were able to touch. A place no other has ever reached. And there’s no denying it. I’ve always wanted you. But Jess, I must warn you,” he glanced over at his bedroom, “you should be afraid of what’s behind that door, because if you do go through it,” he looked back at her and touched her face with his warm palm, “well, it’s just, I can’t pretend anymore.” He kissed her gently on the lips before he disappeared behind the door—the very door that indeed terrified her…
Kelly resides in a quiet suburb somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. Her day job? Kelly works in health care representing a group of nursing facilities in the WNY area. She’s been faithfully writing for three years but did write her first book ten years ago. She put it down to raise her son as a single mom and then picked it back up when she and her son finally grew up. That's when she settled into her newly married adult life and started to seriously write again. She's dabbled with Romantic Suspense stories, but recently she's been on a contemporary kick. The recipe for the men in her stories: a dash of bad boy attitude, a cup of strong and confident and, of course, besides being packed with magnificent bodies, and doused with shameless aptitudes, they must have a tender heart you want to rip out of the pages (or your e-Reader) and take to bed with you at night.
