(From the publisher):
Her fate was sealed with one kiss… One kiss, one innocent embrace was all it took for Tisha’s father to jump to all the wrong conclusions and demand that Roarke Madison do the right thing by his daughter. Tisha knew she would not be able to move her father from his adamant stand, but surely Roarke would put a stop to this ridiculous talk of marriage. But Roarke was no help at all. First he accused Tisha of engineering the whole thing to trap him. Then he presented her with the most beautiful diamond solitaire engagement ring…
“This is all your fault,” Tisha accused. “Why did you let dad bully you into agreeing to marry me?” “Guilt, I suppose,” Roarke answered calmly. “Guilt?” she flared. “There was nothing to be guilty about! Nothing happened!” “You’re right. Physically nothing happened.” An eyebrow quirked as his gaze roamed over her. “But in my mind, let’s say that it didn’t end with kisses, little girl.” “We’re getting…off the track,” Tisha stammered, turning away from him. His hands settled around her waist in a provocative caress. “I though we were just getting on the track.” He nuzzled her neck. “We’re engaged. We should enjoy some of the pleasures that go along with it.” Tisha gulped. “You forget we’re trying to find a way out of this engagement.” Tisha gulped. “Are we?” he asked. Then his mouth came down on hers….
