(From the publisher):
“We don’t mix — we’re like oil and water.” Brock was adamant that his life-style and Stephanie’s would never allow a relationship to grow. He was constantly traveling and led a sophisticated, jet-set existence. Stephanie was happy in her work at the quiet New Hampshire inn. Stephanie had heard about Brock Canfield long before she met him. Her brother had warned her that Brock would break her heart. But in spite of Brock’s stand and the fact that her brother’s warning seemed to be coming true, Stephanie loved Brock. And she knew she was powerless to change that…
“Any woman would satisfy you, Brock.” And Stephanie knew that the words she spoke were true. “But you’re the one in my arms. Why don’t you satisfy me?” Brock challenged softly. Stephanie’s heart ran away with itself at the thought. Both his arms were around her, his fingers spread as they roamed over her shoulders, her back, slowly caressing and molding her to him, his virility a potent force that left her weak. Her head was tipped back, enabling her to look into his eyes. They were smiling at her, with an inner satisfaction and supreme confidence, the certainty of his ability to seduce her. Stephanie supposed she was transparent; her pride was injured that she was such an easy conquest for him. But was there a woman born who could deny his attraction for long?
