Linc always felt he was the black sheep of the family. He likes racing and holds no
interest in politics. He does not wish to follow in his dad’s footsteps. So, what better way
to get back at his family than to jump into a marriage with a sexy, erotic woman with a
scandalous profession? It will shock the conservative voters. But one thing he never
expected was to fall for a woman who would turn his world upside down.

Eve has a project to work on, and she cannot do it with her mother constantly badgering
her. So how does one irritate their mother while keeping her at a distance? Why, marry
a man who is loaded with testosterone! By marrying Linc, this seals a deal for the next
nine months, and it should work to her advantage. Unfortunately, Eve did not foretell
actually giving Linc a ‘quickie divorce’ when all this was over. All the other men had
walked away in her life, why not Linc, right?

It broke my heart when Linc told Eve about overhearing his father talking at the funeral
home. He expressed to Linc’s grandfather how he hated him and how he gave up so
much to please him. That was a very tender moment.

The chemistry of the two characters is so hot it leaves the pages smoldering. It is so
supercharged that it could light firecrackers on the fourth of July with no strike of a
match, and just the touch of a page could ignite a keg of dynamite! And that is just the
banter between the two and their families. The sex is even more fiery. Ms. Raye has a
flair for writing that ignites the pen like a burning torch and scorches the paper with
consuming fire. You will not be disappointed in this book.
