Will he give her answers…
or tempt her to his bed?
Helping Nicole Cruz discover who fathered her orphaned nephew draws ranch and casino owner Desmond Pierce into the cruel legacy of secrets he’d rather avoid. Also unavoidable: the red-hot attraction sizzling between them. But the faster Nicole gets the answers she came for, the sooner she’ll leave Mesa Falls. And that’s suddenly a prospect more daunting than any scandals they may uncover…
From Harlequin Desire: Luxury, scandal, desire—welcome to the lives of the American elite.
With her family still trying to heal after the passing of her sister Nicole is determined to find out is the father of her nephew Matthew which is why she finds herself back in Mesa Falls. She is a woman with a strong sense of values who only wants the best both financially and emotionally for her nephew so she can’t afford to be distracted by her attraction to Desmond.
Desmond’s attraction to Nicole is a complication he doesn’t need as due to his past he doesn’t believe his future will include love or a family of his own. As their investigation into the truth escalates so does the chemistry between them but when all is revealed will this be the beginning for them or the end?
Nicole is a woman who would do anything for her family and Desmond is the same way when it comes to those he cares about. There are a few surprises and setbacks along the way but they couldn’t be a better match.
