Heiress Ivy Smithson is determined to keep her flaky sister from making the worst mistake of her life: marrying the wrong man. Clearly, the guy is just after the family’s money. To stop her, Ivy teams up with her father’s gorgeous, wisecracking, and supremely difficult security consultant, ex-cop Joe Dunham. Ivy’s way too uptight to be his style, but she’s had his attention from the first — maybe because Joe always pays attention where women are concerned.
Bickering all the way, off they go on a mission to Vegas to track down Ivy’s sister and stop the wedding.When Ivy and Joe anger the wrong people, their lives get dangerous, but guns and gangsters aren’t the only threat they face.
Ivy knows Joe isn’t her type, so why does falling for the wrong guy feel very, very right?
“I mean it,” he said, reaching out to take her hand, brushing his thumb across the back of hers. The simple touch raised the fine hair on her arms. “I’d like to comfort you all night long.” His voice lowered, grew husky, and Ivy’s skin was on fire from the inside out.
She pulled her hand away with effort. “The cabin was a special situation,” she explained. “Not really the real world. Now that we’re back in the real world, I think we ought to try to put things between us on a professional footing once again.”
“The real world? I didn’t know we’d ever left it. Tell me about this distinction. Why is this motel parking lot the real world, but a cabin an hour or so away is magically not?” His jaw had that pugnacious angle that it took on when he made her life difficult, and Ivy sighed.
“When you put it that way, it sounds silly.”
