Margot McCleery refuses to let Bentley Wellington weasel his way into her life. After her grandmother bids on him at an auction - and wins - she discovers they're stuck together for thirty days.
In the same house.
Under the same roof.
Eating the same food.
She'd rather push him off a cliff than have anything to do with the notorious playboy. But his smiles start breaking down her defenses, not to mention the compliments, the flowers, the conversations. And since her parents' death he's the only man who's ever looked at her like she wasn't broken.
Bentley Wellington has never wanted for anything. Until now.
His sexual prowess is legendary.
The list of women he's seduced - endless.
So proving himself to his grandfather by cheering up the shy romance novelist Margot McCleery - easy.
At least it should be, but the minute he meets the woman, she sees right through him, and rather than fall for his easy charm, she fights him at every turn. It's going to take more than his playboy ways to win her over, but relying on his heart has never been an option - after all, why rely on something so easily breakable?
