He’s hot. Rich. Domineering. And grumpy.
Hedley Decker is used to people obeying his every command, but the unconscious stray dog on his doorstep isn’t impressed, and nor is the pretty veterinarian who saves it. Overhearing that she needs a date for her ex boyfriend’s wedding, he proposes a deal: she’ll help him find the real owner before the puppies arrive, he’ll be her fake date. But one evening isn’t enough. She’s a temptation he can’t resist.
She’s kind, trapped, and soon to be broke.
Her dad’s illness means Clara Rowe desperately needs to keep her job at the only veterinary clinic, owned by her ex’s father. If that means overtime and going to the wedding solo, so be it. Then gorgeous and arrogant Hedley Decker storms into her life with an offer of one night of pretense and pleasure that’s too good to be true.
They join forces to search for the lost dog’s owner, and their spark of attraction flares. He’s returning to his city life; she knows better than to risk her heart. How can they have forever love when they’re faking it, and time is running out?
