Nella Covington can't believe she's agreed to marry the arrogant Samuel L. du Cannon, even if it's only a marriage of convenience. He needs a mother for his small son, and she needs to keep her beloved childhood home. Will she be able to stand his egotistical attitude? His domineering manner?
But Jake is such a darling little boy! And he's already captured her heart. What does she have to lose? If Sam's work keeps him on the road enough, she won't have to deal with him much at all. Maybe this just might work.
All Sam du Cannon wants is a good mom for his son. He's had it with women. Doesn't ever plan to get involved with another woman again. That makes Nella perfect for him. He's never been overly attracted to plus-size women, so if Nella agrees to marry him, he won't have to worry about being tempted to have a relationship with her. At least, that's what he keeps telling himself.
As they lay exhausted from making love, Sam said, "You are, without a doubt, the most passionate woman I have ever known. And you turn me on more than any woman ever has." Not knowing what to say, Nella just reached up and lightly kissed him. "You ain't seen nothing yet," she whispered her promise.
