But desire roared between them, and the innocent beauty granted Reese carte blanche with her body. Their earth-shattering night together stripped away every remnant of his reason -- and left a ferocious longing. What would the irresistible bachelor do when the bet expired? Round up those cards...or lay down a marriage proposal?
