From the Inside Flap

"Ready?" She glanced at him. He looked rugged, sexy, and unhurried. It was an effort for her to take her eyes off him and focus on the road ahead. As they set off, he seemed to be in a great mood.

"I'm looking forward to this, Nadine. I have to admit."

She could feel him looking at her from the side and she didn't like this disadvantage one bit. She would have to keep her eyes on the road ahead yet he would be free to look at her. He was doing so already. She hoped the new Estee Lauder eye wrinkle cream would work its magic. She also thanked her lucky stars that he was getting her best side profile.
It was almost a two-hour drive to the Stormont and she didn't plan to stop off anywhere for a break. She wanted to be there for five, which would give them an hour or more before meeting everyone for introductions in the lounge for cocktails.

"So tell me again, why is this a very important event for you?" He looked at her for the longest time. "Who is it that I need to impress?"
She laughed out loud at this, and then looked at him. His now bright blue eyes pierced through her. Her eyes fell to his strong jawline before she reminded herself to keep her eyes on the road.

"You don't need to impress anyone. I do. You just need to look good. We're supposed to be in a balanced, loving, and healthy relationship."

"Is that so?" He paused thoughtfully. "We'll need to get some chemistry going then." He placed his arm lazily on the car door.
Nadine carried on, wondering which facts he needed to be most aware of. "Sandra Donnelly is my boss. She's a coldhearted, unpleasant woman--"

Before she could finish, Ethan interrupted her. "Basically, she's a bitch."

"Yes. You could say that."

"Older than you and worried that you're better?" he asked nonchalantly.

"Perhaps. She's been dumping a lot of her work on me, ever since I got this promotion."

"So what are you now? What's your job title?"

"My title?" She glanced at him, wondering why he needed to know every little detail.

"You're more than a secretary, am I right?"

"I'm an executive creative director."

Ethan whistled. "Whoa! I'm with the head honcho?"

She turned to him and saw that he didn't seem all that surprised, even though he made out he was.

"Sandra is the head honcho above me, and the guy we're both out to impress is Michael Zimmerman. He's the one who owns the company."

"I had you figured for a smart woman right from the beginning, Nadine. It doesn't surprise me one bit that you are where you are. What does surprise me is that you're still single."

He brought the conversation around to that whole relationship topic again.
What should she tell him, that she had always focused on her career? That she had met and dated someone who she thought was the one but she broke off the engagement because she woke up one day and realized he wasn't? That since then she had dedicated herself to working her way up the career ladder and that men and children were the last thing on her mind?

"Ethan, I don't have time for relationships. That's why I hired you to pretend to be my boyfriend." Wanting to put an end to that line of questioning, she closed her lips firmly together.

"You know, you shouldn't purse your lips together like that. It'll make your nasolabial folds more pronounced."

"You're not gay, are you?" she shot back. He was jesting with her but he had picked something that was a sensitive topic for her. It annoyed her that he was picking on her. Normally she wouldn't have given a hoot. But this was Ethan, and she wanted to know that he found her appealing.

"A hot-blooded man like me? You're kidding me, right?"

Unable to find more words to shoot at him, she shot him a dirty look instead.
"Are you always so nice to the women you wine and dine?" she asked finally.

"I can't tell you about the women I wine and dine. That's strictly top secret information, I'm afraid."

For a minute she believed him, until he burst out laughing at her naiveté.
