Seven years ago, Matthew Logan ran out on his wedding to June Leigh.

When April discovers June has invited runaway groom Matthew Logan to the wedding, she has to intervene. Matthew’s presence will ruin everything – her father hates him, and just the sight of him in the church might give her mother a heart attack.

Matthew Logan has no intention of going to June’s wedding, but when intriguing April arrives on his doorstep, he can’t resist getting to know her better. When a disaster forces them together neither can deny the passion that combusts into a red-hot affair.

Discovering the truth about the past shifts April’s feelings from lust to love, but bitter experience has taught Matthew to guard his heart.

When it looks as though Matthew will lose her forever, will he fight or flee?

Excerpt


He swallowed. “You look great.”
“Thanks.” No smile. She slipped on the black velvet coat she was carrying and opened the front door.
He brushed past her and closed it. “Are you sulking?”
April crossed her arms. “I don’t appreciate your attitude.” The glare she fired at him would melt steel. “I worked very hard cleaning up your house. Sure, I made a mistake, but it was an easy one to make. If you talked to the housekeeper you were going to hire like that, she’d quit.”
“You’re overreacting.”
“No. I’m not. You treat your other employees with courtesy, why not me?”
“Just because I’m paying you doesn’t make you my employee.”
“Yes, it does.”
“No, dammit, it doesn’t.”
She was a lot more. She was someone who shared his home, someone he couldn’t resist the urge to kiss any longer. He stepped close, slipped an arm around her waist.
Her mouth opened on a shocked gasp.
“You’re a hell of a lot more than an employee.”
Her hands pressed against his chest. “Matthew...”
The moment he kissed her, everything changed. This was no casual brush of the lips like earlier out at the finish line. Her lips parted under his. Her hands snaked up to the back of his neck, fingers tangling in his hair as their mouths fused.
