Just one night... That was all Holly Fitzgerald would
allow herself with the tall, dark and brooding CFO Joe
Barone. Winning Baronessa Gelati's contest paled next to
what she felt when the aloof Joe watched her with sexual
desire blatant in his shrewd eyes.
While Holly had commitments, Joe had sophistication and
wealth. He looked better in a business suit than any man
had a right to. But his lover's touch freed her, and for
the first time made her want something more. Like
Cinderella, she'd forget the real world, forget caution
and for once, she'd simply enjoy the fantasy. But as the
clock neared twelve, Holly knew one night with Joe
wouldn't be enough....
