Derrick Warren has lusted after Sydney Fields ever since he first spotted her, and, after months of intense phone conversations, he’s finally got the delectable redhead all to himself. All he has to do is let the old Warren magic do its thing…until an ex with an axe to grind shows up. Before he knows it, the perfect date ends with Sydney’s wine in his lap. Now she’s not taking his calls. To his utter shock, he realizes he’s going to have to work to win her over. Thanks to her mother’s bad example, Sydney is determined to never need a man. Just when she’s moved Derrick to her “loser” column though, she’s tricked into giving him another chance. To her surprise, he not only satisfies her deepest sexual fantasies, she finds herself actually craving his company. But when she realizes they’re making love, not just having sex, her old instincts kick in—because she’s starting to like the man, not just his body. And that, more than anything else, scares the hell out of her… Warning: Look out for a stubborn redhead who’s not afraid to throw her wine, her opinion, or her body at the annoyingly sexy architect determined to keep her for his own.
