My turn again.  This is an old Harlequin---maybe a Presents. I think they were the white ones back in the 80's, with the circular picture, right?  The girl is either dating or just friends with a boy, and he takes her and some friends to his house.  The girl ends up falling for his father, though he initially thinks she's loose like most girls her age and is just using his son.  IIRC, the father's name is Piers.  I want to say the author was one of the more popular/prolific authors in that series, like Emma Darcy, but I am pretty sure she's not the authors.   Does this sound familiar to anyone?

it sounds like a Carole Mortimer or a Penny Jordan.

 

Mortimer has quite a few where she falls for the much older man of a BF or friend.

 

Penny jordan wrote a book or two like that also

Excellent call, Jess!  I did a search for Carole Mortimer and "Piers" and found the book.  It's "The Passionate Winter".  Am now going to see if anyone here has it on their shelf.  Thanks so much!!
