From the introduction page:
"I'm carrying your child."
"This is ridiculous," he said. "We've never even had sex. The only time we came anywhere near close was at the Gold Coast, and you threw me out of your room before I had hardly a chance to kiss you. Remember? So if you're pregnant from that time, someone else must be the father."
"You really must have a pretty low opinion of me if you think I'm capable of falling into bed with any guy who crosses my path."
"Well..."He pointedly gazed at her lower abdomen. "Given your condition, you've obviously fallen into bed with somebody."
"Maybe not," she said, a smile emerging at her lips for the first time in their conversation. "Who said this baby had anything to do with bed?!
"What the hell is that supposed to mean?"
She looked right at him, desperate to take the smug look off his face. "The office Christmas party. Tell me, exactly how many women DID you make love to in the boardroom that night?"
