Kelsie Connors groaned! It was bad enough thaty she'd picked up the wrong briefcase - the one filled with slinky lingerie she sold at home parties - but now the chimp she had brought to audition for a big TV campaign was destroying advertising executive Alexander McKnight's office, & redecorating it in black lace & garter belts! She was sure she'd never get the account...until Alec's slow, devastating smile, & his voice like satin sheets, made her blush, made her wonder - & made her want to be wanted by a man for the first time since her divorce. But raising 2 kids, volunteering for charities & running a business left no time for dating, especially whe she'd forgotten how - until Alec charmed her, bulldozed her, & when that failed, brought a cleaning lady to do her chores! Tantalized by his touch, Kelsie adored being courted, rescued & ravished, but there weren't enough hours for it all. Could she learn to fill her calendar with what really counted; precious time with the man she loved?
