He could have any woman he wanted. But for some reason, he wants me…
Mack Hart is 28. He has a doctorate in Computer Engineering. He possesses an IQ of 172. And he has a bank balance containing nine zeroes.
I’m Sidnie Beaver (and don’t think I haven’t heard all the jokes before.) I’m 22. I have trouble tying my shoelaces some days. And my bank balance is permanently, dangerously in the red.
His research is so important that his rival will pay big money for it, and I desperately need some of that cash. When Mack demands I come to his office, I’m convinced it’s because he’s caught me on security camera taking photos of his files when I should have been cleaning.
Instead, he seems more interested in the piece of paper I accidentally dropped the night before. It contains a rather steamy poem I wrote about my perfect fantasy man. I’m sure he thinks it’s about him, which isn’t surprising considering how accurately he fits the bill.
Mortified, I explain that I write romance, but that it’s just a hobby, and I don’t have much experience in the real world. I wait for him to show me the door. Instead, he asks me to be his date at a party that evening.
Terrified that he’s going to discover my secret, I try to turn him down. But Mack Hart is a man used to getting his own way.
Never fall in love with your knight in shining armor…
Even though he can’t step foot out of his house, Noah King’s sole purpose in life is to help people.
He created the Ark as a sanctuary for animals and people alike, and it’s not surprising that when I’m at my lowest ebb, he’s the one who rides in on his white horse and rescues me.
But now I’m in a terrible dilemma.
Since his wife died giving birth to their baby – who also died – Noah’s been a recluse.
The last thing he needs in his life is a woman who’s eight months’ pregnant, alone, and homeless.
Of course he’s going to want to help me.
I know I mustn’t mistake kindness and friendship for real love.
And I really don’t want to be one of life’s victims.
I want to get myself back on my feet and create a good life for the baby.
I don’t want to cause Noah pain by stirring up old memories. And I don’t want him to feel pity for me.
I know I should walk away.
But it’s strange how it’s only when someone shows you kindness that you realize how empty your life has been.
Oh God. I’m desperately in love with him. And now the baby is days away from coming, and I’ve literally nowhere to go.
What am I going to do?
