PLUS Rescuing Diana
In Linda Cajio’s smart and sexy romance, a bold architect challenges a beautiful, reclusive videogame designer to play for keeps.
It is Adam Roberts’s face that Diana Windsor needs—his gorgeous, rugged, perfect face. But persuading Adam to let her immortalize it in her latest videogame demands a little payback—a date. But for a self-styled computer nerd with zero experience in romance, Diana is stunned by her attraction to Adam, especially since he’s the brother of her biggest competitor. And when spies and sabotage intrude, Diana wonders if Adam’s silky touch and sweet words are after something more than her body.
Actually, Adam wants nothing more than to seduce Diana, but not for the reasons Diana has accused him of. Her sweet nature, her brilliance, and her guileless approach to life make her very vulnerable in a predatory world. He wants her, now . . . and forever. And he’ll put his best moves into showing her that in the game of love, everybody wins.
