Jilting her wealthy, much older intended husband at the altar, Georgeanne Howard escapes with John Kowalsky, a rugged hockey player, only to be abandoned after a night of unbridled passion, and when they meet again seven years later, she introduces him to their daughter, and she must decide whether or not to trust his love.
Platinum Anniversary Edition of New York Times bestselling and RITA® Award-winning author Rachel Gibson’s Simply Irresistible!
Georgeanne Howard, charm school graduate and Southern belle extraordinaire, leaves her fiancé at the altar when she realizes she just can’t marry a man old enough to be her grandfather, no matter how rich he is. John Kowalsky unknowingly helps her escape, and only when it’s too late does he realize that he’s absconded with his boss’s bride. At the height of his hockey career, this bad boy isn’t looking to be anybody’s savior but his own, no matter how beautiful this angel may be. But a long night stretches ahead of them—a night too sultry to resist temptation.
When Georgeanne and John meet again, she is on her way to becoming Seattle’s domestic darling and he is past his hellraising ways. But he is shocked to learn that their single unforgettable night in paradise produced a daughter, and he is determined to be a part of her life. Georgeanne has loved John since the moment she jumped into his little red Corvette seven years ago, but she doesn’t want to risk her heart again. Is he really a changed man? And will he risk the wrath of his boss, and one final chance at glory, to prove that this time his love will be everlasting?
