SOMETIMES THE BEST DEFENSE IS A STRONG OFFENSE
Bridal gown designer, Julianne Marchione knows
better than to lose her head at a client’s wedding.
But much to her embarrassment, a mix of migraine
medication and a smoking hot football player lead to
a steamy one night stand resulting in a surprise
pregnancy. Julianne has every intention of leaving
her NFL hookup far in the past until her son, Owen,
is born with a life-threatening blood disorder that
requires a transfusion—and Julianne is not a match.
Will “William the Conqueror” Connelly grew up
tough shouldering the stigma of being a bastard
child born on the wrong side of the tracks. He
refuses to let any child face the same discrimination.
When he finds out about Owen, he’s furious that
Julianne kept his son a secret. But when he sees her
again at the hospital, he realizes that his feelings for
her go far beyond anger.
Will insists that Owen recuperate at his home in
North Carolina, and he’s adamant that Julianne become his wife—even if it’s only a temporary marriage in name only. But will their simmering attraction ever lead to a real connection? Or are they just playing foolish games?
