Danni Price is climbing the corporate ladder by working hard, trying difficult cases, and winning. She doesn’t have time to fraternize with the enemy. And Michael Sommers is most definitely the enemy.
Unfortunately for her, when Michael outbid everyone for the steak dinner date with her at the Literacy Foundation Auction, she had no choice but to go. The week before, she’d won the biggest case of her career against Michael’s father, and now she was forced into a date with his son. Danni saw the bid as a way of revenge.
Michael, a third generation attorney, however, saw a beautiful woman with intelligence and wit. All he wanted was the steak dinner, a little company, and to donate some funds to a good cause.
When the two realize they are the opposing in one of the biggest custody battles in the state, they become both rivals and allies. The problem is that romance is inadmissible, and in the end what really matters is who gets custody of their hearts.
Tessa Price has a lot on her plate. Her job as a teacher fills her time, her best friend’s husband keeps trying to set her up on dates she’s not interested in, and she is her sister’s pets for two weeks. Tessa doesn’t mind Lilly, a lovely, well-behaved dog, but the other pet, a menace of a potbellied pig named Joey, keeps breaking out of her yard and eating the prize-winning flowers of her cantankerous neighbor.
The neighbor, in an effort to handle Tessa and her destructive pig, enlists his son, Brian Miller. Brian has a hectic job that keeps him traveling for weeks at a time. He loves his busy schedule and has no plans to settle down. Nothing could change his mind about his work or his carefree lifestyle.
However, that was before he met Tessa and Joey. Although the flower eating has his father in an uproar, Brian can’t seem to muster a serious attitude about it. After all, it’s just a few flowers. Not to mention the fact that the intriguing schoolteacher happens to be beautiful as well as intelligent.
Tessa has her life the way she wants it. When she and Brian become close, Tessa aches with hopes and dreams that can’t be realized in a different city every few weeks. Unfortunately, Brian’s life demands time on the road.
But when Joey suddenly disappears, Brian realizes what’s important. It isn’t a job that gives him happiness; it’s a beautiful blond with a pig.
