ONE NIGHT WITH HIS RIVAL – Robyn Grady
About That Night… # 2
Harlequin Desire #2723
Contemporary Series Romance
Connecticut & Barbados – Present Day
All of their lives, Ajax Rawson and Veda Darnel have only heard about how much their fathers hate each other. It has a little to do with the fact the families are horse breeding rivals, but it is mainly because Ajax's father “stole” the woman who Veda's father loved. Despite the family rivalry, Veda has become friends with Ajax's sister, but it's Ajax that she has had a secret crush on. Then, one night, they run into one another and end up spending the night together. The next morning, Veda informs Ajax that one night is all they can have together due to their fathers hating each other. But he isn't about to give up…
Running the horse breeding ranch is what Ajax loves, but he has to contend with his father's continual interference. He finds Veda attractive—and wants her—but the rivalry between the fathers make it tough for them to pursue things. Yet, Ajax can't stop wanting her, and he soon has her in his bed again. However, a racing scandal soon has them at loggerheads again.
It should have only been ONE NIGHT WITH HIS RIVAL, but they can't get enough of each other. Veda became a self-help guru after experiencing problems from coping with dyslexia. In fact, she gets panic attacks from time to time. Even as she is attracted to Ajax, she knows that he is wrong for her. After all, his rich playboy reputation isn't for nothing. Yet, that one night she finally gave in to the mutual desire between them. If her father finds out, he will be unhappy—and that is one thing Veda doesn't want to happen because her relationship with him is already tenuous. He is the only family she has. But Ajax is persistent, and when she ends up crashing her car near his house, it's only inevitable that he helps her—and they end up in bed again.
Ajax is admittedly puzzled by his attraction to Veda. Not because he doesn't find her desirable, it's just that he hasn't wanted someone so much before. His father is courteous to Veda at first, but after the racing scandal intertwines the two families, she becomes unwelcome. Should Ajax walk away from Veda? But like an alcoholic with one drink, he can't help but have more again…and again. Can the mess that has cropped up between them be resolved so that they can find out if there's a future together?
A sizzling hot tale of a blooming romance between the offspring of horse breeding rivals, readers will surely be rooting for Ajax and Veda to find a happily-ever-after. Don't miss ONE NIGHT WITH HIS RIVAL.
