Full-figured, lushly endowed, and nothing like the sylphlike beauties currently in vogue, naïve Caroline Torrington can't imagine any man being physically attracted to her. So when her childhood friend Lucas Foxhaven suggests a temporary, celibate marriage of convenience in order to ensure his inheritance and secure her and her sisters' futures, she agrees. But Lucas is anything but repelled by Caro's ample curves. As the sexual tension flares between them, it takes all of his resolve to honor their agreement-an action that Caro, not unexpectedly, interprets as rejection. Misunderstandings nearly doom their relationship, until a treacherous kidnapping opens Caro's eyes and jolts Lucas into action. Though readers may be impatient with the couple's lack of communication, they will root for them to get it right and cheer when the villains get their much-deserved comeuppance. Greed, jealousy, and deceit underlie the plot of this sexy, occasionally violent adventure that is one of the launches for Casablanca's new romance fiction line. Young (Pistols at Dawn) lives in Ontario.
