From New York Times best-selling author Thea Harrison comes a vintage contemporary romance, as originally published under the pen name Amanda Carpenter in 1992.
Nikki Ashton was running for her life when she, quite literally, ran into the strong, unyielding arms of businessman Harper Beaumont. Frightened, injured, and desperate, Nikki was the picture of a damsel in distress, and Harper stepped effortlessly into the role of white knight, getting her to safety and securing medical treatment for her injuries.
Their impromptu meeting leads to Harper offering Nikki the biggest opportunity of her career—an opportunity she cannot refuse. But Harper seems determined to view Nikki as a helpless girl in need of his protection. Can she convince him she's a strong, independent woman, more than capable of matching his own passionate nature?
