Madison has scores of male admirers, but she only wants one man: Rafe. And Rafe wishes she were dead. After all, she was driving the car in an accident that almost killed his sister Fiona. Rafe believes that Maddy is a self-centered, irresponsible, mouthy slut who has sex with every man she meets, and he is horrified when Fiona tells him she's coming to stay at his stud ranch. Little does he know that she was chased away from the commune she recently called home by a stalker. With only an unloving, devil-may-care mother for family, Maddy has been forced from childhood to live by her wits. Now she has one goal: to convince Rafe, her secret crush, to make love to her. She doesn't hold out much hope of success, considering the black cloud that has hung over her life, not to mention Rafe's obvious contempt for her.
One night only. That's all she asks.

Read an Excerpt
Madison admired the large, L-shaped bathroom. It was tastefully decorated in shades of dark russet and palest green. She wondered if Rafe had designed it, but her money was on Fiona. The shower was snuggled at the end, hidden from sight. Unhooking Raymond, she left him to sniff around the strange room.
Flicking the switch, she stripped off, leaving her clothes in a pile on the floor. Madison stepped inside, luxuriating in the hot spray, the feel of the hot water spilling over her upturned face. She examined the various shower gels, massaging the suds into her glistening body. Her fingers slid across the scars that covered her stomach. The slight dent of the one that had almost killed her.
Cautiously, she let the water cascade over her head, gently washing it. Flicking the tap off, she pulled the doors open. Madison stepped out onto the cool tiled floor, and in a leisurely fashion, wiped her body dry. Wrapping her long hair up into the towel, she twisted it around her head in the shape of a turban.
"Will you be quiet?" Madison wondered why she bothered. He never listened, anyway.
She padded naked around the corner then stopped. She stared in horror at the sight of Rafe standing at the door.
For what seemed an eternity she stood poised, wondering if she'd conjured him up. She closed her eyes briefly then opened them again.
He was still there. He hadn't moved. His gaze, hot and smouldering, burnt over her.
Finally she galvanised her legs into action and ran back around the corner, yelling, "Get out of here!" She was embarrassed that he'd caught her naked. Worse, he'd seen her scars. Shit. She wouldn't have a hope in hell of getting him into bed now. "And don't let the dog out!" she added, suddenly remembering Raymond.
Rafe looked at the dog, and grasping the handle, backed slowly out of the bathroom. His mind was full of her luscious body, how she'd looked. He'd drunk his fill, knowing now why he wanted her so much. He could feel himself hardening at the thought of sinking between her legs into her depths, hot and wet.
Then he frowned, wondering how she'd come by those scars across the base of her stomach.
He made a mental note to ask Fiona, although he wasn't sure yet how he was going to explain how he'd seen them.
