Rose Granger had preferred life in Waterville before Stefan Donatien began to call it home. Now the restaurateur turned up in her paint store, her kitchen, her every thought-some of them blazing hot.But she doused her fiery, forbidden thoughts. For the big-city businessman could never be satisfied with the serene beauty of small-town life and the woman who matched it perfectly....Stefan had never burned so fiercely for any woman...fate had singled out Rose as his. And with every penetrating kiss, he felt her resistance dwindle-and her sensuality soar. Now it was only a matter of time, and exquisite loving, before Rose surrendered to the ultimate truth-that their union was inevitable...and everlasting!
