Bridal gown designer Julianne Marchione knows better than to lose her head at a client’s wedding. But a mix of migraine medication and a smoking hot football player lead to a steamy one night stand resulting in a surprise pregnancy. Julianne has every intention of forgetting her NFL hookup until her son, Owen, is born with a life-threatening blood disorder that requires a transfusion—and Julianne is not a match.
Will Connelly grew up tough, shouldering the stigma of being a bastard child born on the wrong side of the tracks. When he finds out about Owen, he’s furious that Julianne kept his son a secret. But when he sees her again at the hospital, he realizes that his feelings for her go far beyond anger.
Will insists that Owen recuperate at his home, and he’s adamant that Julianne become his wife—even if it’s only a temporary marriage in name only. But will their simmering attraction ever lead to a real connection? Or are they just playing foolish games?
