He’s been naughty and she’s been nice…until now.
Anna Gardner allows herself exactly one night per year to let her hair down—the annual office Christmas party. But for the second year in a row, she’s made out with Hugh Munro, super-sexy advertising exec and playboy extraordinaire. Now that the party is over, Anna has to return to her real life—a life too full of responsibilities and worry to include temptations like Hugh.
Hugh has other ideas. He hasn’t forgotten last year’s scorching-hot kiss, and last night only strengthened his resolve to make Anna his. Except, Hugh doesn’t do serious relationships. When he learns the truth about Anna’s life, he realizes that “casual” is the last thing she needs. And if all he wants for Christmas is Anna, he’ll have to prove it…to both of them.
