After waiting in the dark hotel room for her fiancé and then spending the most wonderful, passionate night of her life in his arms, the misgivings Brianne has been having about the wedding are disspelled. That is, until she wakes in the morning and discovers a mix up with the room keys has brought a stranger to her bed instead.
Jake is just as shocked as Brianne when he realizes he made love to the wrong woman, but that doesn't keep him from conspiring to have her again or from trying to win her heart.
Excerpt from In The Arms of a Stranger:
She propped herself on one elbow, acutely aware of the man sleeping in the bed behind her. “I’m not mad, Daddy,” she managed to squeak out. “I think I just misunderstood what you said. Chad checked in last night, right?”
“My, you are sleepy aren’t you, little girl? No, he can’t get a flight out of Chicago until later this morning. He should be here late this afternoon.”
Bri squeezed her eyes shut. No, no, no, Chad was here. He must have woken up early and called her Dad to convince him the plane had been delayed so her parents wouldn’t suspect he’d spent most of the night making love to her. Her Dad was wrong, she adamantly told herself. She was panicking for nothing. She would hang up, turn on the light and find her fiancé lying behind her and then laugh herself silly for thinking she had taken a complete stranger into her bed. With a hasty good-bye and the promise to meet them for lunch, Bri hung up the phone.
For several minutes she remained frozen until the strain on her nerves was simply too much. He didn’t move when she flipped on the light, nor did he utter a single word. All the same, she knew he was awake. Holding her breath, Brianne shifted her weight and turned to face him. Dark hair, eyes as black as midnight, and a cocky grin that was far from contrite greeted her startled gaze.
