Summary: Lucy Williams is a confident, self-assured college student. She doesn’t have a man and she doesn’t need one. But when she meets her room-mate’s father, Richard, her world is turned upside down. He’s everything she wants in a man: collected, confident. Gorgeous. And when she’s invited to a party to celebrate his wedding anniversary, there’s more than congratulations on Lucy’s mind. But does Richard feel the same way? Will Lucy’s steamy fantasies come true?
Lucy’s words trailed off as her eyes settled on Melissa’s father. Strong jaw, blue eyes, black hair with a sprinkling of gray at the temples. Stuffy old fart? Not a bit of it. This man was lithe, athletic, toned. And utterly gorgeous.
“You all right?” Melissa asked.
Lucy jumped. “What? Yes. I mean, very pleased to meet you.”
Richard glided forward and held out his hand. “So you’re the room-mate we’ve been told so much about?”
“Um, that’s me. All good I hope?” Lucy replied, shaking his hand.
As Richard curled his fingers around hers, a tingle passed up Lucy’s arm. She found herself staring into his eyes. They were the deepest blue she’d ever seen.
“All good, I promise.”
His voice was low, husky. Arousal flashed through Lucy’s abdomen and her nipples tightened. How would it feel to have those strong fingers caressing her body? Flustered, she dropped Richard’s hand and turned back to the coffees.
