From the author of By His Desire...

The last thing Kali Jones wants is to see Luke Tanner again. Once her high school nemesis, he's now one of Hollywood's hottest stars. Her boss thinks he's looking for a role on her new TV show, but Kali doesn't believe that's his real agenda.

Luke is in New York on a mission: to get closure from the woman who once broke his heart. And if he gets to rattle her cage along the way, that's just a bonus.

But when a game of truth or dare sparks a simmering attraction, everything changes. Now Luke is determined to make Kali admit her desire for him...and she's just as determined to deny it.

In their battle of wills, love is the last thing they expect to find--and the only game both of them can win.

His One Desire is a steamy romance novella of 24,000 words.


"I dare you to sit without moving or speaking for ten minutes."

Kali sat back in surprise. "That's it?" She thought about it for a moment. "I suppose that's your snide way of telling me I talk too much. Well, fine." She turned to face the speaker at the front of the room, her arms folded and a sour expression on her face.

Under the cover of the tablecloth, Luke put his hand on her thigh.

She jerked away in outrage, only just stopping herself from saying something out loud.

Did he think he could win the game that easily? Well, she was made of tougher stuff than he realized. She wasn't an innocent schoolgirl now, who could be overwhelmed by a simple touch.

His eyes met hers as he found her leg again.

The big hand circling her thigh was blatantly possessive. When she tried to pull away he gripped her harder, tighter.

And then, finally, she understood.

This was the dare. She had to sit here for ten minutes while he...what? Exactly how far was he planning to take this?

Luke seemed cool and detached, his blue eyes giving nothing away. His face had never looked more handsome or more remote.

Then his fingers moved again, softly, massaging the muscles just above her knee.

And one corner of his mouth rose half an inch.
