The lie drew her in…

Raine, a shy professor, had no defense against Cotter Hunt, a wealthy womanizer. After a mistake in his arms, she vows to go about her work and ignore him with all her heart and soul. It's too bad that her anthropology class will be conducting a scientific study at his seaside mansion for a whole month! And it isn't just Cotter's sexual power she must deal with. There is the attempted break-in—is treachery afoot?

The handsome investigative cop makes a play for Raine; meanwhile, Cotter glowers at her in the light of day, drawing her into his bed after dark. Raine's weakness for Cotter terrifies her. She is falling in love with a man who uses women and tosses them away like garbage. Why can't she feel deep affection for her sweet, undemanding cop? Before the month is over, her life will be forever changed. Will it be for better—or for worse?
