Two wounded-in-love go-getters must decide if they’ll break their personal rule that cost them so much in the past by mixing business with pleasure.
Divorcée Bebe Boshey flees her Ojibway community for the city of Thunder Bay to begin anew, landing a great job that affords her an independent lifestyle she covets and a great condo. Best of all, her silver fox boss thinks the world of her. She can’t help her attraction to him, but office dating is a huge no-no.
Divorcé Alden Campbell is tired of spending his nights alone. And he’s also quite uncomfortable about his feelings for his ace real estate agent, Bebe. Even though they are strictly professional in their daily dealings, the sizzling chemistry ready to boil over between them is enough to shake him with fear, because he’s been there and done that.
While they’re on a business trip together, a crafty playboy pushes Alden into making a big decision that might cost him dearly—pursue Bebe and break his rule of business-only, or let Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome work his charm on the one woman Alden wants to call his own.
Alden’s chest kept pinching. He had a big decision to make. And his number one real estate agent never stopped dropping hints about attending the conference with him. But his gut continued to side in Bebe’s favor, even if she was only three years into the job.
He picked up his mug of steaming coffee and sipped. The purpose of the trip was to network and attend the many skill-building workshops. This would suit Bebe. She was inching closer to Morgan every month in sales. More than sales. Her reputation as a top agent was making its way—besides in Thunder Bay—through the eastern half of the district they covered. And Morgan’s forte was industry and business, while Bebe’s was residential.
Alden’s decision wasn’t biased, either. It had nothing to do with Bebe’s too-long legs, her suggestive bangs falling over one perfectly groomed eyebrow, dark-brown hair cascading in casual, loose waves down her back, or her deep-throated voice that was a take-charge challenge to his own forceful tone. Bebe deserved to be chosen for her skills and abilities, and that was why he wanted her to accompany him to the conference in Sault Saint Marie.
Alden stood. He’d talk to Morgan first and then tell Bebe the good news.
