GRIFF MONTGOMERY, QUARTERBACK
He wanted a wife. She didn’t want to get married – ever. Not exactly a match made in heaven. Ten years ago, Griff Montgomery, star quarterback of the Kings and womanizer, became a stand-in father for his widowed sister’s kids. After they moved away, Griff wanted his own family. But where does a “player” go to find his ideal mate?
Having sworn off marriage forever, Lauren Farraday barely kept her life together after her divorce. With her career shaky and depression closing in, the last thing she needed was a courtroom battle with a sexy athlete.
Wary of Griff’s reputation with women, and hiding a secret, Lauren holds on to her heart. Can the quarterback handle the truth or will he walk away, like he has in the past?
SNIPPETS“Yeah. Forget it. Doesn’t matter what I think of you, anyway.” She opened the back door and bent over to fasten Spike’s leash into the seatbelt.
She squared her shoulders, put her hands on her hips, and faced him. “Let’s get this straight. We hate each other…”
“Hate is a strong word.”
“Well, yeah, maybe.”
“We’re in the middle of a custody battle. Don’t be a jerk. I know what you think of me.”
“You telling me we’re best friends?”
“No, but we don’t have to be mortal enemies, either. We both like Spike. Can we be civil?”
“Civil? To a man who’s trying to take my dog away? He’s my life. And you want me to be happy about it?”
“Your life? That’s too bad.” He looked her over, his gaze taking in all her luscious curves. “A woman
"who looks like you should have more going for her than that.”
“I like having him around.” Griff increased his pace to a fast walk.
Trunk snickered. “In bed with a dog? You’re slipping.”
“He’s better looking than anything you’ve slept with.”
“Are you referring to my wife?” Trunk’s tone turned belligerent.
“Oh, you’re married? Gee, I didn’t think so when we were in Miami, San Francisco, and Dallas last year,” Griff shot back.
