Fiona Wheeler has built a career as a math tutor. Her resolve to remain professional is shaken when Aarón Gabriel looks at her that way. She’s attracted to the divorced man—he’s beyond sexy!—but it would be wildly inappropriate to date him. Then he asks her to dance…

With a busy law practice and a teenage daughter to raise, Aarón has no interest in dating. Then he sees Fiona, a gorgeous woman he wants in his arms. Will she let him lead her off the dance floor and into his bed?

“What? Oh, no, sweetie. Thanks.” He stared over Angie’s shoulder at a gorgeous woman. A gorgeous tall woman. A gorgeous, tall and very curvy woman. She clearly wasn’t the twenty-year-old math tutor. So who the hell was this—the mother of one of Angie’s friends?

He lifted his chin a fraction. “Aren’t you going to introduce us?” he prompted Angie.

“Hunh? You mean Fiona? Yeah, well, I guess I could.” Angie’s tone made it clear how silly this impromptu test of her manners was. “Dad, this is my new math tutor, Fiona Wheeler. This is my dad.”
