Self-made millionaire Jeremy Bridges is a love'em and leave'em type of guy. Being rich and handsome allows him his pick of just about any woman he wants, but he only wants them for one night. His exploits have really gotten on his bodyguard's, Bernadette Hogan's, nerves. After disregarding her warning that one of his blonde "groupies" looked to be trouble, he put his and her life in danger. Fed up, she quit her job, but Jeremy wasn't going to let her go, and in a heated moment that took both of them by surprise, the two end up having a one night stand. Only thing is, one night just might not be enough.
I was laughing quite a bit with this one. The snarky comments made by Bernie had me grinning. The way Bernie found out she was pregnant was fun. I liked the slow, but gradual realization by the two main characters that they loved each other. Jeremy's story of how he made his fortune and became such a loner added some extra depth to the story. You can't help but wonder what makes a person so emotionally guarded. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I gave it 3 out of 5 roses.
