going to be trickier than she thought. She has to persuade the owners to
sell—and one of them is Liam O’Donnell. Ten years ago, she made the biggest
mistake of her life when she married Liam during a fling in Vegas. Now he’s her

Liam just reminds her of the scorching few nights they spent together—and

“You’re a hotshot pitcher, you know. Don’t talk about that in the past tense.”
Liam blinked hard, then leaned in and pressed a slow kiss against her cheek. Half an inch, that’s how close he was to those soft, warm lips he remembered all too well, but no matter how much he ached to taste them again, he forced himself to pull back and smile down at her.

“I, uh . . .” Blowing out a hard breath, Liam shoved both hands through his hair, locked his fingers together, and took a step back. “I better go. It’d really screw things up here if we woke up married tomorrow.”
“Right. Good thinking,” she said, her mouth curling into a slow, knowing smile. “’Cause I promise you this, I won’t be nearly as nice the next time you divorce me.”
