She never meant to stay forever.
Just out of college, Penelope Stewart takes a summer job as an office temp, with plans to go to med school in the fall. She thinks she has her future all mapped out - until she lays eyes on the man who signs her weekly time sheets.
David Powers has a way of making women change their plans. Dripping with money and charm, he has a list of former flames that reads like a society gossip column. But David also has his rules, and dating office secretaries falls strictly out of bounds. Not even pretty blond ones with sassy mouths who inexplicably keep renewing their temp gigs every week....
Now, two years later, Penny's still temping for a mysterious reason that she won't explain to her friends. What started as an innocent office flirtation has deepened further than either Penny or David would care to admit. Things change when Penny overhears lewd gossip about herself from coworkers. She quits abruptly, but she can't move past her memories of the man who haunts her every waking thought. David is left with a choice: let her walk away or set aside his rules and track her down.
