Businessman Derek Reeves is the last bachelor in his family. His brother has just married interior designer Candice Hammond's business partner, and everyone has seen the sparks fly between Candice and Derek as she's been planning the renovation of his restaurant. The sparks become flames when they're locked in the place together. But neither Derek nor Candice has any intention of becoming seriously involved, because business and pleasure don't mix and they're just too different. Aren't they? Barbara Dunlop's newest, High Stakes (4), is smart and spicy. Candice is lots of fun, and Derek's a hero to die for.
