The thrill of the chase!
Patrick Hazard had a plan of action that took Hester by surprise. She hadn't intended falling in love with anyone, but Patrick wasn't content just to be friends—he wined and dined Hester, pursued her and wooed her…whatever it took to win her over.
Secretly, Hester didn't need moonlight and roses to tell her that she and Patrick shared something special. As far as she was concerned, she was now spoken for—or had she spoken too soon? What was preventing Patrick from making that final proposal of marriage?
"This is an outrageously romantic place, Patrick."
"I know," he said smugly. "Why do you think I brought you here?"
She looked at him and laughed. "A softening-up process?"
"Yes," he said shamelessly. "I'm doing all I can to establish myself in your good books. And," he added, his voice deepening, "I'm somehow managing to keep at arm's length when you know perfectly well my instincts urge me otherwise. In the interests of truth I'm warning you—it's all a plan of campaign."
"Campaigns usually mean battles," she said thoughtfully. "What, exactly, do you intend to gain?"
"Victory," he said promptly, and took her in his arms and kissed her.
