Description

As an accomplished architect, single dad of teenage twin girls, and co-owner of The Playground, Raleigh's hottest jazz and blues club, it's an understatement to say Malcolm Cobb has his hands full. Add to that an ex-wife who knows how to bring the drama, it's no surprise he has little time or inclination for a personal life. But when he spots stunning, voluptuous Cilla Jameson, he's suddenly considering rearranging his schedule and setting aside his concerns. . . Independent and successful, Cilla would love to be in love. But when it comes to men, she has a lengthy list of requirements. And "no children" is at the top. Yet she can't help being intrigued by Malcolm. He's handsome, fascinating, respectful--and up for a challenge. But is Cilla? After all, the man has baggage--and it is fully packed. Can she handle the ex who's determined to keep him single? Or the twins who are not quite the angels Malcolm thinks? She'll have to decide, if she wants to play for keeps. . .
