Courting ClaudiaeBook - 2007
After a lifetime of chafing under her domineering father's high expectations, Claudia Prattley is determined to finally please him by marrying the man of his choosing, but a dashing rogue is hell bent on foiling her plans. Derrick Middleton hides a heart wounded by betrayals, but he's drawn to Claudia's enchanting combination of passion and trust--not to mention her artistic talent. Simmering beneath their light--hearted banter, desires stir that grow more irresistible with every encounter. And the more they explore the sensuality that ignites between them, the more she challenges his cynical belief that love is not for him. But when her loyalties to her father threaten their newfound trust, they must risk everything to claim the love that will heal their hearts.
