Someone Irresistible – Adele Ashworth
Mimi is the daughter of a talented scientific sculptor, and she shares her father’s ability to take giant bones dug from the earth and create models of them for scientists to study and others to marvel over. Nathan is one of that fascinating new breed of scholars, a paleontologist. On the night he was to unveil his great discovery, and take his place among the scientific elite, his wondrous specimen vanished, leaving him a laughingstock. It’s been three long years since then, and Nathan is finally ready to take steps to restore his reputation. His theory is that Mimi stole his astounding find, and he blackmails her into using her talents to set in motion a series of events that should lead him to the missing bones and expose the theft. There’s only one thing wrong with his plan — Mimi wasn’t the thief, and his willingness to forgive her for a crime she didn’t commit riles her even more than his false accusations. But, as they work together to uncover the truth, the totally unscientific attraction between them soon has their heads and hearts spinning as they explore the astonishing depth of passion that they share.
