A Gentleman's Offer by Kristi Hancock
After Lanie's "day from hell," David is ready for the role of her Prince Charming, faux boyfriend, and real lover...if she's brave enough to play the part. Get your New York groove on with two strangers on business trips who take a sexy tour of Midtown Manhattan where David unearths the exhibitionist streak Lanie never knew she had in one night neither will ever forget. More... Lanie Hartsell is having the day from hell after her boss broke his word along with her spirit. Months of personal sacrifice and dedication to her work have resulted in an escalating sexual drought she tries to ignore, only to discover it was all for nothing. Arranging to lick her wounds and sip a glass of wine at a table for one, she has a nuclear meltdown when the trattoria’s host denies her the slice of sanctuary she reserved. David Rafaeli drops by his cousins’ restaurant as he always does when he’s in Manhattan on business—-only there is nothing normal about the ruckus in the lobby. It defies his nature not to defuse the situation, so the handsome stranger develops a plot to solve the sexy businesswoman’s dilemma—-with him in the guise of her boyfriend. David makes a cryptic offer to share his table with Lanie, but only if she’ll play the role of his date. As she makes conversation above the table, her body language gets aggressive beneath it. After he orders cannoli for two, she reveals a newly discovered exhibitionist streak when she devours their dessert. As they tour the city at night, David struggles to behave like a gentleman though Lanie destroys him with her obvious desires. Can one night with a stranger fix this workaholic's sexual frustration?
