These Arms of Mine


When Alesha Robinson ended her torrid affair with Derrick Chandler, she gave up the love of her life. Now fate's giving them a second chance. But when Alesha asks Derrick to save her brother, she never dreams what the scorned multimillionaire will demand in exchange: becoming his wife--in name only.

Even after Alesha shattered his trust, Derrick never stopped loving her. His strings-attached proposition was supposed to be strictly business: revenge for her cruel betrayal as he rebuilds his public image. Until desire reignites--hotter than ever.

As the ex-lovers give in to their passion, a marriage of convenience is about to become inconvenient. And Derrick realizes just how far he'll go to keep Alesha in his bed, in his arms, in his heart--forever.

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    Derrick Chandler stared in exasperation at the man sitting across from him. Why did campaign managers always have to try to change your life? He listened in annoyance as Cameron Stewart continued to tell him what he must do in order to win the Senate race, which he had recently entered.

    He wondered why he hadn't just stuck to corporate law instead of throwing his hat into the political arena. He decided the main reason was the city in which he resided--if you were a successful lawyer and lived in Washington, D.C., it seemed predestined that a foray into the world of politics would occur at some time or another.

    Fingers absently tapped his chocolate-colored, cleanshaven chin impatiently and then brushed a piece of lint off the breast pocket of his immaculate navy blue suit. After Cameron talked until he was satisfied, then Derrick would have his say--the other man in the room would not be pleased with what he would hear. He disliked anyone telling him what he should and should not do, and Cam was treading on dangerous ground.

    "Derrick, the simple fact is that you need a wife." Cam succinctly summed up his ten-minute tirade.

    Derrick bolted upright in his chair, his gray eyes growing hard and cold. His voice matched his angry countenance. "And you need a psychiatrist."

    Cam sighed audibly, not in the least put off by his friend's frigid tone. "Just listen to me..."

    "No, you listen to me." Derrick held up a hand forestalling his friend's words. "I tried the marriage scene once, and we both know what a fiasco that was."

    "Well, I told you before you married her."

    Derrick's darkening eyes stopped Cam cold. "You're treading on dangerous ground, Cameron."

    "I know, Derrick, but just hear me out." He quickly continued before his friend could object, "You hired me to increase your chances of being elected and, whether you like it or not, I've got to tell you what I think."

    "Well, I don't like it, but if you want to hear yourself talk, be my guest."

    He scratched his lightly bearded chin. "We're doing great in all demographics except for women."

    Derrick frowned. "I thought our numbers looked pretty good there."

    "Pretty good, but if you had a woman in your life, one who could relate with and talk to other women, one on one, about their concerns, I have no doubt our numbers would double."

    "Wouldn't a female member of my staff work?"

    "Please!" Cam's look of disgust elicited a chuckle. "Man, this is America--the land of opportunity, the home of apple pie and baseball."

    Derrick rolled his eyes. "This sure sounds like a commercial."

    "With the election a little over a year away, now is the perfect time for you to be seen as someone who has deep ties to the community, someone who has something in common with his constituents, someone who shares their dreams and hopes. The best way to identify with them is to be seen as a family man."

    "You're not married."

    "I'm not running for public office, either." Cam folded his arms across his chest. "You are and you need someone, and not just any woman--a wife. Just think about it, a built-in hostess for parties and a date ready and willing to go with you whenever and wherever. I know I'm getting through to you." Cam carefully studied Derrick's purposefully unreadable expression.

    "Wouldn't a German shepherd accomplish the same thing as a wife?" Derrick smiled slightly.

    Cam closed his eyes in frustration before quickly opening them...
