The Temporary Mrs. King

Description : The Temporary Mrs. King

Sean King choked on his sip of beer. Slamming the icy bottle down onto the polished teak bar, he coughed until tears filled his eyes. He was forced to blink them away to see the woman who had nearly killed him with six little words.

Finally lifting his gaze to hers, he gave her a half smile and said, “Married? Don’t you think we should have dinner first?”

Her lips twitched briefly, then she shot a look at the bartender, as if assuring herself he was far enough away to not overhear her. “I know how strange that sounded.?…”

She blew out an exasperated breath. “You’re Sean King. You’re here to meet with Walter Stanford—”

“Even faster when Walter is your grandfather.”

“Grandfather?” he repeated. “That means you’re—”
