Denver, Colorado – Present Day

In the middle of a snowstorm, two strangers attempt to grab the same taxicab, only to find it already occupied…by an abandoned baby! Billionaire businessman Zack Harrison is in the middle of a big deal he's trying to close, and all he wants to do is relax at his cabin while he awaits the decision. Journalist Trinity Matthews wants to head back to New York City to her job and hopes she can beat the storm before it closes the airport. But alas, one tiny little baby throws a wrench into their plans. Who does the infant belong to? Zack and Trinity contact the authorities, but with the snowstorm swirling around them, roads are nearly impassable. Forced to spend the night in Zack's cabin, Trinity becomes more aware of how irresistible he's proving to be. But if she gives into a temporary affair with him, will she do the one thing she's sworn never to do…fall in love? And what about the baby? Who left her alone in a cab? Trinity and Zack profess to have no room in their lives for a child, yet as the hours pass, they begin to fall in love with the tiny bundle of joy...and each other.

Like two ships passing in the night, Trinity and Zack didn't seem destined to meet until chance (a baby) forces them together. While they've been focused on their respective careers, neither can just leave the baby behind to be placed into the sterile care of police and foster care. Trinity was raised in foster care and is well aware of how traumatic it can be. Zack's family is close, yet his father was always business first, so he can't explain why he wants to be there for the little girl. Trinity is well aware of Zack's playboy reputation, which he doesn't deny, but he's having second thoughts the more he's around Trinity, even as the thought of parenthood scares him. Yet neither can deny how good being together feels.

In STRICTLY TEMPORARY, a series of coincidences bring together Trinity, Zack, and the baby they name Bonnie. Career minded and definitely not looking for love, marriage, or children in their lives, the little girl suddenly has them feeling like parents…and a couple. Granted, having a baby around makes finding alone time for some nookie hard to do, but as luck would have it, they get a little assistance from another stranded guest—of the four legged kind. The sizzling heat between Zack and Trinity makes for some toasty nights wrapped in each other's arms even as the snow swirls around them outside.

Robyn Grady's STRICTLY TEMPORARY has it all—a couple falling in love despite their avowal to never do so, a baby, a dog, and being stranded in a snowy, isolated cabin in Colorado. Will Zack and Trinity walk away from each other and never see Bonnie again? Find out for yourself in this sizzling tale.
