Annette thought she had the perfect solution to prevent what was meant to be a pleasant anniversary celebration from deteriorating into a never-ending lecture from her older sister on the substandard status of her entire life. Inventing a fictitious boyfriend, reportedly detained in an unavoidable, albeit imaginary, business meeting, seemed like a harmless fib if telling it would ensure a festive evening. She even had a plan to cover his exit from her life later on. Rich's estranged wife had gone too far this time and he'd had enough. He had no clue what setting him up as another woman's date for an evening of drinks, dinner and theater with the woman's family was supposed to accomplish but he was determined to find out. When his new better half didn't so much as blink at his unexpected arrival he decided right then and there that he wasn't letting her out of his sight. He'd play his role of escort to the hilt to get to the bottom of it even if he had to tie her to the bed and seduce the answers out of her once the other couple said goodnight.
