DINNER AND A KISS BY EMPI BARYEH
A marriage is anything but convenient for a billionaire bachelor and a single mum wanting more...
Fashion reporter, Abrafi Sarpong must get to Tamale to cover an international pageant, her career depends on it. And her son is depending on her. When a mishap with her flight reservation lands her on the private jet of a handsome billionaire, her life takes an unexpected turn. She isn’t looking for love; but Adonis Aggrey-Finn makes her an offer her heart can’t refuse… even if her head tells her she should.
Business mogul, Adonis Aggrey-Finn has wealth, power and political aspirations… which don’t include tarnishing his name with a scandal. He needs a suitable wife and thinks the beautiful stranger he crossed paths with could be the one. If he’s not careful, spending time getting to know Abrafi could cost him everything, but he can’t deny his attraction to her. When they return home, the illusion is shattered and reality that they are from two different worlds threatens to destroy what could be.

The sounds of the party faded from his mind before the doors were shut again. He’d already shifted gears to focus on the woman beside him. Her heels made a rhythmic clickity-clackity sound against the polished marble floors and his pulse seemed to echo the beat.
“Did you have a fruitful evening?” he asked.
He’d never been one to adopt a wait-and-see attitude. If he had the power to take action on anything, he did it without hesitation. Still, he knew the value of strategy, setting the stage. Which is why he didn’t start with a dinner invitation.
“Yes,” she replied.
“What exactly were you doing?”
“Setting appointments for photos and short videos for our blog and social media sites.”
“That explains it then.”
“Why I wasn’t on your list”
“Oh yeah,” she said with a chuckle. “I already know what your answer would be.”
“A resounding no. You hate social media, and everyone knows you never give interviews except in relation to your company.”
“Doesn’t this event qualify under the latter?”
She started to say something, but stopped. “Wait. Are you saying you’d have said yes?”
He shook his head. “Not exactly.”
“Don’t rely on what you think you know about me. I might surprise you.”
She looked at him, and their gazes held for several seconds. Awareness swirled within him. He could see the same in her eyes.
She did that thing where she shook her head again. It only steeled his determination, but before he could probe, she asked a question of her own.
“What about you? Did you have a fruitful evening?”
Her attempt at changing the subject worked to his advantage as she’d soon discover.
“Not yet,” he answered. “But the evening isn’t over.”
Curiosity claimed her features. “What do you mean?”
“My goal was to secure the company of a beautiful woman for dinner.”
“Then what are you doing out here? You left at least forty-eight of them in there.” She punched her thumb backwards in the direction of the banquet hall.
“I’m not interested in them.”
She paused. Frowned. “You’re not saying—”
“Have dinner with me.”
