SOME PASSIONS CAN'T BE DENIED . . .

Jessi Randal walked away from her last relationship with a baby and a broken heart. Now, years later, the last thing this single mom wants is to give Windfall Island-and all its nosy residents-anything more to gossip about. But the moment she lays eyes on the tall, sexy stranger with the slow Southern drawl, she knows she's in delicious trouble . . .

Holden Abbot is on the island to find the missing heir to the Stanhope family fortune. It's his job to charm as many secrets out of the town as possible. And if he can charm Jessi into his bed, even better. When all evidence points to her as the heir, a dangerous enemy sets his sights on Jessi and her son. Now Holden will have to risk everything to protect the family he's come to love.

Sullivan's second Windfall Island contemporary (after Temptation Bay) is chock full of romance and suspense. Jessica Randal is a lifelong resident of Windfall Island, Maine, where she lives with her young son, Benji. After getting pregnant in high school and being abandoned by the baby's father, Jessi became part owner and business manager of Solomon Charters. Eight years later, she meets Holden Abbott, who comes to the island to study its genealogy as well as its possible link to the Stanhope fortune. A Stanhope infant was rumored to have survived a disaster at sea decades ago and may have descendants on the island. Jessi tries to avoid Hold's Southern charm, but as the allure becomes too great and happiness is finally within reach, her possible link to the Stanhope scandal puts her life in danger. The romance between Jessi and Hold is both sweet and sensuous, but the stronger story is the mysterious disappearance of the Stanhope heir and the parallel quests to reward or destroy her present-day descendants. (Aug.)

From the Publisher
"4 stars! Fans of Sullivan's beautiful, remote
Windfall Island will thoroughly enjoy this return to the familiar craggy landscape of her Maine setting, and new readers deserve to discover this fascinating place.
The carefully structured plot is sound and the mystery element of the story grows organically to a startling, suspenseful conclusion. However, the best part of this book, by far, is the honest, challenging and tremendously passionate relationship that develops between this wary heroine and the charming stranger who turns her world around."—RT Book Reviews on Hideaway Cove"

Sullivan's contemporary debut deftly combines intrigue, romance, and witty banter...the sizzling passion between Dex and Maggie propels this page-turner forward to its explosive ending."—Publisher's Weekly on Temptation Bay"
