Overview

She was sexy, smart...and for sale.

When Parker Quinn is forced to accept an outrageously high bid at a charity auction, she has no choice but to go out with the last man on earth she wants to spend time with. Dean Maxwell may be one of Manhattan's most eligible bachelors, but he's also the man who had an affair with her sister and abandoned her when she became pregnant with his child...

Dean doesn't know why Parker hates him so much, but he's determined to show Parker the type of man he really is. Whisking her away to a private island in the Bahamas for a sensual, sun-drenched week together, Dean leaves Parker's preconceptions shattered and her desires inflamed.

But even as their passion reaches irresistible heights, Parker has a decision to make. Can she allow herself to fall for the seductive magnate, or will family secrets and a dangerous ex tear them apart?

Read an Excerpt

Standing in a room filled to capacity with the expensively dressed men and women of New York City's social elite, Dean Maxwell was in the midst of contemplating creative ways to torture the eldest sister who'd wheedled him into attending this event when he saw her. Petite, dark-haired, stunning, and looking like she wanted escape as much as he did. Without a second thought, Dean made his excuses to the trio of women who'd cornered him upon his arrival and subsequent desertion by his dear sister.

He made his way across the crowded room. His target turned to talk to someone who drew her attention and Dean stopped completely for a moment, his breath trapped in his chest. The woman wasn't wearing a bra. The calf-length, silky, black gown wrapped around that slender body plunged dramatically in the rear to the small of her back, exposing nothing but a long expanse of smooth, pale skin that he alternately wanted to touch and to cover from other male eyes at the same time.

The primitive possessiveness startled him, but he didn't question it. When his heart started beating again, Dean had to force the white-knuckled hand gripping the champagne flute to relax before he snapped the stem in two. Five more feet and he was able to overhear the conversation between her and her apparently unwanted companion.

"No, really, I'm fine right here," she was saying, her voice low but insistent. Dean could hear the underlying note of frustration in her cool tone.

"Babe, you're looking flushed," her companion countered as he snaked a hand down to her hip with ease and familiarity. Anger flickered hotly through Dean. "Let's just step out onto the balcony for a bit. The fresh air'll do you good. Clear your head. And we'll be able to talk privately."

"Ty—"

"Here's the champagne you asked for," Dean interjected firmly, stepping forward. She spun around and he found himself staring into eyes the color of good Scotch whisky. For the second time that night, breathing was forgotten.

    scintillating sex, passion and a strong and absorbing plot

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** Love and hate are reputedly two sides of the same coin. And when Parker meets her bête noire the coin flips before she has time to stop drooling over the hunkiest alpha male she's ever met.

    Dean Maxell is not a man to let a little 'hatred' get in the way of winning the love of the woman who's stolen his heart. But he and Parker soon discover that the path to enduring love is strewn with treachery, deceit, family secrets, and the need to face their own vulnerabilities. The darkness of the past must be explored to find out why so many people are suddenly interested in their relationship.

    Parker, for one, doesn't know where to turn. Always having been there for others, it doesn't immediately occur to her that she can turn to Dean.

    Ms. Bruce is an incredibly talented author who weaves her complex plots and conflicts with apparent ease and smoothness that ensures you keep turning the page. The writing is strong, the characters well-developed and the storyline fascinating.

    If you like your books to include scintillating sex, passion and a strong and absorbing plot, then this book is a must read for you.
