Millionaire professor, Adam Brant is hiding from life. When
his broken engagement is plastered all over the papers and tabloids, he
retreats to the only place he's ever felt he belonged--his late grandmother's
lighthouse in Briny Cove, Florida. He vows to live in seclusion away from nosy
reporters, money-hungry women and people who can't accept him for who he is.



Ambitious wanna-be journalist, Megan O'Conner is stuck in
Briny Cove, living with her family, struggling to finish her degree and working
odd jobs. When she finds out the new tenant in the old lighthouse is Adam
Brant, Megan believes she's found her ticket out. But as she gets to know the
sexy brainiac professor better, everything changes. Will she choose the
exclusive story or the man who has stolen her heart?

EXCERPT:

Megan stayed where she was and gazed out at the water. "The view is awesome. You can see for miles. It's so beautiful up here."

Adam
joined her, keeping his distance as he stood near the windows. Whatever
had just happened between them had left him shaken and trembling with
need. He had to get Megan O'Conner out of the lighthouse and back to the
mainland as quickly as possible.

"Are you ready to go now?" he asked her quietly.

She turned toward him and smiled. "You trying to get rid of me?"

"Yes." If he didn't, he might do something foolish. Like kiss her. And then what?

Megan's
smile faded. She looked at him out of solemn eyes and nodded. "Then I
guess it's time I left." She headed toward the door.

Adam caught her arm and twirled her around to face him. "Don't come back to the lighthouse, Megan. I don't want you here."

She
lifted that damnable chin of hers. "I don't believe you mean that, Adam
Brant." She grinned and disappeared down the stairwell.

Her
words and smile ignited a powerful exhilaration inside Adam's chest, and
at that precise moment, he knew he was in trouble. Very deep trouble.

Trevor Callahan's long estranged grandfather is dead. As a kid, living with the stern old man had been pure hell. Trev returns to Stone Creek for one reason and one reason only: To sell the Rocking C Ranch. Maybe then he can put his past behind him and move on.

Beth Evans once confused lust for love and vows never to let it happen again. The bookmobile driver is trying to raise funds to build a new library. The late Hank Callahan bequeathed one million dollars for the project, but he attached one stipulation: Do not let his grandson sell the ranch.

EXCERPT:
 

He leaned across the desk.  “You know, we haven’t discussed the kiss the other night.”
 

She scooted the chair back.  “There’s nothing to discuss.”  
 

He stood and slowly came around the desk, reached for her hand and pulled her to her feet.  “I want to kiss you again.”
 

“That’s probably not a good idea.”  Oh, lord.  She was playing with fire and if she wasn’t careful, she was going to get burned.  Bad.
 

“Probably not.  I know you said we’d never kiss again.  But don’t you want to kiss me?  Can’t you feel the pull between us?”
 

“Yes . . . No!”  She jerked her hand free and started backing away.
 

He followed, closing in on her until she bumped against the library table.  

“Just one kiss, Beth.  One kiss can’t hurt.”
 

Before she could react, before she could reply, Trevor wrapped his arms around her, covered her mouth with his and God help her, she was a goner.
