An outrageous minx and a buttoned-up Frenchman. When journalist Kerrigan Lush is assigned to interview a seriously rich anti-gambling crusader, she imagines a grandfatherly bore with a comb-over. But Alex Beaufort from Paris has plenty of hair – and enough of everything else to make her mouth water.
Irrepressible Kerri suggests a teasing game of strip poker, and they’re soon peeling off their layers of self-protection. Alex uncovers a free-spirited risk-taker with a gambling problem – the last woman he’d ever want in his life. And Kerri finds a driven man with a past so hellish he surely can’t heal her deeply buried unhappiness.
But opposites have been known to attract, and maybe romance really could be on the cards? Enjoy an international vacation in the South Pacific and see if this couple can build a satisfying future from ashes and hope.
