    Two years ago, geologist Corinthians Avery had brazenly sneaked into a hotel room to seduce Dex Madaris, head of Madaris Explorations and the longtime object of her affection. But the man who emerged from the shower to find Corinthians clad in next to nothing was handsome foreman Trevor Grant. When a smug Trevor informed her that Dex was not only absent from the trip, but at home happily married, Corinthians was mortified.

    Loved the book, but not like the printed version

    I would recommend it to a friend. It is my favorite book. It has steamy, romance with a little mystery thrown in for good measure.

    After a childhood spent moving from army base to army base, independent-minded Nettie Brooms is determined to secure a stable life - and never become involved with a military man. Then she meets incredibly handsome and charming Ashton Sinclair, a dedicated colonel in the U.S. Marines who's intent on capturing her heart - no matter what it takes. Now Nettie's wondering how a man she swore she would avoid could so easily test her resolve by igniting an irresistible passion she can't walk away from.

    Not as good as others

    This book was just okay to me. I'm a Jackson fan, but this one was sort of unrealistic. The narrator was as expected... Not my favorite.

Tired of waiting and wondering, Angelo books a trip to the singles-only Bahamas resort where Peyton Mahoney is celebrating her thirtieth birthday.

    Yes! It has just the right amount of romance and eroticism that makes it believable and stimulating.

Rasheed Valdemon is shocked that his bride-to-be would fly off with someone she barely knows - even though he's the one doing the asking.
