Freelance writer Jacqueline Tate arrives in Los Angeles and soon meets brilliant, award-winning scientist Randall Atwater, the man she's come to cover at a conference on trends and technology. He is everything she's read about - brainy, witty, handsome, and cool. And after a week spent with the most fascinating man she's ever known, there's no way she can give him up. There's just one problem: Randall's wife of 20 years. No matter - men like Randall are few and far between.

Years ago, when Ryan Stewart saw Shawna Ferguson, it was love at first sight. Unfortunately, he wasn't a free man, and his deception caused him to lose her after a weekend that changed his life. When Shawna's sister and brother-in-law set her up on a blind date, she has no idea it's with Ryan, with whom she'd spent a weekend she wishes she could forget. She reluctantly agrees to finish the date with him, but doing so leaves her vulnerable to his charms and the heat he ignited in her that very first night.

Investigative reporter Christy Madaris doesn't want to complicate her life with romance. She made that mistake once when she believed Alex Maxwell's promise to marry her. True, Alex made that promise when Christy was just a teenager. But she believed him with all her heart - and when Alex laughed it off years later, Christy was crushed.

Brenda Jackson is the Woman!!!! I continue to reach a mind orgasm with each of your books. I have not been displeased as of yet. Also, you hit the jackpot with Mr. Pete reading for you. I just want to know when his version of the local telephone book is coming out, because I could listen to him read it all night. Great job by you both. Thanks (exit a cigarette moment "figuratively".)

I enjoyed the story but the narrator's chosen voice for Pierce was corny. it was hard to imagine in my mind's eye Pierce being as handsome as the author describes him from the narrator's voice. Also, I read this book from my new membership in the romance package. It is very disappointing that only one or two of Francis Ray's books in this series are included within the package although they all are considered romance. It appears to be a scam to get you to purchase out side of the package as well. NOT Cool!!!
