Ambitious career woman Leigh Taylor Cole and laid-back islander Deke Kearney have nothing in common—except a sizzling chemistry that turns their lives upside down and makes Leigh question her promise to bring him home to Seattle.
But Deke's going nowhere with the uptight mainlander. Until, that is, kidnappers threaten his son's safety and send the threesome into hiding in a secluded up-island cabin.
Proximity and provocative Maui breezes work their magic, forging a passionate bond between Leigh and Deke and forcing Leigh to face her greatest fear. And eventually to unlock a secret buried so deeply in her past, she's hidden it even from herself.
Molly Charles is the pseudonym of team writers Jena MacPherson and Joanne Otness. Lifelong friends, the award-winning duo grew up in Washington’s wine country.
Jena was a staff editor and travel writer for Sunset Magazine in Seattle. Joanne was an international flight attendant for Pan American Airlines with travel assignments around the world. Both love travel, dogs of all shapes and sizes, gardening, the arts, double-tall Starbucks lattes, and writing Molly Charles books.
They are drawn again and again by the allure of the Hawaiian Islands, especially Maui—the setting for their current novel.
All he wanted was to provide a good life for Sammy and live a life as close to nature’s beauty as possible. Most importantly, he wanted to spend time with his son.
That scenario didn’t appeal to Leigh.
Deke slumped deeper into the patio chair.
The struggle to keep Sammy had clarified one thing. Deke knew that he wanted a real home. A real family—brothers and sisters for Sammy—and a woman, a partner, who shared those dreams. He had to face facts. If he were to marry again, he would make damned sure he married the right woman.
And it wasn’t Leigh.
No matter how potent their chemistry, when it came down to commitment, she put her career and her duty to Olivia first. Leigh wasn’t the kind of woman to build a life and family with him any more than Courtney had been. Yet, for now, the fake engagement was his best option. So, as painful as it was, he’d stay on course and see it through.
