Noted for her African-American contemporary romances, the author of Beguiled makes her Avon debut with this exquisite tale of passion on an island paradise.
Tired of being a wallflower, Nadine Clayton had hidden behind her thick glasses for too long while life and romance passed her by. So she tosses out her frumpy clothes, lets down her hair, and heads to an island paradise where she meets Ulysses Deane, a handsome, mysterious stranger. Ulysses claims he isn't looking for love, but his searing kisses and passionate embraces tell Nadine a different story. He is hiding something…and Nadine realizes that maybe she is getting far more adventure than she bargains for.
