Unadventurous Lissy McIntyre believes choosing the right man should be based on common sense. She would never pick a rolling stone like Nick Richards for long-term love. But a red-hot, tropical romance? Yes, please. He's got a swoon-worthy body and his kisses leave her senseless. A tropical holiday romance might be what she needs…

When Nick moves to his new job in a small country town, he's stunned to discover that his no-nonsense neighbor and co-worker is the beautiful woman he spent a memorable night with on a tropical island. He's unaccustomed to staying in one place for long, but he just can't seem to stay away from the intriguing woman. Nick doesn't do forever but having Lissy around has him thinking maybe he could...



Apart from the very intriguing premise, I was completely captivated by the vividly descriptive writing of Annie Seaton. I've never been to the South Seas, but I feel as if I've been there and back after reading this. I could taste the salt in the sea air and feel the sunshine on my skin. It's an exhilarating read, to say the least. An unashamedly romantic piece of women's fiction which deserves to be the holiday read of the year. I particularly enjoyed reading about the girls' night out. It reminded me of my single days. Just the kind of book you'd love to discuss with your friends.Verdict? Loved it!- Maria Mohan
You know once in a while I love reading a good romance novel and this is a very good romance novel. Very well written and you can very well imagine the characters.I know this one will be one I will be reading again at some other time. If you enjoy a good romance story then I think you might enjoy this one.- Geeky Girl Reviews
Annie Seaton has crafted a delightful tale of two people who have more in common that they think, but are scared to believe it. Neither one of them trusts that love-at-first-sight really could happen on vacation, even though it's obvious that they are made for each other. Wonderful descriptions of the vacation scenery and a neat inside look at the academic world. I look forward to more from this author! - Roxanne Williams Snopek
 I loved the progression of them from lovers, to almost enemies, and then to HEA... This was a beautifully written love story. Often times these are rushed, and this one was allowed to progress beautifully. I highly recommend this one! It's the perfect book for curling up with a glass of wine.. :)- Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Love a story with a strong woman who knows her own mind. When Lissy meets Nick on holiday she decides to have a fling with him, no strings attached.

This book is filled with twists and turns which make it hard to stop reading. Lissy is very relatable and engaging, and Nick is HOT and charismatic.

I also enjoy it because it's fast-paced, and the first chapter had me at the edge of my seat. The characters seem real... they are flawed, which I l... ...more
