Their love was ancient history…until their paths crossed again.

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he's back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career--if he doesn't steal her heart first. Samantha's vowed to hate him, but it's more than anger heating the competition between them.

With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at it worth the risk?

Yay! I have another go-to contemporary romance author to add to my list of automatic buys. :)

I'm a sucker for reunited love stories, and that's what this one was. At first, I couldn't figure out why they'd let five years go by. I understood why Sam didn't track Dean down, but I didn't get why he didn't track her down. (view spoiler) ...more
