When it comes to disastrous relationships, Suzanne Rand wrote the book. The frumpy-housewife-turned-superstar-author has come home to North Carolina to sell the family house—then hightail it back out of town.But there's an unfinished chapter in her life: bad-boy-turned-successful-businessman Rick Gordon. Suzanne's been burned before and can't let the roving playboy play fast and loose with her heart again…even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs. And once passion reignites in Rick's arms, she has no idea where this story's going….Rick could write the book on how not to get hooked. But he's never forgotten Suzanne, and now's his chance to pick up where they left off. That's why he's plotting a course of seduction she'll never be able to resist. But will their rekindled passion lead to love…and the happy ending they both crave?
