In this stirring and sparkling romance by Sally Goldenbaum, a wealthy divorcé and his interior decorator meet for business—which quickly turns to pleasure. Sam Eastland longs for an oasis. After a messy and very public divorce, the Silicon Valley millionaire just wants a seaside house on California’s Monterey Bay where he can escape his high-pressure world. But the new interior decorator is an unwanted distraction—and a tantalizingly lovely one, at that. Madeline Ames talks about reading the home’s energies and other nonsense, but Sam is paying more attention to her lithe body and eclectic beauty. Yet when he tries to make his interests clear, Maddie rebuffs him—and Sam realizes, for the first time in a long time, that he actually cares.
For Maddie Ames, the Eastland house job is essential. She aims to make a soothing interior for a man who seems highly in need of some relaxation. But after just one encounter with the astonishingly handsome Sam Eastland, Maddie realizes that she might be the one who needs to unwind. A fling with Sam Eastland is not part of her plan. But no amount of denying will make the hot bolt of attraction go away.
