When Ysabel Belfort leaves her beloved island of San Miguel to marry a wealthy eccentric, she exchanges a life of innocence for one devoid of passion. For seven years, she counts the days until she’s able to reclaim what she was forced to leave behind. Even after her husband’s death, she cannot return home without securing the help of another man: her estranged stepson. By his side, Ysabel embarks on a journey that takes an intoxicating turn. Charismatic news anchorman Jed Corbin has no interest in anything remotely related to his father, but he can’t ignore the wild thoughts that run through his mind every time the young widow is near. Too bad Ysabel’s proposition doesn’t involve getting tangled between the sheets. Instead, she’s desperate for an experienced escort to San Miguel, the same place where Jed once narrowly escaped with his life. But as Jed soon discovers, he can’t say no to a woman who drives him to the brink of desire—and right back into a whirlwind of danger.
