Justine Lavoie will do anything to keep her family’s award-winning newspaper in a small Florida town from closing. Her remaining option is to seek the services of a private investment firm.
Trouble is, the firm is owned by her ex-lover, Rafael Menedez de Aviles, who now commands half of Miami and beyond. Lasting memories of their love, their sexual fireworks and their heartache built walls Justine’s never been able to break through.
Rafael came from Cuba as a boy with nothing but the clothes on his back. He’s fought his way to the top, but he’s not satisfied with the glitz and glamour of Miami. He never dreamed he would see Justine again, until her desperation makes their worlds collide. Rafael, recalling their sensual games when they were younger, makes a proposition. Spend the next month together, allowing him to do anything he desires with her, and the newspaper gets everything it needs.
Justine, wanting him and needing to save her business, says yes.
It seems a simple enough affair, to burn off the heat between them and walk away for good, but opening their hearts and giving their bodies to each other a second time may destroy them forever.
