New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown has thrilled readers worldwide with stories of suspense, mystery, and complex relationships. In this beloved classic romance, a woman vows never to let her heart be broken again—only to find her path crossing with a man who threatens to seduce her into breaking every promise. As far as Kirsten Rumm is concerned, it’s the publicity stunt from hell. But for the good of her book, she agrees to share her beachfront home with the impossibly sexy bad-boy actor starring in the film version of her story. Any other woman would die to be in her sandals, but Kirsten isn’t falling for Rylan North. Seducing an audience is his job. So why is he so desperately pretending to want her?From the moment they meet, Rylan knows that Kirsten will be the star of his real-life love story. He is determined to discover what tragedy holds this passionate woman back from a second chance at love even if it costs him his career—and his life. But first Rylan must coax Kirsten to act on her instincts—and to trust the flesh-and-blood man behind the fantasy.
It was the publicity stunt from hell as far as Kirsten Rumm was concerned. She may have been writing the book about her late husband, aeronautical daredevil Demon Rumm, but she didn’t see the need to play host to the arrogant bad-boy actor starring in the film version’s title role. Still, for the good of the project, Kirsten agreed to share her beachfront home with the impossibly sexy screen idol. Any other woman would do anything to be in her sandals, but Kirsten wasn’t falling for Rylan North, even if he did play his role of male lead to perfection. His down-home charm, his gentleness and virile charisma, might be seducing her in every sense of the word, but he was an actor, after all. Seducing an audience was his job. Rylan could have any woman he wanted. So why was he so desperately pretending to want her?From the moment he saw her, Rylan North knew that Kirsten Rumm was the woman he’d been waiting all his life to cast as the star in his real-life love story. What did it matter if he was every woman’s fantasy if he couldn’t get Kirsten to so much as glance his way? He’d caught the look of past hurt behind her sky-blue eyes–a dark secret that shadowed the sparkle. Rylan was determined to find out what tragedy held this passionate woman back from a second chance at love even if it cost him his reputation, his career, and his life. But first he’d have to get Kirsten to act on her instincts . . . and to trust the flesh-and-blood man behind the fantasy.
