It's Naomi Clemons's big day. Her dream wedding. And she's outta here.
One moment. A chance meeting of gazes through the church window pane with someone familiar who radiates intrigue. Independence. It's the final push Naomi needs to realize . . . she's boring. A blonde, cookie cutter, well mannered trophy wife-to-be. How can she expect to lead a fulfilling married life when she's never lived?
Special Forces diver Jason Bristow needs a beauty pageant coach. Not for himself-although the tattooed bruiser could definitely use some charm. For his little sister who he has returned to St. Augustine, Florida, to raise. When a beautiful southern debutante lands on his doorstep, she awakens a hunger that won't be ignored. If only she wasn't planning on winning back the ex-fiancé she left at the altar . . .
Despite the potential for ruin, heat continues to build between Naomi and Jason beneath the sultry Florida sunshine, consuming them both. But they're on borrowed time . . . and it's about to run out.
Contains mature themes.
