Your tour of desire begins with this story set in Michigan.
Victoria Beaumont is looking forward to relaxing on Mackinac Island, Michigan, at the family’s summer home. All thoughts of relaxing soon flee when she realizes that her father, Charles, has invited Dirk Ramsey to the island. Dirk’s ruthless newspaper articles threaten to damage Charles’s political career. Perhaps if Dirk gets to know the Beaumont’s better he will change his views. Victoria doesn’t want to know him better. True, Dirk Ramsey is the most attractive man she’s ever met — but any interest he shows her is purely for the sake of journalism. At least she thinks it is . . .
