Poppy Walker dreams big. Right now she’s determined to turn her family’s dilapidated mountain cabins into a successful resort, no matter what anyone says, and no matter that it’s taking longer than she thought to get them into shape. So, although the property is not near ready, when a devastatingly handsome stranger arrives on site, wads of cash in hand and asking for a month of privacy, she’s tempted to take him as her first guest…and then she’s tempted to take him on as something so much more.
Ryan Hamilton just wants a place to hole up and keep to himself. His dark memories hit him hard this time of year and he’ll face them alone so no one else gets hurt. But a sunny beauty with a spring in her step keeps luring him out of his cave and makes him smile, laugh, kiss. She’s irrepressible, their attraction’s combustible, and it turns out that an affair with Poppy Walker is just plain…irresistible.
When the brooding hero finds out that the bright-eyed optimist in his arms has hurts and secrets of her own, can he find a way to make them both happy?
This is an enhanced version of a book previously published as TAKE MY BREATH AWAY and includes extras.

This book starts out telling a story then seems to switch to another. I'm just looking for a simple romance with either humor or intrigue and I didn't find that in this story.

It was a good book from start to finish. I could have done without the addition of Linus's screen play writing interspersed within the story, but I really enjoyed the story overall.
