Kristin DeMarco vows to protect her broken heart and swear off men until she finishes her degree and starts her career. Survival sex -- a vibrator and a sizzling-hot roommate -- eases urges that can't be ignored, until her craving for a man propels her from the arms of Mr. Wrong to the door of Mr. Right. Irishman Sean O'Neill forces her to consider what she really wants. And what she wants is him in her bed. Too bad he's not cooperating.
Sean is only in America for six months to complete his degree at an archeology field school. He's as serious about his education as he is about keeping his sex life casual. When Kristin knocks on his door asking for condoms, the encounter forces him to rethink that single-minded focus. He wants Kristin for more than one night, but their secrets may end the relationship before it begins.
