In this fun, flirty beach read, runaway heiress, Pepper Grady, is in charge of her own destiny, one that doesn’t include being ruled by an over-bearing man like her father. Pepper will never follow in her mother’s footsteps and accept marriage to a man who can't remain faithful. She's held firm to her convictions. Until she meets Nick Guerrero, a hunky, Latino dynamo who bears her father’s supreme confidence, that same Delgado arrogance.
Despite being the ultimate alpha-male, Nick is intriguing and romantic—a man she decides to have an affair with, but without falling in love. She has no idea that he's traveled to Grassy Key to take her back to Isla del Diablo and make her his wife in order to please his dying father.
Ñico seduces Pepper into complying with his plans without realizing he's the one who's seduced. He wants her with the passion Fernandez males are known for, but he doesn't believe in love. After all, passion fades and he is his father's son, so he can't promise what she desperately wants…a lifetime of love and fidelity.
