Grace King needs to save her catering business by all means necessary. Even if it means striking a deal with the hot estranged husband she walked out on, but can’t forget despite her best efforts.
Sebastian Zwane is baffled to discover he’s still legally bound to the woman who broke his heart. With a booming career and new offices to open, the last thing he needs is a scandal and for her to demand half of the empire he built after their separation.
The bargain that will get them both what they want is put to the test by their sizzling attraction—stronger than ever, in spite of their rocky past. When the deal is over, will they be able to walk away from each other?
Carmen Falcone learned at an early age that fantasizing about fictional characters beats doing math homework any day. Brazilian by birth and traveler by nature, she moved to Central Texas after college and met her broody Swiss husband—living proof that opposites attract. She found in writing her passion and the best excuse to avoid the healthy lifestyle everyone keeps bragging about. When she’s not lost in the word of romance, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, being walked by her three crazy pugs, reading, catching up with friends, and chatting with random people in the checkout line.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you Carmen Falcone for making the hero in this book South-African! There’s something to be said about South-African and the hero in this book perfectly portrays the South-African gentleman. Of course, I never thought Miss Falcone would pull it off, what with her not being South-African and all, but man, she nailed it.
I love that Miss Falcone can build layers of intrigue and suspense in a short read like this. Not only is the story fantastic, but this book is sizzling hot. In fact, I do not recommend reading it when you are alone at home. Really, make sure your husband/boyfriend/significant other/life partner is easily accessible, because believe me, you’ll be wanting to jump their bones four pages into this book.
But that’s not all this book is about. It’s about rekindling a relationship both partners thought had gone to hell, it’s about revealing pasts and secrets, about communicating in a relationship. The only problem I had with it was that it was just way too short.
