Jessica Gentry (who's 22) and Adam Oakman (in his early 30's) meet on a beach on one of the Golden Isles of Georgia and feel a very strong attraction to each other. Jessica discovers Adam is her brother Dennis's boss and she may be in danger. Her brother Dennis is working undercover for the Justice Department on a smuggling case in the area. Smugglers searched Dennis's room and took a folder which had a photo of Jessica with her parents, so now the bad guys know what she and her family look like. Her parents are away at the moment touring the Greek islands so Jessica is all alone in the house. Adam vows to keep Jessica safe and wants her to move into his home on the beach (near where she was living) for a while until this all blows over. Jessica doesn't want to live with him so he decides they temporarily marry and get an annulment later. A confused Jessica doesn't know what to think, this is all so sudden, but she agrees to it.

Jessica was a likable heroine. She was sweet, and innocent, and naïve at times. Adam...sometimes I liked him, and sometimes he was cranky and annoying.

This was an okay read with some mild suspense at the end, and a lovely setting---the Golden Isles of Georgia. ( )
