When ruggedly virile Nick Capoletti emerged forn the shower wrapped only in a towel and a knock-em-dead smile, Pippa Pauling felt lightheaded with longing and tempted beyond resistance! No man this sinfully gorgeous had ever come to the cozy mountain lake resort where she was raising her daughter alone - and it had been so long since she'd been held in strong arms and kissed breathless. From the moment they touched, Nick knew Pippa was no vacation fling - she was hearth and home, fresh air and freckles...an enchantress who no idea of her dazzling power over him. He wanted to taste her sweetness, to feed the fire in her blood, but Pippa feared the magic they wove together was fleeting, that no one could fall in love this quickly and make it last. Abandoned once by someone she loved, she'd found contentment, a safe little world in Serenity Cove - but loving Nick meant finding a new dream. Could she put her past behind her to find forever in his arms?
