Description-


  • As hard as she's tried, Diane Maxwell has never forgotten the kiss she and Hale Cameron shared when she was a high school sophomore. Now a respected cardiologist, Diane is also a woman experienced in the highs and lows of love. She isn't ready to entrust her future to another man.... So when she accepts an invitation to vacation in the Virgin Islands, she doesn't expect Hale--now a sexy, sought-after bachelor--to complete the romantic setting.

    Diane isn't at all the pampered, impetuous young girl Hale once held in his arms. She's matured into a sensual, independent woman who reignites their desire one stormy night. Unable to resist the push-pull of passion, they give in to their feelings, embarking on a steamy affair under a searing tropical sun. But to get the wary heart doctor to risk her own heart will take Hale's most seductive powers of persuasion....

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    Uttering an obligatory thank -you and grabbing the claim ticket from the valet, Diane Maxwell took a deep breath and began to hurry down the street toward the minimalist and very modern entrance of the Maryland Museum of African American Culture in Baltimore. She knew the title was much longer than that, but she didn't have time for formality...or to remember.

    Instead, she concentrated on not twisting her ankle in her three-inch dress sandals, or getting the heel caught in the hem of her gown.

    It was cold. Much colder than Diane wanted to accept, even though it was the second week of December. She was dismayed and annoyed that her breath expelled in a chilly vapor. Yet she would not admit to the vanity and poor judgment that had her out for the evening with nothing warmer than a cashmere shawl wrapped artfully around her shoulders, and no panty hose.

    She'd reasoned that she was only going from her car to the entrance of the museum, but she hadn't counted on the valet stand being a city block away. She was already beyond late for the gala function being held at the beautiful facility, but her running-walk had more to do with the goose bumps rising on her exposed arms.

    Diane slowed her pace and stopped in front of the museum entrance, covertly straightening the bodice of her gown. She tucked her evening clutch under her elbow and quickly shook out the yards of silk that made up the skirt. She squared her shoulders and tried to give the appearance of a woman of poise and presence and not the tomboy hoyden she was once known as. But there was no audience for her little pretense or her grand entrance.

    Once inside the glass doors she was immediately assailed by the warmth and met with the hum of conversation from an upper level of the museum.

    "Good evening. Thank you for coming tonight."

    Diane turned to the voice to her left, where a reception table had been set up. Behind it sat a lone woman, her folded hands atop a spreadsheet of the names of guests attending the function. She smiled a greeting in return and approached the table. The matron was attired in an overly bright red dress, with a rhinestone pendant necklace lost in the cleavage of her bosom.

    "May I have your name, please?" the woman asked, her fingertip poised to run down the list.

    "Maxwell. Dr. Diane. I'm here in place of my father, Adam Maxwell."

    "Maxwell...Max...yes, here it is. Oh, he's one of the special guests tonight." She placed a check next to the name.

    Diane glanced quickly around the empty entrance.

    "Am I very late?" she asked, accepting the card calligraphed with her father's name and a table number.

    "You're the last to arrive. They just started serving dinner, but you know how the folks are," the woman said with a knowing smile. "The reception ended late 'cause they couldn't get people to stop drinking and talking."

    Even as she explained Diane could hear one voice over a microphone introducing herself and welcoming everyone to the annual dinner.

    "You better hurry." The woman chuckled. "It's embarrassing to walk in when someone is talking."

    "You're right." Diane grinned sheepishly.

    She lifted the skirt of her gown and, graceful and athletic, took the stairs two at a time, stiletto heels, rustling silk and all.

    "Be careful!" the woman whispered loudly behind her.

    At the top of the stairs Diane regained her composure, dropping the skirt and again shaking out the fabric. She looked inside a large darkened room that had been set up with some twenty tables, each capable of seating ten people. She wasn't paying much attention to the speaker, an elegantly...
