By Suzan Battah
Suddenly, life takes a sudden detour from her plan; much to the delight of her boisterous Latin American family.
Christophe Augustine is groomed to take over his father’s successful chain of luxurious hotels. He works hard, plays harder and seeks approval and recognition above all else. So when a gorgeous Latino woman changes one boring morning into an interesting game of roleplay, Chris is intrigued, and wants to get to know her more.
Fate, and a bit of scheming, brings Julia and Chris together again and they wind up sharing some unexpected ups and downs, her pushing him away, his desire for her growing stronger. Because of this relentless stranger she experiences a revival in her ability to feel safe and protected by a man. The passion between them far exceeds her expectations, more anything she’s ever known…
Guilt plagues her and she makes irrational choices, struggling with the limitations she sets for herself. What Chris doesn’t know is Julia’s heart is not free to love him back, it’s the biggest challenge they’ll both have to face.
