Summer Mahogany (Maine)
In a picturesque fishing village off the coast of Maine, twenty-six-year-old attorney Gina Gaynes has a thriving career and a bright future. The last man she wants to see is Rhyder Owens, a virile member of the yachting set, back in town to shake up her life again. She’s fought hard to forget what happened between them nine years ago. It hadn’t been love, it was raw desire. It wasn’t a marriage, it was a scandal. It ended not in bittersweet goodbyes, but with blackmail.
Now Rhyder is back to reclaim what he never should have let go. But Gina is not the girl he once knew, one given to impulsive fantasies. She’s no longer under the rule of a family who put them both through hell. She’s an independent, sophisticated woman who can’t be swayed by a bronze sculpture made of flesh and blood. And yet, locked in his embrace, her heart skips a beat. It’s making Gina wonder, maybe even hope, that the man who once seemed so wrong for her, could actually be the love of her life.
