A MAN IN A MILLION
Professional sailor Madeline Maguire's already edgy. She's on the verge of taking control of her shares in her dysfunctional family's company when a mutual friend suggests that chef Spike Moriarty accompany Mad to her weekend showdown with her domineering brother. This forces her to confront her feelings for Spike too. A man with a past he isn't proud of, Spike's just as unequipped for a relationship as Mad is, but after six years of waiting, he can't resist her any longer. Jessica Bird's A Man in a Million (4.5) features a larger-than-life, irresistible hero and an equally complex, intriguing heroine. Top-notch.
