Needing a well-deserved vacation, a sexy yet burned-out homicide detective takes refuge on a deserted island only to have his serenity shattered by the gorgeous student who gets marooned there when her cruise excursion leaves without her. They try to keep things on a platonic level until they admit that it was lust and love at first sight. But what will happen to this precious gift once reality starts calling? Sprinkled with a magical tone, Annette Broadricks latest, MARRIAGE PREY (4.5), is a delightful tale with deep emotional scenes, wonderful character development and a nicely layered conflict.
