The sexual tension and easygoing pacing may seem at odds, but the heat between these two practically leaps from the pages! Spencer and Abby were torn apart by a misinterpretation of events, yet it seems like neither has gotten over the experience. They are strong, clever characters highlighting the importance of open communication and trust in a relationship. The main storyline in this trilogy involving stipulations each brother must meet to inherit the company ties the books together without infringing on the standalone quality of each individual novel. Perfect for a relaxing summer read on the beach or curling up in your favorite chair on a lazy afternoon.

Washington D.C. magnate Spencer Jameson and project manager Abby Rowe are forced to work together on a project despite a past that’s complicated, messy and still causes feelings they would very much like to forget. Which is exactly what they’ll need to do if they want to achieve any sort of decent working relationship and avoid the company gossip mill. They’re both professionals — how hard could it possibly be?
