Enjoying her summer vacation was one thing, but to fall in love certainly wasn't in the plans for Maura Fields. However, when she comes face to face with wealthy hotelier Ben Driscoll that's exactly what happens.

Ben Driscoll was a total playboy until his ex-wife died and left him with their young daughter to care for. Yet when he meets Maura who is sunbaking by his hotel's poolside, he can't help but become intrigued by her and want to learn everything about her.

This was a very captivating story from the beginning where the two main characters were introduced. The plot flowed nicely as to did the dialogue, of which I enjoyed the interactions between Maura and Ben's daughter. She seemed like such a precious child, even though she was a bit of a handful for her father at times. The sex scenes were hot, and it was good to see them spaced throughout the book instead of clustered together like some of the romance novels I've read recently. What I enjoyed so much about the heroine was that she was willing to take advice from her mother, and not be so stubborn as to run from love after meeting Ben. While with Ben, I liked how he cared for his daughter but was willing to let someone else into his life as Maura was perfect for him.

Overall, Ms. Montclair has done an exceptional job of penning this novel which brings some interesting secondary characters into the mix with many of Ben's staff having to look after his daughter while he runs the hotel he owns. This is also a story I'd recommend to fans of the contemporary genre that like their heroes and heroines to find that happy ever after that they weren't expecting to ever find again since losing a loved one.
