Pippa Rowantree hasn't had the easiest of life, even though she's a socialite. Now though, she's gotten herself into trouble again, trouble it seems there's no way of getting out of and it may just end her up in jail. What makes it even worse, is that her father is shipping her off to hide at an old friend's estate in the Caribbean.

Marco Capello isn't at all pleased to have Pippa staying with him, not when she almost ruined his life once with her wild antics. However, the beautiful woman he picks up from the airport doesn't seem to be the same one he remembers. When he realises something is very wrong, he does everything he can to learn why Pippa is in trouble and how he can get her out of it.

The plot of this story was incredible from the start with Pippa being shipped off to stay with Marco. The dialogue was well-written and I loved the history these two had as it illustrated how much chemistry was still between them, even though Marco was resentful because of how different his life turned out to what he expected. The sex scenes were scorching hot, and in the end, I don't think Marco would have changed how his life turned out because this hero and heroine were meant to be together. What I liked so much about Pippa was that she was a fighter. She was determined to fight for what was right, even if in the end she wound up in jail due to recent trouble she found herself in. While with Marco, I liked how when he realised how bad things were for Pippa that he did everything in his power to help her. Since it seemed she needed someone on her side.

Overall, this was a wonderfully penned novel with a great heroine and hero that I'm glad found their way back to each other after everything that had happened between them in the past. And lastly, this is a story I would recommend to all romance readers that love a hero who is willing to help the heroine in any way he can.
