Nick wanted to die. He wanted the pain to be over. His life lay before him in tatters and there was no way he could muster the strength to go on. 

Kelly likens her life to living on shifting sand. Beneath the surface are shocking secrets her family would prefer kept that way. But secrets always come undone at the worst possible times.

When fate brings these two fragile people together, the results are explosive.

Reader's Comments:

Just finished the book. Have to say I loved it! Loved the characters. Didn't want it to end . Have to tell you that I usually read thrillers (James Patterson). Loved loved this book. Cannot wait for your next one. Sharon Schwarcz

I enjoyed this book very much! It's a fast paced love story with complex characters. A great read to take your mind off these trying times. Gail Gamache

Just finished reading Summer Temptation, couldn’t put it down. The author’s vivid description of the resort, where the story takes place, made me feel I was right there. What a great story of love between a mature man and a young woman. Claudia Donovan
