They have a history. A future may be more than she's willing to give.

Haven Reynolds is stunned when her ex-lover Eric Viera turns up at their mutual friends' wedding. Her sources told her he was safely a continent away, doing his anthropology thing. Instead she's scrambling to figure out how to fend off his particularly potent brand of charm.

At least, that's what she tells herself.

Several months in a Costa Rican jungle hasn't dulled Eric's memory of the two weeks he spent with the sexy spitfire. He'd even enjoyed the challenge of breaking through her walls-the warm, passionate woman he'd uncovered had been worth the effort. He'd like nothing better than to pick up where they left off, except those walls are back in place, stronger than ever.

Much to Haven's dismay, Eric takes her in his arms for a rehearsal-dinner dance. In a split second, it all comes back-the memories, the lust and laughter, the intimacy and control she's never allowed any other man. Falling for him again is out of the question, but a weekend of hot sex is an indulgence she can't resist.

Except Eric hasn't come back to Texas just for the wedding. He's come for her.Warning: Contains a sassy heroine, sizzlin' hero, toe-stomping two-stepping and secret encounters.

My rating:

I was quite disappointed with this story. It could’ve been a short, cute little romp, but the whole heroine issue-thing...I don’t know. She had all those walls, wanting always to be in control, hiding her emotions, hiding her fling with the yummy guy from her friends...Without reason. There was no explanation as to why she was the way she was...And her behavior, without such explanation, became immediately annoying and tedious, dragging the story along.

What a pity.
