The road to heartbreak is paved with honorable intentions... After a year dealing with her mum's health scare and the end of a bad relationship, Keira Grayson was looking forward to kicking up her heels at her best friend's wedding. Until she kicks off her (spare) knickers in front of the trifecta of perfection. Tom Carew. Son of an earl, honorable doctor and possibly the hottest man on the planet. One look at Keira's delightful embarrassment, and Tom's hormone meter spins off the charts. Trouble is, his bags are already packed to return to the jungles of Papua New Guinea. He has patients waiting-and amends to make for a terrible choice that left devastation in its wake. They both reason that indulging in a one-time dinner date won't hurt...until their inhibitions melt away in the heat of their lethal sexual chemistry. Leaving Keira wondering if a sizzling fling is just what the doctor ordered, or another prescription for relationship disaster. And Tom fighting a battle against inner demons that could shatter both their hearts. Warning: This book contains a hot aristocratic doctor, sparky heroine, new uses for a chaise longue, a steamy shower scene and a knicker-ripping encounter in a four-poster bed.
