Paul McAlpine was taking to the woman in a wheelchair at the exclusive resort on one of the Fijian Islands when he saw the woman's daughter coming toward them. Her name was Jacinta and she was beautiful, a heart stopper, but Paul wasn't looking for a relationship. Besides, Jacinta had enough problems right now. It was obvious her mother was dying. That night he asked her to dance, but in the morning he was gone.
Jacinta Lyttleton sees her friend Gerard off on a flight to Los Angeles before heading out to his friend Paul's estate called Waitapu, about a half an hour north of Auckland, where she was going to spend three glorious months. Gerard warned her about falling in love with Paul. Handsome, he is, Gerard said, but five years ago his fiance left him at the alter and he's never gotten over it. He bought Waitapu, dates on occassion, but apparently he's strictly a love and leave 'em kind of guy now.
Well, as you can probably guess, Gerard's friend Paul is none other than the dashing man she'd met in Fiji just before her mother passed away. Be still her heart. And what about Paul? He's got a heart too.
This is still another romance that I've read by Ms. Donald. It seems I can't get enough of her wonderful stories. I keep coming back for more.
