Shannon Raine is used to new people renting the cottage next door every summer. This year an attractive mystery man named Garth Sheridan has moved in. Shannon invites him to dinner with her and her friends. She believes that Garth is a writer or poet. In reality, he is the CEO of a company who is working on a huge bid. But other companies are also trying to win that bid and will stop at nothing to make sure Garth doesn't win.

I read this book more than 20 years ago and thought I'd give it a try again. This book felt very dated. The hero was very condescending toward the heroine. He talked to her like she didn't have a brain in her head. He also tried to make decisions for her concerning what car she should drive and which company she should pick to sell her silk-screened greeting cards and tote bags. Thankfully, the heroine stood up to him a couple of times. My rating: 2.5 Stars.

Finally Shannon Raine decides to stop speculating about her dark, brooding neighbor on California's rugged Mendocino coastline and just introduce herself. But the last thing she expects to find in this enclave of artists and writers is a Silicon Valley mogul. Garth Sheridan is cool, sensual and intriguing. And immediately Shannon knows the passion that flares between them will become intense and all-consuming. A great romance read.

SHE WATCHED HIM WITH A CURIOSITY... THAT LED TO ATTRACTION.
Finally Shannon Raine decides to stop speculating about her brooding neighbor on California's rugged Mendocino coastline -- and just introduce herself. But the last thing she expects to find in this enclave of artists and writers is a Silicon Valley mogul. Garth Sheridan is cool, sensual and intriguing. And immediately Shannon knows the passion that flares between them will become intense and all-consuming.

But the more intimate their desire becomes, the more Garth's life seems hidden from Shannon. She longs to understand this man and the other life he leads, far from the scenic haven they share. Somehow she has to convince Garth that he can trust her with the part of him that rules the ruthless, high-stakes arena of big money and corporate power. For only then can their two worlds become one.
