Katie Connelly is the daughter of wealthy grocers. She is pampered, spoiled and only knows of the world and the people around her, which is why she doesn't know what to make of the tall, dark and handsome Puerto Rican man who rescues her from the harassment of a drunken ex-boyfriend outside a bar one night. Ramon Galverra is gorgeous, sensual, charming, regal, smooth, but temperamental and alpha male-ish -- not to mention a major male chauvinist -- and Katie is terrified of him. Physically, he reminds her of her cheating, abusive ex-husband, and she senses that Ramon is hiding something from her. Ramon is a powerful tycoon on the verge of bankruptcy and he has nothing to offer Katie other than a simple life in a small cottage in Puerto Rico. Will that be enough for Katie? Will Katie learn to trust Ramon and will she want to marry him? There are some twists throughout the novel.
