Rhys Jones had come to exotic Hawaii in search of a mysterious woman-but the powerfully good-looking lawyer forgot his quest after he bumped into a strawberry blonde who was temptation in the flesh. When he learned that the exquisite Lani was part of the puzzle he'd come all the way from London to solve, Rhys was even more intrigued... and aching with the need to possess her. When she moved before him in the timeless rhythms of the hula, her body promised sensual delights he'd never imagined, but her lips warned that he was forbidden. Swept away by unexpected yearning when Rhys embraced her with devastating hunger, Lani moaned in protest... and pleasure. In his arms she blossomed as a woman, burned by the fires of elemental passion that branded her his forever, but ghosts from the past haunted her nights. Rhys was everything she wanted, a tidal wave who knew no, limits-but would giving her heart mean leaving the world she loved?
