(The second book in the Men of West Beach series)
A novel by

Emerson Monroe McLean is a true Texan through and through. But she's never wanted to be like the other girls she grew up with, the ones who view debutante balls and sororities as stepping-stones to landing the perfect husband.

Yet everyone underestimates Em. When they look at the leggy blonde, all they see is a serial-dater who leaves a string of broken hearts in her wake. What people don't realize is that keeping guys at arms length is more than just about having a good time; it's a deep-rooted defense mechanism.

Lucas Harper is California born and bred. The product of his wealthy upbringing and an overbearing mother, Lucas has always been told where to be and when to be there.

But after his older brother's death, Lucas is tired of being a puppet. Taking a break to figure out what he wants out of life, he moves to West Beach to spend the summer surfing. It's there that he meets Emerson McLean, the free-spirited beauty who lures him into her bed. Refusing to be tied down, she's unlike any girl he's ever known. Their chemistry is undeniable.

There's only one hitch: Lucas already has a fiancee. And when she lands on his doorstep, Emerson realizes that for the first time in her life, she has genuine feelings for a guy.

With her heart on the line, Emerson discovers that, win or lose, she isn't the kind of girl to play by the rules.
