Library Journal Review

Wed on a whim in Las Vegas and deserted the morning after, archaeological tour guide Cairo McKnight has nothing to show for that night five years later except an annulmentDand a precocious son who's the image of his adventurer father. But now Cairo needs Duncan Kincaid's help, and when she finally tracks him down deep inside a Montana cave, they are forced to deal with their continuing attraction to each otherDin spite of the past. The well-matched protagonists are complemented by a trio of wonderfully memorable secondary characters (including a quirky aunt in search of a relationship, a wheelchair-bound widower with a magnetic personality, and an energetic four-year-old with a genius IQ). The sassy dialog and well-handled sexual tension in this funny, fast-paced romance is sure to please Berg's (Wife for a Day) growing readership. She lives in Folsom, CA. (c) Copyright 2010.
