June Saxon is determined to rebuild her life after a treacherous business partner cheated her out of her small inheritance. With a challenging, once-in-a-lifetime international job just within her reach, she certainly doesn't need handsome businessman Matt Gardiner offering to make up for his ex-wife's deceit. And, she surely doesn't want the unexpected attraction between them to endanger her future - even though it fires her deepest, most sensual passions.

Booklist Review

June Saxon has had a run of bad luck. First, her friend Carlotta stole the money she invested in a joint business venture, running off to marry a wealthy man; then she was injured on the job and now can't work as a stewardess. But just when things look bleak for Johnson's feisty heroine, a possible job in Paris materializes, and her former friend Carlotta's ex-husband, Matt Gardiner, pays back the stolen money. At first, she's insulted, but she needs the money so she takes it; and later, when the two accidentally meet on the moonlit beach, sparks fly. June wonders why she is drawn to the same man as her dishonest friend but soon finds out he's a breeder of basenji dogs and not the man she thought he was. Other misconceptions haunt their fledgling relationship while June's job opportunity in Paris hovers in the background in this delightful African American romance. --Patty Engelmann
