THE HEAT IS ON… — Katherine Inskip’s life is at a complete standstill. She’s overworked, stressed out and feeling blasé about love — a bad state for the author of historical romances to find herself in. A vacation is what she needs — sun, sand and relaxation. — But on a beautiful South Seas island, Kate finds a whole lot more than she’d bargained for. Jared Hawthorne, owner of the island resort and resident swashbuckler, could have stepped off the pages of one of her books. He’s her perfect fantasy — charming, adventurous and dashing — and more than willing to play the part. But could Jared have too much in common with his pirate ancestors?
