Not you mother's romance
She’s poison to men . . .
Maureen LaCroix is certain of only three things: She’s looking down the barrel of forty; her life is a sea of uncertainty; and it appears she is metaphorical poison to men, as she has buried two much older husbands she loved—none of which inspires her to go looking for a relationship, and especially not with a man ten years her junior who has shadows in his eyes and a life as tangled as the seaweed washing up on the shores of Mimosa Key.
He’s candy to women . . .
Dominic Centore, injured shortstop for the Miami Marlins, is facing an uncertain career and news of an unborn child that may or may not be his. The timing is less than perfect for lighting the fuse on a fiery beach affair, but when has Dominic ever backed down from a challenge? Maureen LaCroix is beautiful and smart, and if she happens to be a widow and older than he by a decade, so what? Based on the lady’s protestations, he’s sure she isn’t looking at him as husband number three.
Together they’re unforgettable . . .
Dominic is lured by Maureen’s classy good looks, quick wit, and strength. He’s all for an affair, but soon discovers Maureen engages more than just his body—she challenges his mind, his heart, and every other woman pales in comparison. For the first time in his life, he’s entertaining thoughts of forever. All he has to do is convince Maureen it’s time to forget her mournful past and take a gamble on a younger man. It won’t be easy, he knows. It will be an . . . Unconventional Seduction.
