Book Description

Desperate to flee the breaking scandal swirling around her ex, event coordinator Claudia Jefferies flies to exotic Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. As if being pampered at an exclusive spa weren't enough, now a drop-dead-gorgeous man is showering her with attention! But Claudia's too smart to get seriously involved, especially with a heartbreaker like Santiago Medina. If only her heart would listen to her head.…

From the moment Santiago spots Claudia, he knows it's more than lust at first sight. And this man is used to getting what he wants. He'll wine and dine the stunning, soft-spoken Southerner with tropical nights of passion she'll never forget. But once Claudia finds out who Santiago really is, can he turn a fleeting island idyll into a passionate escape to love?

4.0 out of 5 stars Passionate and witty read March 14, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this read. The Bernie Madoff-esque back story wasn't really original, but the love story between Claudia and Santiago was great. These two had a lot of passion, and the playful banter between them was really hilarious and really made them have a good connection. There were a few steamy love scenes, include an almost love scene in a! It's great to see Harlequin giving their authors a bit more freedom with their writing when it comes to the love scenes. The ones in this book feel very authentic, and nothing is held back. Another great read from Pamela Yaye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Escape to Paradaise February 4, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rating 4.5
Escape to Paradise by Pamela is a good book. The moment I was introduce to Santiago I was a gone.

The day Claudia divorce is finalized, her ex-husband is arrested on suspicion of corporate fraud and the authorities suspect Claudia is involve. In order to get away from all of this mess Claudia decided to go visit her aunt, but her sister talks her into going to Cabo where her and her husband have a house there. Claudia changes her look and decides to take her sister up on her offer

Santiago is on his way home to help out his mother at the resort, but while at the airport Santiago sees this woman who just take is breath away. While at the airport Santiago decided to introduce himself to Claudia but while he is watching her he also sees that just had turn down every man who approach her so he figure he need to come up with another solution.

Santiago offer Claudia at sandwich while waiting for their flight and in the beginning Claudia is cautious but in the end there share lunch while there Santiago tries to find out something about her, he do find out that they are going to same place for different reason.

Santiago is drawn to Claudia at first sight, but she doesn't want anything to do with him, she just wants to find a little peace and quiet until the scandal her ex caused has died down.
Unfortunately once she get to the resorts there is a problem with her credit card which Claudia runs into Santiago at the resorts that his parents. Santiago sees this as way of getting to know Claude and when he find out about the trouble with her credit card he come in a save the day. This leaves Claudia needing to take the helpful hand of the sinfully sexy Santiago.

The attraction between them starts to quickly ignite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Escape to Paradise is a treat! October 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Claudia Jefferies discovered the day of her divorce that her ex-husband had swindled multiple clients out of a fortune. Claudia escaped to Cabo San Lucia to get away from all the media hype.On her trip Claudia meets sexy heartthrob Santiago Medina at the airport, then later at the hotel when her credit card won't go through. The manager was called to approve her stay. Santiago posed as the manager and allowed Claudia to stay. During her stay Santiago becomes more enamored each day with Claudia and finally believes he's met the woman of his dreams. The rest is romance history.. A good read.

By Liz
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the 2nd book I read by Pamela Yaye. This book's storyline was okay. I felt bad for Claudia. I loved Santiago. I thought Santiago was very hot, sexy, good looking, nice, sweet, & loving. This book isn't a hot & steamy romance but it was an okay book to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Hide... February 5, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first I had to wonder why Claudia was crawling out the side window of her house. I thought maybe she was running from the police or something like that but the real reason works. The press can be bloodhounds and the only way to beat them is to make a getaway. Claudia's escape works and then she thinks of running to her aunts' house? What! You climb out a window to go somewhere they can find you?! I was glad her sister talked her into going to Cabo. I laughed along as many men tried to get close to her, she must be hot looking to get so much attention and laughed harder when Santiago tried. Then instantly became touched that he thought to feed her. It saddened me greatly that she had no money to eat. I was hoping that once in Cabo Claudia could leave her troubles behind her but they just seemed to continue to dog her path. At every turn though Santiago was there to help her and encourage her, make her believe in herself again. I liked the way was laid out, as she didn't know who he was before falling in love with him. I know that she wouldn't have given him a chance if she knew he had money, for fear people would see her as a gold digger. It was an enjoyable meeting and I was pleased with the ending. Her ex-husband got what was coming to him....(no spoil alert here)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story about finding love again November 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Claudia Jefferies, an event planner, flies off to Cabo San Lucas to get away from her abusive husband, who has just been indicted on fraud and money laundering charges. Desperate for a new start, Claudia decides to keep her past a secret. During her vacation, she meets a really gorgeous guy named Santiago, who is everything her ex-husband wasn't. He is sweet, thoughtful, hardworking, kind and patient.
Soon Claudia finds herself in a whirl wind romance.

As soon as Santiago and Claudia decide that they love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together, all the secrets come tumbling out. Can their love survive the secrets?

This book surprised me. It wasn't as fluffy as I expected and the writing was pretty good. Both Santiago and Claudia obviously had trust issues or they wouldn't have hidden their past, but they are good people at heart, so I was rooting for them. I relly enjoyed Claudia's journey to new love and I loved how Santiago fought to prove his loyalty and steadfastness to her.
