Darkly handsome with an arrogant edge, architectural engineer Scout Ritland is the kind of American man who spells trouble. Chantal duPont should know, for she has experienced the best and worst of the country and its peopleâincluding one who broke her heart. Yet here she is, home on sultry Parrish Island, putting herself in the way of another bold Yankee. This time, however, itâs for a good cause: Scout is the one man who can help her village, and sheâs not about to let him get the better of herâno matter how much she may want to.
Fresh from completing his work on the islandâs new luxury resort, Scoutâs ready for a little recreationâthough being kidnapped and shot isnât on his agenda. But when he catches sight of an exotic beauty with electric blue eyes, events quickly spin out of control. Scout should be outraged to find himself held captive, but an abductor as alluring as Chantal makes it hard to stay angry.
Soon Scout is swept up by Chantalâs need to help her peopleâand the role he is to play in her ambitious plan. With each passing day, the work and the woman present him with challenges he could never find at home. But as the project progresses, intrigue and adventure burn hotter than the islandâs volcanoâand two people who have met their match in each other face a future that could tear them apart....

My favorite quote:
"He was staring with awe and wonder at this powerful force of nature which seemed to have a distinct personality. From its mouth it spewed fire. The lava runs were red rivulets that crawled down the slopes of the cone. The air thundered with each fiery belch. The ground vibrated beneath them."Goda'mighty," Scout said in awe, "it's magnificent, isn't it?""I love it.""Just think, the material it's spitting out will be here millions of years from now. We're witnessing a birth."
