Return to the Palekaiko Resort in book two of the Hawaii Heat series by USA Today Bestselling Author, Jamie K. Schmidt.
Lawyer Michaela Harris just got jilted at the altar and her family is blaming her for the fiasco. Her ex-fiancé’s cold feet was more about the corporate merger between their two families, rather than their wedding, but both deals went down the crapper anyway.
While her legal team is sorting through the mess, Michaela takes a much needed sabbatical on the beaches of Maui. She spends her days surfing and her nights ditching calls from everyone. She hasn’t completely gone off the grid. She’s staying at one of her father’s hotels and using her gold card. If they really wanted to find her, she’d be easy to track down. But right now, it’s just surf, sand, and a really hot guy.
Marcus Kincaide is mesmerized from the moment he sees Michaela on her board in dangerous surf conditions. But she handles it like a pro and he is taken aback when she asks him out for dinner and gives him the best night of sex in his entire life. After that, he sees her every day during his morning jog, and during his afternoon swim and every night in his bed. But she always leaves before morning though, and he begins to worry about her. When he catches her rummaging through a trash can — she said it was because she dropped her ring in it — he offers her a job at the hotel his family is renovating. She’d make a great surf instructor.
Michaela can’t believe the arrogant, but gorgeous man she’s been crushing on all week thinks she’s homeless. Although, it tickles her to take the job he offers, especially as it gives her more time alone with him. However, her island fantasy is coming to a close. Her ex finally found his balls or rather he figured out it was cheaper to marry her and merge companies than be sued five ways to Sunday. But it turns out, she’s no longer interested in marrying him. Only her ex isn’t the only one not taking no for an answer, her father gives her an ultimatum: Come back home and marry the ex — or he’ll do everything in his power to crush the Kincaide’s hotel renovation.
