The evening Marek Sumner opened his door to the wild-looking Felicity Powers, he knew nothing would ever be the same again. But even love and passion couldn’t keep them together.
Years later, having lived in the world’s most dangerous places as a foreign aid worker, Felicity is back, still offering love, passion, and adventure. But why would Marek risk having his heart broken a second time? Now a well-known author, he loves his calm, solitary life in an isolated farmhouse. He and Felicity are just too different; their relationship could never work.
But Felicity is just as fascinating and joyful as ever, and that wonderful sexy magic is still there too. Can love be better the second time around?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always wondered what would happen if ex-lovers met face to face years later – especially if they had loved each other very much when they separated. I also love writing about very strong characters, not people obsessed by consumer goods, but those who have ideals, who are determined to pursue their dreams. I must add, perhaps, that this is definitely a love story: yes, Felicity and Marek have always loved each other but, as the author, I wanted to create two characters I could also fall in love with: cranky and difficult, but also warm, alive and funny.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters are based on myself, my own experiences, my observation of people, the people I admired, who amused me and inspired me. They are like all of us, with faults and charm.
Marek sat in the armchair by the window, his face tight, his eyes haunted. “I’m sitting here, in a chair, right? Aren’t the words ‘a quick getaway’ somewhat of an exaggeration?” He drawled the words out slowly, mockingly.
“Okay then. A slow getaway.”
He stared at her, unable to pull his eyes away. Her face was pale, her expression wild. Loose tendrils of hair shadowed her neck, calling attention to the slow throb of veins under the delicate skin. She looked sexy as hell. Tempting and far too dangerous to think about.
“Not quick, not slow. Neither one of the above. No getaway.” His voice was icy, impersonal.
“That!” Her arm waved wildly, gesticulated in the direction of the suitcase. A sharp, searing feeling of betrayal mixed with humiliation kept her tense, unrelenting. “I mean, if you want me out of here, all you have to do is tell me. Since you’re obviously desperate to get rid of me.” She felt as if she’d been stabbed. She crossed the room slowly until she was standing beside him, staring down at him, her eyes flashing with determination and fury. “But let’s not forget you were the one who invited me up here. Remember? I didn’t ask to be put up in your hotel room.”
But you might have done so. If he hadn’t taken matters into his own hands. Well, never again. Never. Your time is up as far as I’m concerned, Marek Sumner!
He stood up, studied her for a minute, silently.
“God, you’re beautiful.” It was as if the words had been wrenched out of him, as if he would have given anything not to say them, but they made her heart stand still.
