The key to sun, sand, and sin is total surrender…
Carrie Marsh is on her Key West honeymoon—alone. After discovering her fiancé fooling around with a bridesmaid on her wedding day, she figures the trip will help her clear her head and move on. But she doesn't expect inspiration to appear in the form of a tan, sexy boat captain ready to introduce her to the island's legendary, free-spirited debauchery.
Carrie isn't the first beach bunny that hard-working, harder-playing Chris McCann has partied with, but peeling away her innocence to find her inner bad girl affects him like no one has before. Her sexual awakening burns hotter than the Key West sun, melting his resistance and incinerating any hope he has of keeping their relationship casual.
All too soon, Carrie's return to reality is a plane ride away and neither of them is ready for the fantasy to end. But Carrie has a business to return to, and Chris's livelihood is on the island. And besides, Carrie is just beginning to recover from the wedding that wasn't, and Chris isn't a settling-down kind of guy. So it only makes sense to leave the sun, sand, and sensuality of the island.
