SYNOPSIS: Makenna Stewart flees Scotland for the Big Island of Hawaii intent on making real a cherished dream-a bakery of her own. Hard work and long hours leave Makenna craving some fun I her life. Her best customer, Greek-god sexy surfer Tom may be just what she needs, but she suspects there’s more to him than board shorts and a devastating smile.
Retired professional surfer and real-estate multi-millionaire Tom Bensford, is there when she opens every morning, but he’s not craving her Morning Glory muffins. Fascinated by the dark-haired, blue-eyed wahine with the creamy Celtic skin and devastating Scottish accent, he’s never met a woman like her. Too bad he’s about to destroy her dreams.
To him, it’s just business. To her, it’s the kind of betrayal she fled Scotland to escape. Can the island magic in Makenna’s heritage save her dream and their romance, or will his secret tear them apart?
REVIEW: I loved this story. The two characters kept me engaged in the story. I was cheering them on but couldn’t feel a little betrayed by Tom too. He was keeping a big secret and should have confided in Makenna.
Makenna’s has wanted her own bakery and now the man she loves may be selling the property out from under her. She is crushed by this betrayal. Tom hates it but doesn’t know how to solve this problem. He tries to come up with another solution which proves to Makenna how much he cares about her.
I highly recommend this book.
