 Riviera Benson’s past has been nothing but horrific. It’s filled with secrets that she intends to keep tightly locked away...terrifying secrets that keep her awake at night...that prevent her from getting close to anyone...anyone that is, until her work as a muralist drives her into the arms of the hot and sexy Shan.

Benjamin Shandon, owner of Shandon Homes, works like a thousand demons are chasing him...because perhaps they are. His business has boomed, ever since the forest fire swept through the canyon and destroyed hundreds of million dollar homes. He demands excellence in everything...from his employees to his women. He slows down for nothing, keeping a schedule that no sane person would want. But Riviera interrupts everything, twisting his guts inside out, and wedging her way into his heart, destroying a promise he made to himself.

Will they let their pasts control their future, or will they decide to let go and allow their hearts to discover each other’s?

Riviera noticed his smoldering eyes and mistook his look for anger.  "Have I done something wrong?" she quickly asked.  He blew out the breath he'd been holding and said, "Not if you think moving like an angel is wrong.  I was...Riviera, you don't need to hear what I was thinking." (Kindle Location 1220)

I'm liking this one despite it being in 3rd person.  Really like Shan.  What about you?  Have a teaser for me?  Leave me a comment.
