Nice Work if You Can Get It by Linda Morris
Coming soon from Swoon Romance!
Andrew Sheffield and Ally Arietta meet in paradise: Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They have nothing in common: He’s a workaholic CEO, embittered after the failure of his first marriage. She’s been caring for her ailing Sicilian grandmother who’s just passed away, and now she’s ready to put herself first for a change. The sparks fly, but Andrew is no easy guy to get along with. His workaholic ways have them bickering from the start, but Ally decides that doesn’t matter: It’s just a fling.
But when Ally nearly dies during a para-sailing accident, Andrew realizes she means much more to him than casual sex. The accident causes Ally to run scared: She’s vowed to put herself first after years of self-sacrifice. She breaks it off and returns to Chicago to resume the life she interrupted to care for her grandmother, but she hasn’t seen the last of Andrew, who is determined not to let her walk away.
Linda Morris is a multipublished writer of contemporary and historical romance. She writes stories with heart and heat. Her latest book, By Hook or By Crook, will be coming in winter of 2013 from the Wild Rose Press. When she's not writing, working, or mommying, she's doing yoga, reading, working in her flower garden, or baking delicious things she probably shouldn't eat. Her years of Cubs fandom prove she has a soft spot for a lost cause. A beat-up old copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's "Ashes in the Wind" that her mom bought for her at a garage sale years ago was her "gateway drug" into the world of romance novels. Her all-time favorite romance writers include Laura Kinsale, Patricia Gaffney, Elizabeth Delancey, and Marjorie Ferrell. Current favorites include Julie Anne Long, Erin McCarthy, and Shannon McKenna.
