About the author:
Although Emma Barron has always been a creative writer, she took a rather circuitous path to become a published author.
As an undergraduate studying biology, Emma did a stint as a field assistant researching stream ecology in Venezuela, where she slept in a hammock in the woods, was awakened every morning by hooting howler monkeys, and was attacked by killer bees. She followed this up with another research stint in South Africa studying tuberculosis in cape buffalo, where she helped radio collar the buffalo from a helicopter, was chased by petulant teenage elephants, and was awakened by zebra "marking" her tent.
After graduation, Emma traded those adventures for a jungle of a different kind: the beast-eat-beast world of law school and DC law firms. She began writing full novels for the first time as a way to escape the stress of her legal studies, and continued to write while she worked in the legal field. She was completely hooked, but wasn't ready to believe she could turn her passion into a career. When her husband got a job in upstate New York, Emma took time off to raise their young daughter, and realized it was the perfect time to concentrate on writing. Here's to the start of a brand new adventure...
Rachel Hoffman is a smart and talented economics journalist, but a lay-off forces her to take a job with a NYC gossip magazine to make ends meet. When she's assigned to spend a week with Leo Hanlon, the intensely private CEO of a private jet company, she assumes it will be just another run-of-the mill interview. The one thing she doesn't know: her boss has led the notoriously press-shy Leo to believe the resulting story will be a business profile, not a gossip article.
Leo Hanlon hates doing publicity, but with his company still reeling from a PR nightmare, he knows he can't afford to say no to what he believes is a write-up in a major economics magazine. As they jet from the high rises of Manhattan to the sandy beaches of a tropical island, Rachel and Leo realize the simple business agreement is developing into something far more complicated. They can't deny their mutual attraction, but similar past tragedies have left them both reluctant to share their hearts with anyone. Can they overcome their fears to find happiness together? Or will the discovery of someone else's lie tear them apart forever?
