Once knocked up by a conman, Ramona (“Raye”) Soto, now thirty-something, is concentrating on her career with a major telecommunications firm and funding college for her teenaged son. Desmond Emmett—a fast talker and smooth operator suddenly appears. New to the office, the ex-serviceman possesses every negative quality in a guy Raye should avoid.
Thrown together at a corporate retreat in the wilderness, the reluctant duo struggles to complete management’s extreme mental and physical tests for a huge reward. But only one can win the prize, and Des needs the money to underwrite medical treatments for his adored younger sister.
See-sawing between attraction and antagonism, the mismatched couple faces their biggest challenge: learning the meaning of true partnership. When a massive flash flood sweeps down the rocky canyon and threatens their love and survival, they must put aside their differences to rescue their colleagues—and their future as a couple.
