Billionaire Ryan King has always thrived on danger. Both personally and professionally, Ryan has always been an adrenaline junkie who loved nothing more than living life on the edge - until a tragic accident nearly cost him everything. Now reduced to walking with a pronounced limp, the reckless magnate who would induce fear and admiration with a mere quirk of an eyebrow is subjected to pity by those who used to cower in his presence. Ryan wants to be the man he was before the accident, so he heads to Cornwall and gets ready to hit the waves on his surfboard -and nearly drowns! Luckily for him, he is rescued by a gorgeous female lifeguard who reawakens feelings in him he thought long-buried.
Maddy is also in Cornwall licking her wounds after a bad break-up. She is working as a lifeguard and a part-time waitress in a bayside cafe - and has sworn off relationships. She always ends up getting used and would much rather be alone than be subjected to another messy break-up. Maddy is very happy with her resolution - until she rescues Ryan King!
Maddy knows that she should give Ryan a wide berth. But when he kisses her, she finds herself unable to resist the sexy billionaire and a steamy affair quickly ensues. Theirs was meant to be a no strings arrangement. But poor Maddy is in for a shock when she finds herself falling for Ryan...
Does Ryan reciprocate Maddy's feelings? Or will his fear of commitment spoil things for them?
