Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom - and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotion - but only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidy ...but her pity isn't one of them. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignity - and maybe the woman he's hungry to claim once more. Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams - until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn't letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behind - and who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw's seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it's for the highest stakes of all.
