Heather Brown has never had an orgasm.
Well, at least not the man-made variety. Now, at twenty-five, she has decided it's time to deal with her little problem. Growing up, she was the skinny kid with boney knees and braces. Her brain had never really processed the change from ugly duckling to dove. She had't even brought herself to wear the sexier lingerie she sells at her store, Sweet Nothings.
But that was the old Heather...now there's a new girl in town.
With a little encouragement from her best friend, Brenda, Heather recreates herself. Now, she is ready to turn up the heat in her bedroom, and test her sexy new persona. She wants to have a once in a lifetime fling, throw caution to the wind, and discover a new side to herself. Deep down she knows, she has to find herself before she can give it to someone else.
There is just one problem; there was still only one man who had ever gotten her all hot and bothered. Finding someone else to fit the bill seemed an impossible task.
Enter Brad Carrington, Brenda's sexy brother. When Brad hears about Heather's plans to have a fling, he visits her, intent on discouraging her from her efforts. After all, she is like a kid sister to him, and he feels responsible for her now that her parents have passed away. But his visit takes an unexpected turn resulting in a kiss so steamy it sets them both on fire. Brad quickly gains his composure, reminding himself Heather is forbidden territory. Her parents trusted him. There are lines their past has drawn that simply can't be erased.
So what's a girl to do? When a guy plays it stubborn, she has to play it smart. Heather fights fire with fire setting the path to a planned seduction.
When push comes to shove, Brad decides he's the only man who has any business teaching Heather how to discover her secret sensual side. They strike a bargain, deciding to have a temporary, hush-hush, affair. But how do two people who ignite burning passion in one another turn back the clock and become just friends?
Some affairs are meant to last forever... though the path to forever for Heather and Brad means letting their history become their strength rather than a barrier.
