Description: Paradise is nothing if you choose to enjoy it alone. When Shelby Meyer jetted off for a relaxing week in Cancun, she never expected to fall in love with the quaint piece of Mexican heaven. Or make on offer to buy it. The Paradise Cove, a run-down Cancun resort, is in desperate need of TLC. Shelby can easily envision the resort as it was in its heyday and sees its potential. She vows to do everything in her power to return it to its former glory. Though the previous owners' grandson, Gabriel, insists that she will destroy his family's resort, and a neighboring resort owner doubts in her ability, Shelby's resolve strengthens. But when she finds her lists of repairs and the stack of bills piling up around her, hope begins to fade. Will she swallow her pride and accept Gabriel's love and financial help, or be forced to give up her dream of Paradise Cove? Warning: Contains brief sexuality.

Shelby sat quiet as she cleaned her wounds, Gabriel's eyes burning her skin. If this resort meant so much to him, why was he in San Antonio instead of Cancun?
"Well, I care about this place enough to give it the attention it deserves, even if I'm not an Espinoza."
"Are you implying that I don't care?"
"If you did, why weren't you here years ago, helping your grandparents take care of the place?"
His top lip curled and his voice rose a few decibels. "I was making a career for myself."
"If I had the sweetest grandparents on the planet, I would have dropped everything to be at their side when they needed me."
"I was doing what I had to do. You have no idea what you're talking about." He slammed the first aid kit onto the table. "If you had minded your own business and left my grandparents alone, none of this would be happening right now. I'll be shocked if you don't run this place completely into the ground." He stood up.
Shelby stood too, matching the fire in his ocean blue eyes. "You just wait. I'll make your grandparents proud."
