As a social blogger, Ronnie Flynn—aloof, beautiful, cool as a cucumber—is desperate to get to the society event of the year: Simon and Sadie’s engagement party on Seguro Island. No surprise that her name isn’t on the guest list, but as always, Ronnie has a backup plan. A plan that involves the handsome Del Franklin.
Del agrees to a swap: Ronnie gives him the scoop on his estranged wife’s dirty secrets and he takes her as his date to his boss’s party. The handsome, buff man of Italian descent makes only one condition: Ronnie better be good. No snooping. No manipulating. No digging for dirt. Or else.
With crossed fingers, and in spite of Del’s threat of putting her over his knee for disobeying, Ronnie ‘promises’ to be a good girl. Right. She’s not worried about Del. Her code of Keeping a Healthy Distance will protect her heart, and her backside. She’s too wily to get caught, anyway.
Ronnie sees. Literally. She can channel people’s feelings and see into their hearts. All her life, she has been hiding this secret weapon—her psychic ability—because what she sees is often too hard understand and impossible to share. If she can handle that secret, surely she can handle Del. Or can she? He’s not like anyone else. Nothing has prepared her for him. She shouldn’t react like this to his dominance. She’s an independent, wealthy woman in her own right. No man will tell her what to do. Yet, there is something about this sexy dominant Latin lover that makes her pulse race.
Will Ronnie allow Del to break her Code of Keeping a Healthy Distance? Will seeing Ronnie open Del’s eyes to a new world? Will the two of them ever see life the same way?

Top Ten Ways to Keep Your Easter Chocolate for Yourself
Normally I’m a caring and sharing kind of person but everyone has their limits. Chocolate is mine.
With Easter just around the corner, here are my top ten ways to keep my Easter chocolate for myself:
- Take one bite out of each chocolate. (my personal favourite)
- If you can’t bear to see them mutilated with heads bitten off, spit on each one and leave a note saying so.
- Say the dog ate them, right after he finished eating the kids’ homework. Dogs should never have chocolate but you’re not really going to give it to him anyway.
- When people ask where is the chocolate, act innocent. “Chocolate? What chocolate? Does someone around here have chocolate?”
- Eat it all yourself as soon as you get it. (not recommended)
- Slip it into a book safe and hide it between the Jane Austens.
- Buy a second, identical supply and hide your private stash somewhere that no one will ever look, like in the cleaning supplies. That way you can appear to be generous and sharing without having to give up as much as a single tiny egg.
- Hide it in plain sight. A half egg filled with cotton pads may just look like a new bathroom accessory.
- Drape fake spider webs over it. Works best if accompanied by a realistic-looking plastic spider.
- Stow it with old tax returns. No one ever gives those a second look.
1.When Ronnie was a child, her mother called her a stór mo chroi (treasure of my heart), Bonnie Raitt sings the Irish ballad beautifully.
2.Ronnie has always kept her private life secret. So when she starts to date Del, she risks gossip and speculation. She’d no shrinking violet. Bonnie’s Raitt’s song Something to Talk About summarizes her attitude.
3.When Del meets Ronnie she has suppressed her own life for so long it’s almost as though she doesn’t know who she is of what she’s capable of. Del senses that Ronnie is a Firework (Katy Perry), waiting to let her candle burn.
4. Del turns Ronnie’s world upside down. Soon she’s thinking of little else. Miss Chatelaine by kd lang captures that obsession perfectly:
5. There are many versions of St James Infirmary / Gamblers’ Blues but my favorite is this one by Dave Van Ronk. I can easily imagine confident, sexy Del singing the refrain:
“Let her go, let her go, God bless her, wherever she may be. She may search this wide world over. Never find a sweet man like me.”
I know it’s meant to be a dark song but to me the chorus is so upbeat, so full of male hubris, it makes me smile every time I hear it.
6. By the end of the book, Ronnie cannot believe her luck in having found a man like Del. If she could sing in tune, she’d try Lullaby by the Dixie Chicks.
7. Del is looking for a Hard-Headed Woman like the one Cat Stevens sung about all those years ago. Yes he wants a submissive, but someone who is only submissive to him:
8. Ronnie is frugal. She likes things that last and can be repurposed. She’s a devotee of thrift store shopping. Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis could be her theme song.
9. Hanky Spanky by Madonna. Ronnie quickly learns to appreciate a good spanking.
10. Whenever, Wherever by Shakira. Just because.
11. Foreigner – Waiting for a Girl Like You – Del doesn’t realize what he’s been waiting for until he meets Ronnie.
12. Beyoncé – Naughty Girl. Of course.
13. Addicted to Love – I like the Florence + the Machine version.
14. Stevie Wonder – I Just Called to Say I Love You. This is what Del wants to do frequently.
15. Every Breath You Take – by The Police. Del has to stop himself from obsessing over Ronnie too much.
