ONCE UPON A STORMY NIGHT
by Zee Monodee
British billionaire Lars Rutherford came to the tiny island of Mauritius to take over directorship of his best friend’s shipping company. He’s not here for anything but the job, or- to the chagrin of the many matchmaking society mamas in the country- to find the ‘right woman’ for him.
Corporate legal affairs specialist Simmi Moyer is rich, beautiful, successful, and climbing the executive ladder with tremendous speed. She’s got it all- or does she? Mauritian society shuns her for being single and childless, and nothing she accomplishes will ever be enough.
The tempest, brewed by uncalled-for yearning in their hearts and the desire for something more substantial than one night of pleasure, builds between them, while outside, a real-life cyclone storms the island and ensconces them in a world where only the two of them exist.
