Short Synopsis
Nalini Singh presents the first novel in the Hard Play series. Contains mature themes.

Full Synopsis
Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future—to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent . . . and kisses like pure sin.

Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener.

And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose—play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn't destroy her heart.

Contains mature themes.
