you made a fool of death with your beauty

It's the hottest book of the Summer, promised to be *the* book to be spotted with at poolsides the world over. So get that margarita on ice, pull up a deckchair and sink into this Summer's most sizzling read.

It's the opportunity of a lifetime: Feyi is about to be given the chance to escape the City's blistering heat for a dream island holiday: poolside cocktails, beach sunsets, and elaborate meals. And as the sun goes down on her old life our heroine also might just be ready to open her heart to someone new. The only problem is, she's falling for the one man she absolutely can't have.
