Author: Cassandra Gold

By day, I am a middle school teacher. I spend much of my time grading papers, filling out paperwork, and trying to get 6th- and 7th- graders to read.

When I am not at work, I can generally be found at the computer, dreaming up stories about men falling in love. When I have spare time (which is unfortunately not too often anymore!) I read romance of all kinds.

Occasionally I pretend to do housework, but my hubby isn't fooled!

Photographer Skyler Spencer comes to Key West for his brother's wedding expecting to take some pictures, act as best man, and maybe spend a little time getting to know his brother's fiancee and her twin sister. Then he learns that not only is the twin a man rather than a woman, but it's a man he's met before--under less than appropriate circumstances.

Casey Baker doesn't expect the guy he once had a memorable encounter in a club bathroom with to turn up as his brother-in-law to be, but he's able to deal with the surprise. Dealing with the strong attraction they feel for each other is a lot more difficult. Casey figures a short, hot fling will take care of that. Too bad he's not good at staying detached, and Skyler's not good at commitment.

When Mother Nature and the past combine to put the wedding in jeopardy, Skyler and Casey have more than just their own confused feelings to deal with. Will the weekend end with two sets of broken hearts?
