Ebony MacKenzie has a shot at leaving the rag of a weekly where she works and snagging a full-time staff position at the Cincinnati Examiner if she can secure an exclusive interview with Reuben Renfro, The Ice Cream King. Unfortunately, the assignment involves pursuing the elusive millionaire to his favorite haunt, a nudist colony. At the same time Ebony is pursuing Renfro, reporter Isaiah Malone is also offered a promotion to a full-time staff position at the Cincinnati Examiner if he can lock up an interview with Renfro. He's no more pleased with Renfro's hangout than Ebony. And when these two competitors run into each other at the Shangri-La Naturist Retreat, it becomes harder and harder to keep their sights on Renfro, instead of each other.
This book got off to a fast start and kept up a merry pace throughout. The hero and heroine are both very engaging, the romance is passionate, and the story delightfully funny. If you like romantic comedy, you'll be thrilled with this new gem to add to your collection.
