A great example of what makes Harlequin Desire so terrific - AN INNOCENT IN PARADISE was a wonderful romance. Logan and Grace were well drawn characters with rich lives. Logan is smart and athletic, a genuinely nice man, but he's leery of love because his mother abandoned him and his twin brother when they were young. Of course he doesn't trust women - he was betrayed by the one woman who was supposed to love him no matter what!

Grace is a brainy scientist who has been sheltered in academia her w...more
Good book. Grace was very smart, and very sheltered. Thanks to her incredible intelligence, she has spent most of her life in an academic environment, and has no experience with male-female relationships. But there was a reason she was on the island, and she had no intention to leave before she accomplished it. Logan had a cynical distrust of women, thanks to his late wife. But he had wanted Grace from the time he met her, and intended to enjoy a fling with her for as long as she stayed. The mor...more

So I am still starting to dip my toes into reading some more adult books and I saw this sitting on the shelf at my library so I said why not. I liked the cover and the story intrigued me so I checked it out. I am glad I did. It was a quick but enjoyable read. Sometimes (okay most of the time) with shorter books I feel like I don’t get everything I want out of it. I always feel like there isn’t enough time to connect to the characters, things happen to...more

An Innocent in Paradise by Kate Carlisle
Logan Sutherland and his twin own the whole Carribean island and the buildings on it.
Grace Farrell works as a waitress for their bar til she tips all the drinks over and Logan rescues
the rest. He finds out she's never done this type of work but is willing to do any job he wants her to so she can continue her research into the rare spores that are on the island for medical research.
He's given her one week to learn the job or she's off the island.
He starts t...more

I won this as a first-reads! Thank you so much!

Grace and Logan were complete opposites...she was the nerdy-smart scientist who spent all her time in the lab (but she was gorgeous) and he was the rich surfer type guy who owned an entire island. But they worked so well together! They're relationship (that they were denying being something that was real and could be lasting) was moving along great. In fact, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. And wrongly enough, I figured it would be Logan's...more
I really enjoyed reading this book. I think the characters were well written and the descriptions of Alleria and everything else kept me captivated. Grace's really intelligent, smart and independent. Her sheltered life as a child genius justifies the reaction's she has later in the story. Logan sounds like a dreamy guy, though one instance in the book had me cringing for a while. Overall, the read was enjoyable and fun.
This is such a good read I loved the romance between Logan and Grace and of course there is the releationship between Logan and his twin brother Aiden which adds to the story. A real page turner and I am looking forward to Aiden's story
