Deena Montgomery thought nothing could be more shocking than losing her prominent cardiologist husband to a sudden, massive heart attack. She was wrong.

Turns out the eminent physician had a mistress and an illegitimate child. And instead of leaving her a wealthy widow, he left her penniless and, worse, responsible for much of his debt. Upon leaving her estate home with only the personal items she could fit in a small rental car, a question popped into her head:

“What’s the craziest thing I can do?”

Once settled in a tiny studio apartment in South Beach, she finds her answer in a classified ad.

“Wanted: Women Models Age 45–55. New Lingerie Line for Mature Women.”

Photographer Ben Hoddi, known in certain circles as Hoddi the Hottie, spotted the raven-haired beauty he wanted for his model the moment he saw her photo comps. He knew the woman unwittingly responsible for ruining his first career was going to be the catalyst for the successful launch of the new Madame B Lingerie campaign. When Deena steps in the room, he realizes the woman he’ll never forget doesn’t recognize him.

But the sparks begin to fly as more experienced models vie for the spokesperson role. Can Hoddi help Deena without revealing his secret? Can the disillusioned and heartbroken Deena resist the charms of the handsome, magnetic photographer? Miami Beach never felt as scorching hot as under the spotlight where Deena now stands.
