  • Description

    She's the perfect wife and mother--and he's the perfect temptation.

    "A perfect summer cocktail of sex, sun, and scandal." --Kirkus Reviews

    Claire has a problem with setting limits. All her life she has taken on every responsibility, assumed every burden, granted every request. Claire wants it all--and in the eyes of her friends, she has it: a devoted husband, four beautiful children, even a successful career as an artist. So when she agrees to chair the committe for Nantucket's social event of the year, she knows she can handle it. Claire can handle anything.
    But when planning the gala propels her into the orbit of billionaire Lock Dixon, unexpected sparks begin to fly. Lock insists on working closely with Claire--often over a bottle of wine--and before long she can't ignore the subtle touches and lingering looks. To her surprise, she can't ignore how they make her feel, either. Claire finds the gala, her life, and herself spinning out of control.
    A Summer Affair captures the love, loss, and limbo of an illicit romance and unchecked passion as it takes us on a brave and breathless journey into the heart of one modern woman.


    • Depression and rambling

      By Cck1103
      I have loved every one of her other books and was looking forward to another good read. This book is so depressing and really showed no direction and made me feel tense the whole time. Most of the story was rambling with no clear reason. I didn't like this book at all.
    • Not impressed

      By Emmers123456
      Not a book I would suggest to anyone I know. I understand the author's intentions with this story but still don't think that adultery is a healthy way to solve problems in a relationship or deal with one's own problems within herself. Therefore I would not recommend this book!

      Loved this book! Couldn't put it down.
    • Ok, not great

      By mrs329
      This is my 2nd Hilderbrand book. I was looking for an easy summer read like "Barefoot" was. The story line was ok. The writing was a little disconnected for me. I read it when I had nothing else to do, or while sitting by the pool. But I found I could put it down, unlike "Barefoot".
    • Good read!
