Getting Rough picks up right where the pulse-pounding conclusion of Playing Dirty leaves off. Cassidy Whalen, the sexy Irish-American sports agent, has been vying for a partnership position with Striker Sports Entertainment against the gorgeous but self-entitled Shaw Matthews, and the competition gets so heated that it leads them behind closed doors and everywhere in-between, every chance they get. But with the promotion still on the table, Cassidy is forced to drop everything when a tragedy strikes and calls her back home. Shaw's not going to let her off the hook that easy. He shows up at her door fuming about her quick departure and how slighted he feels that Cassidy handed him the partnership that she'd worked so hard to secure. Seeing Shaw there and numb with grief over her father's death, Cassidy is desperate to feel something real--something that makes her forget. Soon the two are enmeshed in a tangle of passion and emotion, moving faster and faster into unfamiliar territory, and suddenly seeing each other in a different light. But when reality comes calling in more ways than one, Cassidy and Shaw will both have to confront the question of where their hearts and their obligations truly lie.
Reserved, honourable Mr Malik. You wouldn't notice him in a Nairobi street - except, perhaps, to comment on his carefully sculpted comb-over - but beneath his unprepossessing exterior lie a warm heart and a secret passion. Not even his closest friends know it, but Mr Malik is head-over-heels in love with the leader of the local Tuesday-morning bird walk, Rose Mbikwa. Little can he imagine the hurdles that lie before him. Even as he plucks up the courage to ask for Rose's hand, thieves, potential kidnappers and corrupt officials, not to mention one particularly determined love rival, seem destined to thwart Mr Malik's chances. Will an Indian gentleman in the heart of Africa be defeated by the many obstacles that stand between him and his heart's desire? Or will honour and decency prevail?
