Black Girls and Bad Boys: The Playboy's Conscience
Rosa's off on a big adventure doing voluntary work in Brazil after finishing her degree. She flies out to Rio wanting to change the world, but crashes into an arrogant local with a personality a lot less appealing than his brooding good looks.
Fico has been working hard to put his family's significant fortunes back on track after the death of his father. He's almost there when he bumps into a fiery English girl who is far too idealistic for his liking and ends up volunteering in a day-care centre alongside her.
Mutual attraction overcomes their differing politics, and it isn't long before they spend a passionate night together. But then a misunderstanding sets them on a collision course.
Fico vows to teach her a lesson she won't forget, but his plans end in tragedy and they both end up hurt in more ways than one.
Rosa moves on to Argentina, but she can't put the past behind her, and neither can Fico. Will they ever be able to overcome their differences and find happiness in each others' arms?
