A match-making aunt and a mischievous spirit do their best to pair Erin and Rick…
Looking for a place to belong, Erin Silvestri arrives in the small mining town of Argent Springs to visit her long-lost aunt’s Victorian brothel-turned-Bed & Breakfast. But she soon discovers it’s not the former madam of the house who haunts her the most. Instead, it’s the B&B’s handsome yet mysterious handyman waylaying her plans for a homey reunion.
Erin wants a new start, while Rick still clings to the past…
Stalwart, hardworking Rick Hartigan wants nothing more than to do his job and be left alone while he awaits the return of his former love. But as his former love balks, his current employer seems hell-bent to pair him with her too-tempting niece.
Does the couple stand a ghost of a chance?
With the return of Rick’s girlfriend, Erin fears she may lose everything she’s come to love.
The request is simple. Seduce a handsome loner, drug him, and steal the rare alexandrite he keeps hidden in his home high in the hills above L.A. If gemologist Kate London succeeds, she’ll save her sister and be able to resume the rest of her quiet life in the small mountain town of Argent Springs.
Nicholas Devere never expected the beautiful, mysterious woman to steal his treasured heirloom. He lost his family to a malicious curse, and he can’t bear to lose his precious stone, too. Nicholas can choose to help the woman or punish her for her crime, but his choice may cost him more than he expects.
