He saved Peyton Lockhart’s life when they were kids - but now she’s all grown up and he’s a seasoned FBI agent who comes to her rescue again in the new contemporary romance from number-one New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood.
Peyton and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with conditions: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit - only then will they own it.
A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic after rightfully accusing her boss of sexual harassment. Out of work and in a bad place personally, to Peyton a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful. Peyton dives into learning the resort business but is quickly derailed by an escalating chain of events that puts her life in danger. She refuses to be intimidated - until she’s nearly killed. Then she calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. Finn is more than happy to do a favor for Peyton, but he doesn’t plan on dealing with the beautiful, passionate woman she has become.
There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop Peyton and her sisters from succeeding. Among them are their contentious cousins and a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property. And it also becomes apparent that her old boss holds a serious grudge and believes in payback.
While the attraction between Peyton and Finn flames bright enough to distract them both from their dangerous situation, a happily ever after ending seems all but impossible. But the well-trained lawman never loses focus: He saved her life once; now he must do it again.

This was a fun summer book that I enjoyed. I liked the plot and characters in this book.
Yes. Narrator did a great job with this book. Storyline was fresh and original.
I enjoyed the entire book. The humor was good.
I've never ready anything by this author. Although I have heard great things about her. This book was a great intro to her style of writing. highly recommended.
Great characters and the story keeps you guessing with different twists. I was shocked by some of the cluelessness of a few characters. I really enjoyed this book.
Loved this one, it's the best one in the series since several books back. I have listened to all this series and love them all but this one's great
Enjoyed book, humor was unexpected. It added to overall plot as it developed. Story was too simplistic, as were characters . But still enjoyed. Didn't care for narrator at all. May be part of reason plot seem too simple.
I've listened to this entire series and I was very disappointed. Unfortunately once I start a book I cannot stop until I know how it ends. It was not worth my time. Very disappointed.
