Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have just inherited Bishop's Cove, a charming oceanfront resort. But it comes with a condition: They must run the resort for one year and show a profit--only then will they own it.
Peyton welcomes the challenge, yet has no idea how many people want to sabotage her success--including her vindictive cousins and the powerful land developers who have an eye on the coveted beachfront property. But when the threats against Peyton escalate into dangerous territory, she enlists the help of her childhood friend, FBI agent Finn MacBain.
Finn saved her life once before. Peyton has no choice but to trust him to do it again.
