Ninety years ago, Millie Sullivan's great-grandmother was a guest at oil tycoon Howard Dawkins' palatial estate on the shore of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Now, Millie plays a 1920s-era guest during tours of the same manor. But when her grandmother suggests that there is a lost diary containing the location of a hidden treasure on the estate, along with the true identity of Millie's great-grandfather, Millie sets out to find the truth of her heritage--and the fortune that might be hers. When security guard Ben Thornton discovers her snooping in the estate's private library, he threatens to have her fired. But her story seems almost too ludicrous to be fiction, and her offer to split the treasure is too tempting to pass up . . .
Get ready for a romantic escapade through dark halls and dusty corners that will have you holding your breath and sighing with delight as two charming characters get caught up in the adventure of uncovering the past and finding their way to an unexpected future.
This escape was what she had. And she’d cling to it for as long as it made butterflies swoop in her stomach and love feel like it was within arm’s reach. Maybe she’d have to stretch, but all was not lost.
As Sir Robert pulled Gennie into his arms for one final kiss, the image of him in her mind morphed. She had never pictured him as a Fabio knockoff – more like that NFL quarterback who was way too good-looking for his own good, the one in all of those commercials. That was the face of Sir Robert when she’d read this book the first and second time.
But this time he looked different. His hair was shorter, cropped close over his ears but longer in front, a few curls just evident. His eyes were so blue that they rivaled Georgia’s summer sky. His chin wasn’t square by pointed. And his grin – it was both wry and crooked.
She knew that face. And Ben had absolutely no business showing up in her mind when she was reading about a medieval knight. The two had nothing in common.
Except for brilliant smiles, expressive eyes, and a forgiving heart. There was that.
She tried to keep reading, but suddenly Gennie didn’t look a bit like the fierce maiden on the cover. She looked a whole lot like the image Millie saw when she looked in the mirror. And when Sir Robert swept Gennie into his arms. . . well, suddenly Millie was the one being swept away. By Ben. Her Ben.
Nope. Not hers. Not at all. Not even a little bit.
Are you intrigued yet? I didn’t even have to try to find an excerpt – this one jumped off the first page I opened to.
