Blake is shocked to see Taylor on his doorstep in the dead of night after so many years. He remembers her as a carefree young girl chasing ducks around the family estate. He, on the other hand, was always causing mischief with Taylor’s older brother Robert. When he invited Robert to join his private investigations firm, it was more of a lark than anything else. He never thought his best friend would go missing while on a case, and he certainly never expected to see Robert’s proper sister at his inn, The Hideaway, with a bruised eye and an air of desperation about her.
Blake can’t deny the beauty Taylor has become. But she’s his best friend’s little sister! How can he find Robert, solve this dangerous case, and protect Taylor, all while trying to ignore her captivating allure?
After all, he’s no hero . . . and he’s certainly no gentleman.
