Jetta Rivers is now the owner of half a dilapidated bungalow. Big problem: her past has left her terrified of men, and she’s forced to share the house with the unknown co-owner. Architect Anton has plans to demolish, rebuild, and make a million bucks. Jetta is determined to renovate, remember her Gran, and stay well out of Anton’s reach. A midnight disaster changes everything and he carries her, screaming, to sleep in the only safe bed in the damaged house – his.
Although she knows he plans to smash her inheritance to pieces, Jetta admits Anton has so far behaved honorably. As she gets to know her handsome housemate better, she wonders if he could be the man she needs to put her crippling fear to rest. Taking courage in both hands, she turns their shaky living arrangement on its head by shyly producing her grandmother’s ancient copy of The Joy of Sex.
But how is Anton entitled to half the house? The unexpected answer makes Jetta flee halfway round the world.
