In his world, money is the one thing you can count on. In hers, it ruins everything. They have one week to find out who’s right—or both lose what matters most. After being derailed for too many years, Auburn Campbell is back on track. She’s living in the town she loves and running the inn that is her destiny. But it all falls apart when a bossy billionaire shows up with plans to tear down her beloved Beachcrest and build soulless beachfront condos. No way she’s going to be a sucker again for a strong-willed man in an expensive suit, no matter how good he makes it look. For as long as Trey Xavier can remember, money is the one thing he can count on—especially since the end of his marriage. And the future he’s fought to build for himself and his family is on the line. He just has to figure out what to do about Auburn Campbell, his grandfather’s protege, who is determined to throw every possible obstacle in his way. It would be easier to win the battle if he weren’t constantly distracted by her quick wit, her non-stop curves, and his body’s reaction to being in the same room with her. Summer in Tierney Bay is irresistible and town and innkeeper slowly seduce Trey. When the sparks between them flare hotter and brighter than any Fourth of July fireworks, can he surrender more than just money?
