Kayla doesn’t do bad boys – in any sense of the word. It’s a personal rule of hers, and for good reason. Bad boys have a tendency to leave scars and dust trails in their wake, and Kayla isn’t running short on either. So when Daren Ackwood rolled up to her late father’s funeral in his shiny sports car with sex and charisma coming off him in waves, Kayla knew she needed to keep a wide distance from him for the duration of her brief stay in this tiny, God-forsaken town. She was here to take care of her father’s will, nothing more. But it seems taking care of her father’s will might just mean spending some quality time with Daren – a prospect she wishes didn’t turn her on so much.
Daren didn’t like the old man and had no idea why the bastard mentioned him in his will at all. But never being one to turn down a few dollars, Daren still showed up at the executor’s office and awaited his payout with a bored expression. But when the sexiest thing on two legs walked in, saw him, and decided she hated him immediately, daddy dearest’s death became a whole hell of a lot more interesting. With money on the line and a feisty brunette to keep his eyes entertained, Daren agrees to the terms of the will. But when items goes missing and mysterious letters show up, the will turns out to be more of a scavenger hunt, and neither Kayla nor Daren are willing to give up the treasure – even if that means sticking by one another’s side every minute of every day. Literally.
