Summary

A contemporary romantic suspense by Pamela Beason, winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award for excellence in Mystery/Suspense.

 
ELISA’S IN TROUBLE…  

Elisa Langston is the obvious choice to take over the Langston Green plant nursery after her father's sudden death. Her beautiful blond stepsister Charlie and stepmother Gail manage the family’s flower shops, while Elisa feels more at home driving a backhoe.  

 

But after Elisa takes charge, Langston Green is hit by a wave of disasters: vandalism, arson, an earthquake. Money is stolen and the main building is burned to the ground. As the business hurtles towards failure, Elisa feels more desperate with each passing day. Can things get any worse?  

 

AND JAKE'S OUT TO NAIL HER…  

Jake Street remembers fiery Elisa from high school, where he secretly lusted after her. He’s glad she doesn't recall the little geek he was then. Now he's a muscular ex-detective turned insurance investigator, determined to do a good job on this last case before he enters the FBI. Repeated damage claims from Langston Green point toward insurance fraud and the evidence is quickly stacking up against Elisa.  

 

Elisa's exotic Latina charms may still be alluring, but if she's a criminal, she certainly won’t get any special treatment; Jake will make sure she ends up in handcuffs.

    Callie Westwood loves everything about The Treasure Trove, an antique shop she has practically run for the past four years. The store is more than just a building to her, it’s a place where she has built her fondest memories. That all changes when the original owner and dearest friend passes away and the deed falls into the hands of the gorgeous, but cold Jaxon Carter. 
    Jaxon isn’t about to let another person control him the way his ex-wife did. Especially not someone as beautiful and alluring as the petite woman standing between him and selling The Treasure Trove. Jaxon has plans of his own and none of them include a chestnut beauty with the face of an angel. 
    When a secret, well-written will throws the two of them into a battle of resolve, Callie must decide what is more important to her: her passion or her pride? The fact that Jaxon is as stunning as he is handsome doesn’t make matters any easier in Callie’s Dilemma.
