Jenna needs an infusion of fast cash to buy Muir House before her rival does. Worse she feels attracted to the one person who could destroy her dream as he has the loot to make a bid for Muir House. However, though business wise he knows he should tender the proposal, his feelings for Jenna keeps him from completing his assignment.

Anyone who peruses the opening line will be hooked to read this tale, the previous one (see THE LAST BRIDE IN BALLYMUIR), and the upcoming tale (hopefully starring the sister of the first novel's hero). The story line lives up to the fabulous opening as the audience obtains a fine contemporary romance starring two likable lead characters. The support cast is solid, but Jenna and Dev make the tale as their goals place them in opposition to the desires of their respective hearts.
