$30.99

Paperback
Lively and Humorous Historical Romp from an Acclaimed Author

Two years ago, Zayne Beckett's departure from New York City to meet up with his almost-fiance caused Agatha Watson no small amount of grief. So he is the last person she wanted to stumble upon in her travels as a reporter with the New York Tribune. Looking worse for the wear, he clearly needs to be taken in hand and taken back East to his family. Even though she's over him, Agatha can't help feeling sorry for him and realizes she'll have to be the one to get the stubborn man back home.

Zayne has no desire to be taken anywhere. Content to sit and mope over his recent bad fortune and the desertion of his not-quite-fiance, he's prepared to drag his heels all the way back to New York. That is, until he and Agatha find themselves slipping back into the strangely enjoyable bickering and bantering of their old friendship.

It isn't until they arrive in New York City that Zayne realizes Agatha's determined nose for news has earned her a few enemies. When his attempts to repay her for helping him go sadly awry, Agatha proves herself just as stubborn as Zayne. Everyone else may think them a match, but nothing could be further from the truth--until Agatha finds herself in real trouble. Have these two stubborn, too-smart-for-their-own-good people been meant for each other all along?

Delighful story
5 stars By Hannah, Sep 22 2014
Jen Turano's books are such fun to read, mostly because the characters are such characters! They seem to always be getting themselves into trouble, usually because they're trying so hard to save everyone else, which only makes them more loveable. After being secondary characters in the first three books, it was really nice to finally read Agatha and Zayne's story. Bitterly hurt, and sadly clueless when it comes to women, Zayne has no intention of spending any time with Agatha. As far as Agatha's concerned, Zayne needs help, and she's the one to do it, much to his consternation. What follows is a crazily fun series of events peppered with just enough seriousness to remind readers to hold onto faith, no matter what. Great story!
