Dex is going to a remote island to help find an ancestor from a very prestigious family. He was told that he had to keep his job a secret because the people who live on the island do not take kindly to outsiders and would refuse to open up. He just never thought that the woman would fly him to the island would change his life. He never thought that he would fall in love with her, let alone want to marry her.
Maggie is the type of woman who likes her life the way it is. She does not want anyone to interfere with her life plans. Since she has had heartache from family she has closed herself off from letting anyone else get close to her to hurt her. She just never thought that bringing a stranger to the island would change her. She did not think she would fall in love with him. And not in a million years would she even say she would marry him.
Maggie and Dex had agreed to work together to find the missing relative who is a decedent from a baby that was on a missing sunken ship. The always butted heads because they were both stubborn and set in their ways. Neither wanted to admit that the other was right or had a better way for looking for the person.
After they finally slept together at her house, they found out that his hotel room was trashed. Nothing was missing but it looked like someone was looking for something. Then her helicopter was tampered with and they both almost drowned. It appeared that someone did not want them to find out who the person was band would do anything to keep the secret.
I absolutely loved the book and the characters in it. The author had a way of making you look at her book form all angles. I also love the cliffhanger at the end. It makes you want to read the next book to find out if the relative s found or not. I hope that I can read the book very soon.
Anna Sullivan brings us the first book in her witty new contemporary romance series set off the coast of Maine.

As the desire between them ignites, Maggie becomes the key to the case . . . and the target of an unknown enemy. Now Dex will do anything to protect the woman he's come to love-even risk his own life.
