It takes a funeral to drag bad boy Christian Kelly back to his rural New Zealand hometown. He'd do just about anything to blow out of town for the last time. And never see Kezia Rose again. His first love. And the only woman he'd ever hurt. But when they find out Kezia's going to lose her family's century-old hotel, Christian genuinely wants to help. Except Kezia won't let him. And neither will her grandmother--according to the last will and testament and a long-forgotten IOU he'd given the dear, exasperating old woman.
So, what next?
If the will says he can't buy out the hotel, he'll just have to turn it around by the end of the month. And maybe by then Kezia will understand why he left…and why being near her is breaking his heart all over again.
