They were from different worlds
Big Sur police chief Joe Devlin was not pleased to be called to the scene of a jewel theft at the elegant West Wind Inn. He had little sympathy for the troubles of the rich and famous.
Nor was the West Wind's owner, Gillian Haverford, happy to see him. A police investigation could seriously damage her inn's reputation.
Yet, from almost the moment they met, Joe and Gillian felt a special bond. Both had painful secrets; both had known betrayal. Against a backdrop of danger and uncertainty, Joe and Gillian shared a desperate passion -- did they dare dream it could become a lasting love?
