Years of fighting with London has him primed for the rounds of rapid-fire barbs he knew she’d throw. What he isn’t prepared for is their mutual attraction and off-the-charts chemistry. It’s in his best interest to stay away from her.
Only now London has come up with a plan and needs his help in saving her family. Jacob doesn’t have the willpower to say no. Will these two enemies call a truce long enough to accomplish their mission and find true love?
Foes. Enemies. He needed one thing from her, stealing her heart wasn't it.
Welcome back to Cinnamon Bay, where the neighbors know your business and one sip of the Cafe Amour can make you fall in love. If you believe in that kind of thing.
Playboy billionaire Hudson Carmichael witnessed his family fortune go bankrupt as the bank forecloses on their every asset. The once VP of Development for the Carmichael Equity Group finds himself broke and jobless with nothing more than the deed to the old spice factory to get himself and family back on their feet. He’s got investors and a solid plan, but one thing holding back the start of construction: the town’s approval. It would be an easy fix if he had hundred-dollar bills to wave in front of the town council to buy their votes…or if the one woman who loathes him didn’t sit as council head, ready to watch him fail.
Historian and all-around town sweetheart, Aria McCabe is still fuming over cocky Hudson Carmichael stealing The Blue Barn estate out from under her, only to tear the historical landmark down! A few years later and oh how the tables have turned. His family has lost everything and now he needs her approval for the old historical site. If only she’s willing to give it to him.
What are his plans? To fix the Cinnamon Factory up and stick around, or wait until a better deal comes along?

Delilah Wilke has always been more interested in reading about history and her town—Cinnamon Bay's local legends of treasures hidden by pirates—than taking an adventure herself. Now that she's taken over Antique Alley, the family business, her life is too busy for adventure anyway.
Then Chace McCoy walks into her store. Chace is a well-known treasure hunter and bestselling adventure novelist. People—including Delilah's dad—love the guy. But Chance is a man she's never trusted—cocky, yet witty, and charming. He looks like a pirate and probably has the same scruples. When Chace offers her a proposal to work together in order to find long-buried treasure, she wonders what his scheme might be. Turns out, a long-time friend of Chace's knows about some hidden treasure map that's about to be auctioned off and he wants Delilah's help. The catch? They'll have to "borrow" the map belonging to legendary captain Fraleigh.
Delilah is skeptical, but also intrigued. Can she break out of her shell and work with the one man she doesn't trust in order to find the treasure of a lifetime.
