When fun-loving Elise Stevens lost her mother six years ago, she worked hard to score a job at the Royal Palm Resort—the job that would enable her to finish her mother’s bucket list. Now she’s working hard to get a shot at buying her childhood home back, but only if she can earn the money before they sell to someone else.
Billionaire Merit Casselman pours all of his focus into running his business, or at least he does until his business partner decides that Merit needs to refill his creative well and thinks a vacation at The Royal Palm might do the trick. Merit would rather hide out and work, but his business partner also hired a personal activities director to make sure he doesn’t.
But after connecting with Elise over sand castles, an unplanned couples spa day, and dancing at the Midsummer Ball, and spending every day with her, Merit discovers that there might just be more to life than work.
When Merit’s business partner offers Elise a bonus that’s large enough that she’d be able to put an offer on her childhood home, it feels like a gift dropped into her lap. But when their newfound love threatens each of their lifelong dreams, can their relationship survive?
