Sometimes riches have nothing to do with money…
Konstantine Petrakis, reclusive owner of The Ocean Pearl Resort, needs to find who is giving away marketing secrets. Going undercover to ferret out the culprit, he dons his Dean Peters persona and takes a position there. After all, no one pays attention to the maintenance staff.
Eleni Griffin puts in long days and strange hours as the only administrative assistant to the top brass at the large resort on Last Chance Beach. Homeschooling her eight-year-old twins and taking care of her mother isn’t easy as a widow on a small salary.
Eleni’s position puts her squarely in the suspect category. Yet, once Dean gets to know her and her charming family, he realizes she’d never betray the resort. His money can make her life easier, but then he’d have to confess he’s been lying to her for months. What started as a short-term project to find a turncoat might have Dean finding a permanent reason to stay on the island.

When Thea jerked on his hand, he bent down close to her face as she said, “I think Mom could use a boyfriend. Do you think you could be her boyfriend?”
He pursed his lips and closed one eye. “I don’t know. What do I have to do?” Let’s hope she didn’t know exactly what the job entailed.
Her tongue poked out of her mouth and slid to the side. “Uh, hold her hand. Make her laugh.”
“Okay. I do some of that now, don’t I?”
“Hmm, yeah, you do. But I think when you’re her boyfriend, you might have to kiss her.”
He reared back and made a terrified face. “Really?”
Thea’s eyes opened wide and she tugged again. “It’s not so bad. Mom smells really good and her skin is so soft. You should touch it and see.”
