Molly Elliott’s quiet life in Tallahassee, Florida, is disrupted when routine errands land her in the wrong place at the wrong time: the middle of a bank robbery.

Her new beginning is peaceful – that is, until five guests show up at the inn for a weekend, each with a hidden agenda.

Success has its sacrifices and I’ve been more than happy to put my search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed student finding their own Mr. Right…

That post never makes it to the public eye, but those three words perfectly sum up Bianca’s outlook, and rule the way she interacts with the men around her — including Rashad.
Rashad isn’t interested in anything serious either, but for a different reason. Rashad loves women, and women love him, but he’s avoiding trouble — the nickname his father uses for the kind of woman that makes you forget all others exist.
