Sometimes wrong is oh-so-right…

After a wrenching loss, Ben McDaniel tried to escape his grief by working in dangerous, war-torn places like Africa and the Middle East. Now he’s back in his hometown and face-to-face with Aubrey Wellington, the hot-as-hell woman who is trouble with a capital T. Family and friends insist she’s not the one to ease his pain, but Aubrey sparks an intense desire that gives Ben hope for the future. Determined to right the wrongs of her past, Aubrey is working hard to make amends. But by far, the toughest challenge to her plan is sexy, brooding Ben – even though he has absolutely no idea what she’s done . . . Can this unlikely couple defy the odds and win over the little town of Lucky Harbor?

What people are saying

Top pick! 4 1/2 Stars! Shalvis never disappoints with her witty, comical and überromantic reads. The ninth installment of the Lucky Harbor series should be on every reader's TBR list. Fans of contemporary romance will fall in love with Aubrey and Ben and find their sexual tension electrifying. Our leading lady has a lot to prove in this book, and women will likely see a little bit of themselves inside this character. Sweet and spicy - what more could you ask for?

Read an excerpt


There was one universal truth in Lucky Harbor, Washington—you could hide a pot of gold in broad daylight and no one would steal it, but you couldn’t hide a secret.

There’d been a lot of secrets in Aubrey Wellington’s colorful life, and nearly all of them had been uncovered and gleefully discussed ad nauseam.

And yet here she was, still in this small Pacific West Coast town she’d grown up in. She didn’t quite know what that said about her other than that she was stubborn as hell.
