To start her new job, she is forced to stay with notorious ladies’ man Lachlan McDonald. They were an item years ago until Penelope learned he was nothing but a depraved, self-opinionated, womanizer. Pitting her wits against Lachlan, the incidents back home and with her deceased father, are forgotten.
Lachlan isn’t happy about sharing his house with Penelope. She has a chip on her shoulder bigger than Ayres Rock. He might not be able to control strong-willed Penelope, but while she resides under his roof, she will abide by his rules.
Just as Penelope finds something like happiness, an old enemy appears, threatening everything the Martin family holds dear. What does he have planned? And will the family be ready? Penelope and Lachlan must set aside their grievances if they are to save the lives of those they love.
