2014 год. Ballantine Books Alix Madsen is just finishing her degree in architecture when she's bequeathed the use of a charming eighteenth-century home in Nantucket for one year. Planning to use the time to study for her exams, Alix discovers that nearly everyone she knows has their own agenda as to how she should spend her days while in Nantucket. But all she wants to do is meet Jared Montgomery, the sexy man living in the guest house on the property. Alix is thrilled to discover the world-famous architect living mere footsteps from her, and she's determined to impress him. As Alix tries to solve everyone's problems--including planning her best friend's wedding, finding old journals for her bestselling author mother and solving the mystery behind a nineteenth-century woman--little does she know that Jared is also trying to charm her. He owes his success to Alix's father and he's been ordered to ensure her happiness--a pleasurable enough task for Jared who finds the off-island girl irresistible.
