From the Publisher:
Zoe's a security specialist and a Costas through and through. Her eccentric, rather dubious family runs an Atlantic City spa that's just this side of legit. So Zoe isn't inclined to trust handsome, charming Ryan Baldwin when he shows up claiming to be related to Sam, the girl the Costas family is about to adopt. But Ryan is Sam's uncle and one of the famously rich and snooty Boston Baldwins.
Ryan's search for his sister Faith has led him to news of her death, and to a niece he's never met. But someone else has also tracked Sam down — someone who never wanted the child to be found. Ryan is determined to protect Sam and find out what really happened to his sister. And Zoe "Whatever-It-Takes" Costas is just the woman to help him do it
Last seen in UNDER THE BOARDWALK, the Costas family returns in this contemporary romance. Zoe Costas, ex-Secret Service agent and now the head of her own private security company, is fiercely loyal to her bohemian Greek-American family, including her teenage foster-sister Samantha, whom Zoe's parents plan to adopt. That's why she's determined to protect them against Sam's hitherto unknown Boston blueblood uncle, Ryan Baldwin, who unexpectedly arrives at the Costas home in New Jersey with the intention of taking his niece away. As conservative Ryan slowly learns to accept Samantha's unconventional foster family, he also finds himself developing feelings for Zoe.
