Summer of Deception
Determined to unearth the truth about her DEA agent brother’s reported death, Rachel York takes a nanny position at an historic Charleston tea plantation. She finds she is ill prepared to deal with the plantation’s new owner who is overflowing with bitterness and distrust.
Widowed and wounded, former Marine Corps Special Forces operative, Luke Barrett, has enough to handle with his little girl and an historic property to upkeep. The last thing he needs is a feisty, stubborn woman with whom to contend. Yet, Rachel’s determined spirit awakens something in Luke that he thought died a long time ago.
Luke begins to capture Rachel’s heart until the night she uncovers evidence he may be keeping his plantation solvent by allowing cocaine to be smuggled along his coastline.
Devastated by the possibility, Rachel must decide whether to confront him, even while she conceals secrets of her own.
Can love survive a summer of deception?
