As a millionaire, a workaholic, and one of the Twin Cities’ most eligible bachelors, Flynn Halstengard is happy to let his friends auction him off for charity. If the lucky lady who wins him wants a little action on the side, well, any sex is better than no sex, right? Unless the lady in question is the girl from high school he dubbed “Crazy J.”
For her first vacation ever, Tilly Johnson has spent her life savings on a good cause, a deluxe lakeside cabin, and the superhero from her high school years. Flynn is looking better than ever, and Tilly’s not the same damsel in distress he rescued years ago. But a girl can only outrun her past so long before she’s back to being Crazy J.
All Flynn wants is to ignore her—and the ugly past he left behind. But Tilly’s not the kind of woman who can be ignored—or resisted. After a week together, the millionaire business owner and the special ed teacher realize they’ve got more in common than just bad memories. Like raging lust, a love of comic-book geekery . . . and some unfortunate mutual acquaintances. When a villain steps into the frame to accuse Tilly of a horrible crime, Flynn will have to risk everything he’s built for the woman he was only too happy to escape once before.
