Wendy Marsh didn't cultivate her cool and in control vibe on purpose, but she's just fine with it. It keeps everyone at a distance, and helps her manage her job more efficiently. But her boss-babe armor starts to fall apart when she unexpectedly inherits her family's Inn alongside her lazy cousin, and the hot history professor staying on the property just might be the crack that slides Wendy's life into complete chaos. History professor Rob Upshaw is on the hunt for the X that marks the spot of a lost family treasure. He doesn’t know where the X is or what it may contain. He doesn’t know if it even exists. His X-rated thoughts about the beautiful but uptight innkeeper won’t help, even if she may hold the key to his quest. Falling for Wendy should be the biggest X of all, but Rob’s willing to explore the entire alphabet with her. Then she finds out the truth of his search, and nothing may be able to sway their developing relationship from discord back to desire.
