An old flame rekindles in this fan-favorite tale from New York Times bestselling author Joan Johnston Wealthy aristocrat Bella Benedict has one last wish: to see her five estranged children happily married. But one of her sons, Max Benedict, has no interest in long-term commitment. Instead, he travels the world, working as a sometime spy for the CIA but mostly cementing his reputation as a rich playboy. When he's asked to investigate a foreign threat against the president, he doesn't think twice about accepting-until he hears who he'll be working with in London. FBI Special Agent Kristin Lassiter is under investigation and on the verge of losing everything-her savings, her job, her beloved father. So when Bella Benedict approaches her with an offer to pay her mounting debts, she's tempted to accept. But there's a catch, and a big one. Bella wants Kristin to win the heart of her playboy son Max-the very man who broke Kristin's heart years ago and is unaware that he fathered her nine-year-old daughter. If Kristin succeeds, she'll get the money she needs. But can she win Max's heart without falling back in love with him?
