Even since his father died a few years ago and bequeathed The Butterfly Inn to him, Dallas has been competing with fancier and more expensive hotels on the San Leandre boardwalk, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Even when the inn is at capacity, he’s barely able to pay himself a decent salary. A lot of developers want to buy the inn, but Dallas wants to honor his father’s memory.
He’s trying to think about how to keep things afloat when the most gorgeous man he has ever seen in his life walks into the inn. Despite how attracted he is to him, Dallas finds himself having to turn him away from the inn because he doesn’t have a credit card to check in. The gorgeous stranger offers $10,000 in cash to stay for the week and Dallas, who should know better, takes the money and checks him in under a fake name.
He spends the next few days wondering who his guest is, whether he’s a criminal, until Dallas finds himself rescuing his sketchy guest from a drunken club situation. Soon, he’s learning his guest’s secrets—and they’re much bigger than he expected.
Just not in the way he thought. But the kind of thing surrounding this stranger—Dallas is pretty sure that only exists in fairytales. Should he follow his heart and go into the unknown or stay home and protect his father’s legacy?
