Jaxie Parker works for one of the best ad agencies in Atlanta and and thrives in the upscale fast lane. She loves everything about the big city including her power-packed days and party-filled nights. But life as she knows it comes to a screetching halt when the boss puts her in charge of the firm’s annual pro bono project, which is to revitalize a small town. Unfortunately, Rumton, South Carolina doesn’t have a mall or nightclub, much less a nail salon. For that matter, there’s no hotel, either. Jaxie ends up rooming with an old man in an even older house that he shares with a dog and a thieving raccoon.
Just when Jaxie thinks that she’s landed in a dreadfully uneventful place, things heat up pretty fast — there’s much more to Rumton than meets the eye. Sexy men. A sinister plot to steal from the town. A raging wind storm. Quirky townspeople. And loads of astonishing pirate history. It all adds up to some major Carolina booty!
