West’s old-school love story is guaranteed to be popular. With a smart-mouthed heroine and a handsome, charming hero, West’s got all the elements of a modern-day Pretty in Pink. Laughter and tears highlight this tender romance.

Caymen Meyers has never trusted the rich, and the more she sees, the more certain she becomes of her conviction. When Xander Stephens walks into her mother’s doll shop, he is everything she distrusts and more, but his charming smile and persistent nature begin to make her rethink her opinion. Unfortunately, when she discovers that money is the basis of their relationship after all, Caymen will have to reevaluate everything she thought she knew.
