After the death of her mom, Courtney Madison became her younger brother's guardian. Each week they've managed to survive on the money she earns, but now she's offered the chance to change their way of life. Set to inherit two million dollars, all she has to do is abide by the rules set in the will of her friend, Sam, a dear old man that thought of her as a daughter.

Derek Corrigan doesn't have a high opinion of the woman about to inherit half of a fortune that was meant to be his. Worse yet, he hasn't even met her. Not until the day he walks into the bookstore where she works and tells her all about the will. But soon she has him changing his mind about her, however, he vows to fight his attraction for her because women are all the same -- they end up loving and leaving him.

From the start I absolutely loved this book, although the romance between Courtney and Derek remained on the sweet side when there was so much chemistry between them to be explored. The plot and dialogue was well written, and flowed nicely with the reading of a will changing many lives for the better. The characters were well developed with both Courtney and Derek being headstrong, yet knowing when enough was enough. What I liked so much about Courtney was her stubborn streak, and that she followed through with everything the will stipulated. And as for Derek, I adored how much help he gave Courtney, although at first he didn't want to because she was taking what he thought should have been his.

In conclusion, Ms. Clemmons has penned a fabulous novel in this one with some great secondary characters such as Derek's children and Courtney's brother that helped bring more ambience to the story. And lastly, this is a story I'd definitely recommend because it illustrates that no amount of money in the world brings happiness and that love does.
