She has been hired for her very first hotel management position, one she plans to make a stepping stone to the career she’s always dreamed of. Attorney Dave Morissey found out the hard way that ambitious women don’t hang around Calusa for long, but he can’t stay away from the leggy redhead. Reeling her in, however, may take a village.
