With just the right blend of laughter and romance, Emily March weaves an air of enchantment in her tales of old-time Texas, with characters who charm their way right into our hearts. Now she pairs a handsome thief and an unconventional beauty to search for treasure — and follow the trail of adventure known as love….


Soaking in a therapeutic mud bath, Maggie St. John suddenly finds herself snuggled up against the slickest thief in Texas, Gentleman Rafe Malone. Raised by pirate “grandfathers” to be a lady, Maggie would prefer a more trustworthy man to help recover a treasure hidden years before. But with time and cash in short supply, she’ll do anything to protect her “papas” and save their spa on Lake Bliss — even put her fortune and future in the hands of a notorious rogue.


Rafe Malone retired from a life of crime to raise horses, though sometimes he misses the excitement of a good escapade. So when a band of elderly pirates makes him a provocative offer, he’s game…and he’s captivated by their vivacious ward, Maggie St. John. Soon Rafe is swimming an underground river hunting hidden riches — and trying to figure out just how to hold on to his hide and steal the most valuable pirate’s prize of all…Maggie’s heart.


“This novel is pure pleasure. This very, very funny book will certainly make you laugh out loud, but you’ll also brush away a tear or two and fall in love with four of the most wonderful old men to come along.”
