A millionaire in hiding and the woman who might be worth the risk.
They say necessity is the mother of invention. Tia Frogg discovers this first hand when her beloved heirloom earring falls down the drain. She has never spoken to the surly, long-haired janitor at the school where she teaches, but desperate times call for desperate measures. When he wants five favors in payment for his service, Tia finds herself learning about the man behind the beard. And to her surprise, she likes what she sees.
Brody Gruffman, aka Janitor Gruff, had never planned to approach the beautiful home ec teacher where he worked, but when the opportunity to spend time with her fell in his lap, he took full advantage. The more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for the woman who sees past his homeless and hairy state.
But Brody hasn't been honest about who he is and when Tia finds out, it breaks her heart and their relationship. Can Brody mend the fences of the past and present to hold onto the life he never knew he wanted?
