he is the last person she wanted to stumble upon in her travels as a
reporter with the New York Tribune. Looking worse for the wear,
he clearly needs to be taken in hand and taken back East to his family.
Even though she’s over him, Agatha can’t help feeling sorry for him and
realizes she’ll have to be the one to get the stubborn man back home.
has no desire to be taken anywhere. Content to sit and mope over his
recent bad fortune and the desertion of his not-quite-fiancée, he’s
prepared to drag his heels all the way back to New York. That is, until
he and Agatha find themselves slipping back into the strangely enjoyable
bickering and bantering of their old friendship.
It isn’t until

nose for news has earned her a few enemies. When his attempts to repay
her for helping him go sadly awry, Agatha proves herself just as
stubborn as Zayne. Everyone else may think them a match, but nothing
could be further from the truth — until Agatha finds herself in real
trouble. Have these two stubborn, too-smart-for-their-own-good people
been meant for each other all along?
