The only way out is to find the Kincaid Cache, the family treasure that was found years before him. But the only way to go on a mission to find the cache is to lie to everyone and tell them that he is only trying to focus on the properties of the beans. He thinks that he will be able to do both jobs easily. That is until he finds out his border is the delectable Lavonda. This was a good read that shows not all treasures are the ones made of gold. This was an OK read, the only problem I had with it was the length. This book could have been finished much faster, and the shorter length would have made it much more enjoyable to me. The scenes of suspense such as with the water rapids was good but the "romance" between the two characters didn't seem to be much more than comforts in a dry desert. I will say one thing. The author did a wonderful job of showing how combustible the two main characters were without making every page a sex scene. Overall this was a good read for romance lovers. ~A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection.
