Publisher Description

One winning lottery ticket. Two desperate people.

Lizzy Guidry is having the worst day of her life, thanks to newspaperman Martin Taylor, whose editorial has raised the ire of Lizzy’s boss, the mayor of Santa Helena, California. Martin is on the verge of losing his newspaper, which is why he’s buying yet another lottery ticket the night he runs into Lizzy. Still fuming, Lizzy beats him to it, nabbing the last ticket before the machines close. Topping off Martin’s worst day, Lizzy’s ticket wins. Only she doesn’t know it. 

As Martin attempts to romance his way to five million dollars as the year rolls to close, will he lose his heart in the process? Will they both realize that love, more than money, is the ticket to paradise?
