The moon glimmered brightly that Seattle October night. Magical; cold, crisp and clear -- as it almost never was. Streams of miniscule princesses, pirates and even oversized vampires trekked to Savannah Wentworth's historic estate. She would log 2,100 pieces of candy before closing the door for the last time. It was sold, the ancestral home; papers would be signed the following day. She didn't have to pass out candy, or face curious neighbors... or make dozens of candied apples or litter the front porch with pumpkins and hay bales. But she did. Family traditions ran deep.
While that bittersweet night was an ending... a new beginning arrives with a broom, a couple of black bags, and two helping hands. Somewhat annoyed, she unknowingly meets Austin Douglass, self-made tech mogul, and the estate's new owner.
Savannah is a member of Seattle's old-money elite with an impeccable pedigree and business prowess... until, of course, it was swept away in the economic downturn. To settle ...
