The Black Sheep and the Princess by Donna Kauffman

Donovan "Mac" MacLeod has wanted Kate Sutherland since he was sixteen years old and met her at summer camp. She was the unattainable daughter of the owner and he was the drunk handyman's son. Now twenty-some odd years have passed and Kate's in trouble. Her mom recently passed away and left Kate all of her money and Kate's stepbrother, Shelby, received the camp. All Kate wants is the camp so she can re-open it for challenged children. Kate and Shelby make a deal to switch their inheritance. All seems fine but Shelby doesn't show up to sign the final papers. The last man she ever thought would help her is Mac.

Mac is part of a firm with his two best friends, Rafe and Finn. They help people who have exhausted their other options. Mac sees an article about Kate and the inheritance. He is curious and has a gut feeling something is wrong. He shows up at the camp and offers his assistance. Kate is shocked but reluctantly agrees to let him help. On top of her stepbrother being MIA, the town isn't thrilled with her plans and everyday there is new graffiti all over the camp.

While Mac and Kate work together to figure out what is going on, they come to realize that the feelings they had at sixteen haven't gone away. In fact, they are stronger then ever. Both are fighting their feelings and are losing. Can this time around be different?

This is the first book in the Black Sheep series. The next two books are about Rafe and Finn. The Black Sheep and the Princess was a good story but a bit more detailed then I like.
