Since the day beautiful socialite Afia St. John was born, her life has been plagued with bad luck. After losing her father and two older husbands in “freak” accidents, Afia now discovers her business manager has absconded with her fortune. Vowing not to rely on another man to guide her life, Afia refuses her godfathers’ help, and jumps at an unexpected job with the Leeds Investigations.
With a pregnant, broke, sister, and an investigation agency in the red, control-freak Jake Leeds can’t turn down the hefty but secret retainer offered by Afia’s godfather for hiring her. Quickly seeing beyond her poor business skills, wacky superstitions and sensationalized personal history, he realizes Afia is as generous in the heart as she is misunderstood. But life is never easy for the woman born on Friday the 13th. Will the sexy PI be the good luck charm that puts her on a winning streak or, like everything else in her life, will their relationship wind up Jinxed?
