Dastardly Deed by Fran L. Porter
Dastardly Deed is a romantic-suspense novel about Helena, a woman victimized by a scam artist, who adopts Rowan, a young boy victimized by a foster guardian, and brings him to live with her at her dilapidated fishing resort in the Canadian Rockies. They form a bond—but one frayed by the boy’s obsession, as he grows into a strikingly handsome man, with gaining revenge against the scam artist, and also gaining money and power while building the resort into a world-class vacation spot. So angry does Helena become at Rowan’s changing values that she wills the resort not to him, but to Holly, a long-lost niece. It is Holly who ultimately teaches Rowan about life, love, and the aspects of humanity that are truly important.
