Cory Wells-Richards left her cheating husband behind and headed straight back to tiny Faythe, Wisconsin, eager to create a new future for herself. First order of business, keep her promise to a dear friend and finish the renovation on the Victorian for dearly departed Tillie and find homes for her nine cats. How tough could that be? But when Tillie’s great-nephew shows up to help, it’s all she can do not to fall right back into his arms. She’s been down that heartbreak road with him before, and coming off her recent divorce she’s determined to guard her heart, no matter how sexy he looks with a hammer in his hand and his shirt off.
Jake is caught between a rock and a hard place. Well, between his party-hearty, successful big city life in Chicago and the sleepy hometown he was glad to see in his rear-view mirror at the tender age of 18. He plans to fulfill his promise to Tillie and help restore her house to get it ready to sell, then return to his comfortable life in Chicago. But how is he supposed to get any work done with pretty little Cory around doing her best to drive him crazy? Being in Faythe rekindles all those long forgotten memories, some bad and some good–including his desire for Cory, the one girl he couldn’t have.
As the sexual tension between Cory and Jake heightens and their emotional connection strengthens, will they let down their barriers long enough to find true love, or will the pain of the past keep them apart forever?
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY review:
“While the prodigal son returning to his small town and garnering the local girl is a long-used and familiar strategy in contemporary romances, this author proves to be a master of rising above the usual stereotypical romance elements, creating a believable plot and characters readers root for from page one. Enjoyable and fresh.” – Publishers Weekly
