Everyone says Luma has the world at her fingertips. Her trust fund can buy anything she wants, there's a modeling agency courting her, and most people would kill for her life-especially her stepmother, Tabitha. When Tabitha comes home mangled from a botched cosmetic procedure and finds out Luma's been offered a prestigious gig, jealousy rears its aging, puffy head. Tabitha wants Luma dead and she's got no choice but to flee. Alone and cut off from her resources, Luma's last refuge is a remote cottage where she prays Tabitha won't find her. Charlie is the newest addition to her family's lumberjack business in the forest, whittling away her emotions as she works through a broken heart. Beauty really is skin deep because no woman can look past the birthmark on her forehead. Charlie is ready to forget about love . . . until she finds Luma asleep in her bed. She's in danger, vulnerable, and also the most beautiful woman Charlie has ever seen. When the lumberjacks take Luma under their protection, she finds more than just safety. She finds Charlie and a new purpose in the forest-until Tabitha comes back to finish her kill. Contains mature themes. Some things can be fixed with a little duct tape . . . but a broken heart ain't one of 'em. Avery Blake has spent years getting by all on her own in a big house on the countryside. As a contractor, there's not much room for emotion in her male-dominated profession, and she's perfectly content to keep people out of her private life, too. After watching her elderly neighbor, Nora, be torn away from her long-time lover by heartless relatives, Avery has seen what it's like to love and to lose, and she'd rather skip the whole thing and focus on work (and the occasional meaningless fling) instead. Some relationships can be fixed with a little breathing room . . . and some are too far gone. Hannah Grayson has nothing but room to breathe when she finds out her Great-Aunt Nora has passed and left her a house in rural Indiana. Fleeing a dysfunctional and controlling relationship in New York, she moves into the house because she's got nowhere else to go. Disasters start piling up almost as soon as the plane touches down-the house is in disrepair, Nora's grandchildren are trying to evict her, and the gorgeous but chilly woman across the street seems to have a problem with Hannah's presence. When a pipe bursts on her first night in the house, Hannah has no choice but to run across the street and beg for help from Avery. The rest, as they say, is history . . . Contains mature themes.
