She’ll save his business and steal his heart, if he’ll let her.
This book is the third in the Sweetwater Springs series of stand-alone books by this author.
J.T. Baxter is having a very bad year. As if adjusting to widower status and caring for two sons, weren’t enough, he has a landscaping business to keep afloat with a loan coming due. The last thing he needs is the town princess waltzing into his life with a business proposal he can’t afford to refuse.
Cassandra Bing feels adrift after her father’s death, a nasty broken engagement and enduring a job she loathes. She’s searching for her niche, something that would’ve made her dad proud and will bring her fulfillment. But gardening is a hot, dirty business, and soon she’s wishing she’d made a different sort of proposition to the sexy dad.
As attraction escalates between J.T. and Cass, tensions grow in a house where secrets fester. Can her presence begin to heal the Baxter household, or will their tender feelings become a casualty of the impending emotional storm?
Warning: This book contains some plant abuse, a sexy, bare-chested landscaper, sensual use of ice cubes and steamy adult situations in a greenhouse. Readers may suddenly wish to hug motherless kids, experience a rise in pulse rate and may feel the need for a cooling fan.
The Sweetwater Springs series will appeal to readers who enjoy sensual romance against a backdrop of family and community.
Book 1: A Suitable Family (Rosie and Sam)
Book 2: Her Unexpected Family (Claire and Travis)
Other titles are planned for this series.
