Jeremy Price, antique car expert and permanent bachelor, built the modest family auto body business in the heart of Tallulah Cove into a successful corporation. His skilled management created an accomplished team that functions well without him. Solvent, with time to burn, he dives into his dream of dirtying his hands with a top-to-bottom classic car restoration—a dream derailed when his expertise is sought for a surprising reason: to save a woman from murder.
Jeremy uncovers clues to the sabotage, but that isn’t his only focus. His unexpected client is former supermodel Valentina Giordano, and between her beauty, brains, and knowledge of cars, Jeremy breaks his own rules and falls for her hard and fast. He soon finds himself playing three dangerous roles—sabotage investigator, hot lover, and fierce protector of this amazing, but fearless woman determined to discover who in her trusted inner circle wants her dead. Their different worlds collide and keeping Valentina safe becomes Jeremy’s major challenge—second only to not giving her his heart.
USA Today Bestselling author Casey Hagen pens her snarky, passionate stories from the salty air of Kennebunk, Maine. She’s a born and raised Vermont native, a New England girl to the core, with Ben & Jerry’s in her heart and real Vermont maple syrup pumping through her veins.
She’s the proud mother of three girls and a new, first-time grandma with an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy, and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings. Can you say “cool grandma?”
The inked and pierced grandma spends her time tucked away in her office, coated in cat hair, alternating between tearing her hair out trying to find the perfect words and being one step ahead of her three scheming fur babies she is positive are plotting her demise with every swirl around her ankles at the top of her office stairs.
She loves writing stories about real people, with complicated histories, relatable everyday problems, and giving them the hard-won happily-ever-afters they deserve.
And she thanks every last one of you who picks up one of her stories.
Casey is done talking about herself in the third person.
