A steamy no-strings affair isn’t all it’s cracked up to be for a sassy egg seller and the sexy businessman trying to take her farm.
Haunted by her traumatic childhood, forty-year-old Lindie Brewster finds a measure of peace living alone in rural Ohio with her chickens and gardens to keep her company. Living life on her own terms has gone off without a hitch, until her sexy new neighbor threatens to ruin everything.
Divorcee and reconfirmed bachelor Blaine Stockwell has always had a life plan, and regaining possession of his grandparents’ farm is at the top of his priority list, in addition to being a good father to his nephews. When his lawyer’s generous offers don’t convince the current owner to sell, a little reconnaissance is in order.
Finding Lindie naked in the backyard tempts Blaine to enjoy another kind of arrangement while searching for a solution to their standoff. A no-strings affair improves both their dispositions until a more-than-business proposal and the past threaten to scramble their newly hatched feelings for each other.
