A LITTLE BIT CLOSER
Blake Southerland is tired. Building an empire is hard work and his meteoritic rise in wealth and power has come at a steep cost. He misses the family he's always been close to, and although he has absolutely no desire to follow his siblings down the path to true love and happily ever after, he's tired of Skyping into family events instead of showing up in person. He doesn't need to fall in love; he needs a chance to find his center and the peace that comes from going home.

But will Blake's big pushy loving family overwhelm or charm her and will the clash of their cultures be one more wedge between them or will the beautiful English rose help the jaded businessman find his way home?
