About this ebook

Designed for love...

No one says no to fiery but talented home designer Neve Harper—which is how she convinces her elusive neighbor, Duke Kennicot, to help out with her latest renovation job. Not only is Duke a design aficionado, he’s got the inside scoop on the cabin’s owner. And since Neve’s ulterior motive is a romance with the boss, Duke is her ideal wingman. Except from the moment they’re alone in the remote Ozark mountain location, Neve discovers Duke is just as headstrong—and a whole lot sexier—than she ever realized. Duke has always made it clear she’s not his type. Yet the simmering tension between them says otherwise....

Duke had been warned to steer clear of hot-tempered Neve, but his resolve is lessening with every heated exchange—and every smoldering touch. By the time Neve unearths a dangerous, age-old mystery buried on the property, Duke is ready to do just about anything to keep the brazen beauty safe....

She's head strong and high maintenance. He's talented and moody. Mixing business with pleasure never ends well. So why does Neve find herself in a danger of losing more than her heart to the one man that makes her blood boil in a totally inappropriate way? Roxanne Smith packed To the Studs full of unbelievable twists that added drama to the plot line but took away from the romance. I love a bit of mystery but not when it detracts from the story instead of enhancing it. The antics of the main characters were hilarious and made for some fun moments, but I could have done with out the suspense angle.
