Kim’s first computer game hit big, catapulting her into success. She’s young, fashionable, clever—the perfect mix for both media adulation and online attack. A PR nightmare made her a recluse, but now all eyes are on her town as it recovers from a devastating storm.
Floodwaters. Foster children. Family. The demands for Tomás Mireles’s protection loom like a pile of storm debris.
The hurricane hit hard in his personal and professional lives. His evacuated family is crowded into his apartment and he’s assigned to relocate the residents of a flood-destroyed group foster home. Kim Phan offers up her mansion for the kids, plunging him into a battle of wills as he works to make it a safe refuge.
She’s opened her home, but has learned better than to open her heart. He thinks she’s in it for the publicity and praise, meaning he has to work even harder to protect those in need. She thinks he’s one of the many who value her only for what she can give. Will their mistrust of each other drown out the attraction that could bring them both safely to a new outlook on their future?
Melanie Greene is a native Houstonian. She began writing at an early age, though her stories about unfortunate dogs and impish girls who use firecrackers unsupervised have been (mostly) lost in the mists of time. She's a voracious reader, huge audiobook fan, and generally has an overflowing bedside table full of books she can't wait to read next. Of course her favorite genre is romance!
Melanie's greatest pleasure is in creating characters who feel like friends, then giving them some (or several!) challenges to overcome on the way to Happily Ever After. Check out her steamy contemporary romances, full of brainy banter, cosmopolitan cowgirls, and hometown hunks.
Melanie shares her life with her own hometown hunk of a husband and children so amazing they defy superlatives.
