done everything to hide her past...
Fletcher has worked hard to put her Midwest farmer’s daughter image behind
her, happily replacing it with a move to San Diego and landing her dream job
as a sophisticated up and coming TV reporter at KSUN. She even has a fiancé
who totally understands her and her
career goals. Everything is perfect until she’s assigned to cover a
community gardening project--definitely not
the hard news assignment she’s been hoping for. She does her best to grit
her teeth and just get through it, but when she meets long-haired,
devastatingly handsome and mysterious Jason Macdonald, owner of Green
Zone--the subject of her assignments--he manages to get under her skin in a
way she doesn’t want and can barely handle. But, hey, she’s a
professional, right? So what if his casual touch makes her stomach do
do anything to forget his past...
Macdonald has thrown his heart and soul into his new business--helping urban
neighborhoods reclaim land and create thriving community gardens. It’s a far
cry from his former fast-paced life when he ran an exclusive landscape
architect business. He’s done with working 24/7 and he’s especially done
with women who are career driven over everything else. He’s buried his past,
including some heartaches that will never heal...and he’s finally found his
own patch of paradise and loves the new business he’s in. When he learns the
new KSUN reporter is resisting covering his new business, he’s ready to set
her straight. She’s everything he expects--type-A all the way...but he also
suspects she’s hiding something. When she lets her guard down, he sees a
glimpse of the real Angie.
But what is she hiding...and why does he care so much?
their attraction builds and they are forced to work together, will Angie and
Jason each face their pasts in order to open up their hearts to an unexpected

Publishers Weekly Reviewer
author delivers engaging characters and a charming spin on an old plot in this
mildly spicy contemporary romance. Hardworking Chicago advertising exec Jake
Randall travels to his tiny hometown -- Faythe, Wisconsin, which he’d left
years earlier after escaping his abusive father -- to help his elderly Aunt
Tillie repair her aging Victorian house. Upon arriving, he finds Tillie has
died and a familiar face is now living in her house: divorcée Cory Richards,
a high school friend. Matchmaker Tillie has one more surprise in store: Jake
and Cory both are inheriting half of her home, but to earn it, the two must
live there together for three months. Soon, Jake’s feeling much more than
friendship for the sweet nurse, but can he dare hope she feels the same? For
her part, Cory’s been kicked in the face by love as an adult -- but believed
Jake to be out of her league since they were high school students. The author
deftly builds a believable plot and significant emotion as Jake and Cory
struggle to define what their past means -- and what their future may be.
While the prodigal son returning to his small town and garnering the local
girl is a long-used and familiar strategy in contemporary romances, this
author proves to be a master of rising above the usual stereotypical romance
elements, creating a believable plot and characters readers root for from page
one. Enjoyable and fresh."
Wells-Richards left her cheating husband behind and headed straight back to tiny
Faythe, Wisconsin, eager to create a new future for herself. First order of
business, keep her promise to a dear friend and finish the renovation on
the Victorian for dearly departed Tillie and find homes for her nine
cats. How tough could that be? But when Tillie’s great-nephew shows up to
help, it’s all she can do not to fall right back into his arms. She's been
down that heartbreak road with him before, and coming off her recent divorce
she's determined to guard her heart, no matter how sexy he looks with a
hammer in his hand and his shirt off.
is caught between a rock and a hard place. Well, between his party-hearty,
successful big city life in Chicago and the sleepy hometown he was glad to see
in his rear-view mirror at the tender age of 18. He plans to fulfill his promise
to Tillie and help restore her house to get it ready to sell, then
return to his comfortable life in Chicago. But how is he supposed to get
any work done with pretty little Cory around doing her best to drive him crazy? Being
in Faythe rekindles all those long forgotten memories, some bad and
some good--including his desire for Cory, the one girl he couldn’t have.
the sexual tension between Cory and Jake heightens and their emotional
connection strengthens, will they let down their barriers long enough to
find true love, or will the pain of the past keep them apart forever?
