Jack Garrett has been stung by love in the past so he's not in a hurry to get burnt again, but he can't deny his attraction to the new receptionist, Laurel Thomas.
When trouble comes to Tidal Falls, Jack worries that Laurel is in over her head.
Laurel loves her dysfunctional family but dreams of a place to call home. Just as she settles into a new life, her old one catches up to her and delivers chaos to the town.
Can these two strong personalities find a way to trust in each other and find their happy ever after?
“Jack.” She inhaled, panting like she’d just run the Boston marathon. “Jack, we have to stop.”
“Hmm?” he hummed and the vibration tickled her core and made her ache with needs and desires fated to be unfulfilled.
“My uncle is in the other room.”
That got a reaction, but not the one she expected.
Instead of leaping away like a scalded cat, Jack laid his forehead alongside hers and took a few cleansing breaths before leaning back.
“You don’t know how relieved I am to hear that.” And then he saw her puzzled frown. “I heard a male voice when I arrived and assumed you had a man here.”
As if that should explain everything.
Laurel scowled. “I do have a man here. I just told you that.”
Now he was getting irritated also. He stood straight and glared into her upturned face. “Don’t be an idiot,” he said.
She gasped in outrage.
“I was talking about a lover, of course,” he growled.
What the h-e-double-l did that mean, of course?
You can’t live with them, and you can’t shoot ’em. It’s a felony.
