Product Description

City girl Veronica "Ronnie" Hawthorn has found peace at last in the Missouri Ozarks town of Green Springs. She and her young daughter, Natalie, are excited at the prospect of running their own arts-and-crafts store in an old farmhouse. But when city girl Ronnie "falls" into her handsome neighbor's arms, she is surprised to discover that country boy Dave Darden is one of the most eligible bachelors in America.

Dave is intrigued by his sexy new neighbor and simply adores "Nat," but his need to run every business he encounters efficiently gets in his way of impressing Ronnie. She wants to run her store--and her life--her own way without Dave's (or anyone else's) meddling. Can they get past their pride and acknowledge their love for each other?


Today was the first day of her new business, and Ronnie wanted to always remember it as a happy one. The pitch of her humming soon matched the whine of the electric potter's wheel, tuning out troubling doubts and painful memories. The dusty, earthen aroma of the clay transported her thoughts back in time. She could almost pretend she was still in art school, long before she met Jim, fell in love, got married, had Natalie and buried her desire to become an artisan under a “soccer mom” facade. The Green Springs Arts and Crafts Gallery opened a new chapter in life for both her and Nat. Ronnie made a silent vow -- this story would have a happy ending. 

The haunted-house creaking of the back screendoor instantly alerted her to another's presence. A little girl's giggle gave her would-be assailant away. 

She grinned. Silly, Nat! She's sneaking up on Mommy to play “Guess who?”It was nothing short of miraculous. In the few short days since they had moved from the city to Green Springs, Natalie had left the sadness of her father's recent death behind and rediscovered her childhood. Ronnie couldn't wait to spring a surprise of her own on her playful six-year-old daughter.

 Ronnie bent further over her work, pretending not to hear Natalie's approaching footsteps as they were heralded by the squeak of the old farmhouse's pine floorboards. Squeak, squeak, squeak... Shestifled a laugh and kept her eyes focused on the clay, her reflexes readied for her own response. She sprang into action the instant a tickle of warm breath brushed against the back of her neck.

“Got ya!” Ronnie cried, spinning around on her stool, grabbing her attacker by the collar and planting the biggest, wettest, sloppiest kiss she could manage. 


A jolt of electricity raced from her lips and traveled along the nerve highways of her body, awakening places inside she had believed were dead and buried along with Jim. Her eyes instantly flew open. 

Surprise! These lips didn't belong to her daughter. 

Stunned, Ronnie pushed with all her might against the stranger's wide shoulders but found herself held fast in his powerful embrace. She pounded her fists against him, but her actions only caused him to crush her curves closer to his muscular chest. His tongue entered her slightly parted mouth and enticed an immediate response from within her, frightening in its intensity. Her mind spun so fast she toppled off the stool and landed like a bag of clay into the newcomer's formidable arms. 

It seemed an eternity before the stranger lifted his lips from hers, releasing her from his daring grasp. Ronnie melted onto the floor, her power even to protest this despicable interloper's brazen behavior vanquished.

 “If this is how you greet all your male customers then I'll lay odds this place turns a profit its first month…"
