Description : After being left at the altar on her wedding day, businesswoman Allie Strickland returns to her hometown to heal her broken heart. But Heartland Cove County is a small town of Victorian homes and quirky, gossiping citizens.
Grieving the trauma of her fiancé’s betrayal and overwhelmed by her clingy mother, Allie rents the first available house she can find. But on the very first night, Allie’s peace is shattered when an unexpected intruder breaks into the house while she’s taking a bubble bath. An intruder using an alias and old ties to Heartland Cove.
Forced by unusual circumstances to share the same rental house, Allie’s suspicions of the man grow—even as she finds herself attracted to him. But is Ethan Smith merely a magazine freelancer on assignment—or an undercover spy for the mayor who wants to ruin the charming town by running a new highway through for his own profit?
Is Ethan Smith friend or foe? Enemy or lover? And what will Allie do when Sean, her ex-fiancé suddenly shows up at her doorstep . . . ?
