Before you get down on bended knee…you should be pretty darn sure the answer will be yes.
For ten years, Connor O'Rourke has been waiting for Jessica Dunn to take their on-again, off-again relationship public, and he thinks the time has come. His restaurant is thriving, she's got her dream job at Blue Heron Vineyard—it's the perfect time to get married.
What she and Connor have is perfect: friends with an excellent benefits package. So when he pops the question, her answer is a fond but firm no. If it ain't broke, why fix it? Jess has her hands full with her younger brother and finally a great career doing something other than waitressing. Besides, with her difficult past (and questionable reputation), she knows she's not wife material.
But this time, Connor says it's all or nothing. If she doesn't want to marry him, he'll find someone who does. Easier said than done, given that he's never loved anyone but her. And maybe Jess, who's always seemed so sure of herself, has a few things left to learn of her own.
