Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.
Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

A good read on a rainy evening
Kenzie and Dare
The guilt and regret that Dare feels from a traumatic situation has forced him to retire from his job as a police officer even if he is not at fault. He has purchased the bar that is next to family's inn and although he is happy his parents are planning to slow down he is not enamored by the fact they they have hired someone outside the family to manage the inn.
Kenzie is looking for a new start after leaving her abusive ex and although she is not impressed by Dare's surly attitude she is not going to let him detract from her new opportunity.
As they work together they begin to appreciate what the other has been through and they become close but what happens when her past catches up with her?
This is an amazing start to a new series by this author. Both these characters have endured more than they should have to but it has only made them stronger and the connection between them is intense. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
