It was supposed to be a night to forget. Fate disagreed.
I have no tolerance for men who leave and as far as I can tell, they all do. My dad destroyed our family in exchange for a new wife, a woman the same age as me. Even sizzling hot Darby, with whom I shared one night of passion, is probably a cheater under that nice guy persona. Not that I have time for a relationship anyway. Running my newly rebuilt inn after a fire destroyed everything is more than a full-time job. Regardless, I aim to keep my heart safe. The last thing I want it to turn into my mother.
I moved to Emerson Pass nursing a broken heart after my fiancé dumped me for my best friend. I’m content teaching English at the local high school and doing a little construction on the side. Am I surprised to find the woman I spent one amazing night with lives in the same small town? Yes. Even more distressing? She’s friends with all my friends and we can’t stop running into each other. I wish I wasn’t damaged goods and had the courage to try again. If I did, beautiful, clever Jaimie would be the one.
Everything changes when my ex and former best friend show up in town for their wedding. What’s a boy to do but agree to a fake engagement to save face? Will the sparks between us become something more as we pretend to be in love? Who knows?
