All he ever fought for...
Miles McAlister had been dreaming of representing his hometown of Chances Inlet, North Carolina in national politics since he was ten years old. So when his mother fractures a hip, Miles seizes the day and moves home to manage her upscale B&B while rolling out his campaign for Congress at the same time. But his carefully orchestrated life begins to unravel quickly. He discovers the path to political stardom isn’t as easy to navigate as he thought. Especially when people working both for him and opposing him attempt to turn him against the very ideals he’s trying to uphold. Making matters worse is the inn’s stubborn, mysterious, and distractingly beautiful cook. Miles doesn’t trust her, but he can’t seem to get rid of her. Or keep his hands off of her. He’s loved and lost before, so falling for Lori Buchman is not part of his plan.
All she ever feared...
Lori just wants to do her job and be left alone until she can safely move on. The last thing she needs is to get involved with her boss’s Dudley Do Right son. Miles proves to be too sexy to ignore, however. Their heated fling elicits feelings deeper than either anticipated. But everything about Lori is a lie. She’s harboring a secret that’ll destroy Miles’s career, and when the truth gets out it’s going to shock Chances Inlet to its core, forcing Miles to make the hardest decision of his life.
