PLAYING WITH FIRE . . .
Five years ago, Audrey Tanner flung caution to the wind and herself into the arms of an emerald-eyed bad boy biker she met at the White Pine Asparagus Festival. Two blissful weeks together convinced her that Kieran Callaghan was The One-until The One blew town without a word, leaving her brokenhearted. Now, starting a new job at the new Harley Davidson showroom, Audrey is floored to meet her new boss: Kieran. He's still hot as hell, but she won't fall for his sexy smile again. This time, she's calling the shots.
. . . OR PLAYING FOR KEEPS?
Kieran never thought he'd return to White Pine, Minnesota, much less see Audrey again. Gorgeous and smart as ever, she's just as irresistible as he remembered. She still doesn't know why he had to leave-or that he's missed her every day since. But he can't deny he wants more than the no-strings fling Audrey proposes. As things between them heat up, Kieran must choose between the secret he's sworn to keep and the woman he never stopped loving . . .
A staid life gets a makeover in the entertaining second White Pine contemporary (after A Kiss to Build a Dream On). Beautiful, modest Audrey Tanner has lost her job; her financial situation is dire, and her love life is nonexistent. She scrambles for a new job at a Harley-Davidson showroom, only to learn that her new boss is none other than Kieran Callaghan, the man she believed was her soul mate until he left her. Audrey, formerly a gym teacher, feels way out of her league dressing the part of a Harley model, but soon she finds that her daring attire gives her newfound confidence and inner strength. Audrey and Kieran's chemistry lights up the pages, but Audrey, certain that her heart will break a second time, holds back, as does Kieran, who is haunted by a terrible secret. A cast of delightful secondary characters, including Audrey's well-meaning but controlling sister, add wonderful flavor, while a cagey high school student provides intrigue. This determined and lovable heroine and her reformed bad boy will capture readers' hearts.
