Does a former mean girl deserve a happy ever after?
Heather Combs grew up in Ardor Creek, stuck in a home with zero love or emotional support. In response, she lashed out, becoming a popular but cold ice-queen. Hoping to escape her unstable home, she married her high school boyfriend only to realize she'd entered another emotionally unfulfilling relationship. Convinced she didn't possess the capacity to love, she divorced her ex and left Ardor Creek.
Years later, Jeremy Kramer, a successful author and single dad to twin girls, moves to Ardor Creek and instantly falls for the small-town charm. His busy life leaves little room for love, even if newly-returned former bad girl Heather Combs continually catches his eye.
When Heather and Jeremy become neighbors, they quickly realize their chemistry is off the charts. But he's a dad who prefers serious relationships and she detests feelings. After all, love has never been her forte, but in the hidden corners of her soul, she can't deny her yearning for her handsome neighbor and his sweet, precocious girls…
