Two weary souls find each other against all odds...
Ashlyn Rivers left her cheating fiancé behind and moved to Ardor Creek to revamp her life. Done with men in general, she has plenty to focus on, like building her new business and renovating her house for the local haunted homes tour. Falling in love is definitely not on the agenda.
Scott Grillo lost his family in a tragic accident several years ago. Still processing the loss, he throws himself into his contracting business, pushing away the loneliness and heartache.
When Ashlyn blazes into Scott's life, he turns down her request to renovate her house, vowing to squelch the desire she stirs deep inside. But Ashlyn is a force to be reckoned with and Scott finds himself longing for her embrace each day she remains in Ardor Creek.
Can these two disillusioned souls reclaim their hearts and choose to love again?
Welcome to Ardor Creek, the small Pennsylvania town where love is in the air! If you like a grumpy hero, a feisty heroine and steamy romance, this book is your jam. The main character is a widower who discusses the loss of his family so please take note of this before reading. Settle in and fall in love with Ardor Creek today!
Pretty funny and I easily felt the chemistry between the hero and heroine. Both had less than stellar past that kept them from taking the leap but in the end they got there.
Great story, excellent writing
I really enjoyed the maturity of these characters, and their courage in opening up to a second chance at love. The author did a great job allowing the reader insight into the psyche of each character. Their struggles were treated with sensitivity and a generosity of spirit. There is a lot of heat (detailed sex scenes) in this. But, it is very much a story about the power of love to heal, to expand, to renew.
