Book1 in the Secrets Duo
Previusly published as The Scandalous Return of Jake Walker by Myrna Mackenzie.
Eleven years ago Tess Buchanan got Jake Walker expelled from school right before graduation. Now they're thrown together in a sticky situation, and nothing is going to be easy.
Tess is the straightest of the straight shooters, a pillar of the community engaged to the perfect man. Jake is a born rebel with a terrible reputation and secrets he can't reveal. He's been away for eleven years, and he's only in town for the short haul. He'd leave tomorrow if he could, but he and Tess have work to do before he can make his escape. Neither of them is happy about the situation…or the unexplainable attraction that arcs between them. Jake's departure and Tess's wedding can't come too soon.
