Life and Love in Dixie -- Book 1
Can love conquer deceit and distrust?
All her life, Briana Farrior has been a SAP -- a Southern American Princess, small-town, small-time version. But since she was a college freshman, she has wanted to shed her frivolous self concept and do something with her life that matters.
Her first chance comes when she is hired by Guardian Consumer Protection Group, a watchdog organization in Mobile, Alabama, to help get the goods on ruthless corporations that victimize the little guy.
But her big chance comes when her boss and mentor, Sylvia Watson, helps her go undercover at Gulf States Insurance Services, an independent adjusting firm in nearby Pensacola, Florida.
The young company is headed up by its founder, Justin Adair, who Sylvia suspects of big-time insurance fraud.
Briana's mission -- become Adair's trusted administrative assistant and find the evidence.
But Sylvia didn't tell her young friend that Adair was so handsome and charming. And she didn't tell her how a crook could be a man of such high principles and virtue.
And now that Justin is falling in love with his new administrative assistant, how can Briana stop herself from loving him in return?
More to the point, why should she?
Finding themselves attracted to each other, the pair must deal with her deceit and his distrust as they struggle toward love, while a dangerous adversary from Justin's past, provoked by envy and vengeance -- and Category Five Hurricane Kathy -- imperils them both.
A sweet, truly clean romance and thriller all in one with Christian tenets explained as they arose. Several editing errors/typos/spellcheck & grammar errors made it a 4 star; otherwise definitely a 5 star, couldn’t put it down novel. Loved it!
