He's trouble she doesn't need . . .
Thanks to a cheating fiancé, Josephina Harrington's perfect life just crashed and burned. Moving in with her overbearing parents is definitely not an option. No, she needs to prove she can make it on her own. And she will-by turning her great-aunt's old plantation house into a destination getaway. She's just not expecting her contractor to be so hands-on-and so totally irresistible.
. . . but everything she wants
Bad-boy golf champion Brett McGraw figured his hometown of Sugar, Georgia was the perfect place to lay low and get his life back up to par. The leggy blonde with a pint-sized pup is the kind of sweet 'n sassy trouble he never saw coming. She doesn't know a nut from a bolt and before long, he's renovating her house . . . as she steals his heart. Can he convince Josephina that his womanizing ways are in the past and he's ready for forever?
In this delightful kickoff to the Sugar, Georgia contemporary series, Adair invokes smalltown charm and all its perils. Josephina Harrington flees a failed engagement, her parents' judgment, and the stresses of New York life. She takes refuge in Sugar, planning to rebuild both historic Fairchild House and her dreams of a successful life. Brett McGraw is lying low after a scandal, but his status as the town's most eligible bachelor makes it hard for him to improve the poor reputation that caused all his troubles. Brett's grandmother and her friends control the town and oppose the changes Josephina proposes at Fairchild House. This leaves Brett caught between family loyalties and the possibility of reunion with Josephina, his childhood sweetheart. Town-wide feuds and unrelenting expectations combine to create escalating drama. The sensual and satisfying conclusion feels solidly earned and leaves the door wide open for a strong continuing series.
