She looks young and carefree as she leans against the door holding her box of Sweet Cakes and waiting for me to get my glory.
And I can't freaking help myself.
I take two steps, come toe to toe with her, and my hands go to her face. She lets out a slight gasp as I pull her away from the door and the sound of the Sweet Cakes box hitting the floor doesn't even bother me.

(blurb from Goodreads) Down in Whynot, NC, there are three things that hold true: 1) life moves just a little bit slower, 2) family means everything, and 3) you don’t mess with history. 

When his family decides to sell a home that’s been part of their history for over a century, Lowe Mancinkus is madder than a hornet. To add insult to injury, the woman who purchased it is some fancy pants, city girl looking to fix it up and sell it off. Doesn’t matter that she’s sexy as hell or that just being near her gets his blood racing like never before. That home belongs to his family, or at least it did until she came to town. 

Well that just won’t do, now will it? 

From the moment that she laid eyes on the historical home in rural North Carolina, Melinda Rothschild knew Mainer House was something special. The perfect escape from life in New York City, Melinda signed the papers and set to work restoring the house to its natural beauty. That is until an angry Lowe showed up on her doorstep one day. With a scowl on his handsome, chiseled face. And a shotgun in his strong, muscular arms. 

Is it getting hot in here? 

Melinda’s about to get a lesson on life in the south, but Lowe is about to learn a lesson of his own – this city girl doesn’t back down from a fight.


  1. Looks interesting. Enjoy your current read!

  2. Not being from the south, I often wonder if the stereotypes portrayed here are correct. My Friday Quotes

  4. I've heard great things about Sawyer Bennett and if there's a character fixing up a house I'm so in! Enjoy your reading!
