We stood like two combatants on the battlefield and judging by the spike of arousal that pinned me to the spot I wasn’t entirely sure my body remembered the countless nights I cried myself to sleep because of him. — Claire Walker
Claire Walker understands business. Not grief. The death of her father throws her meticulously crafted life into disarray. The last thing she wants is to return to her sleepy little hometown of Sunrise Valley.
She’s a maelstrom of emotion when she runs into Thomas Weller, her ex-best-friend who’s turned into a Greek god of brooding muscle and chiseled features. Her body seems ready to forgive his betrayal, even if she isn’t.
All Thomas wants is to be left alone to save his failing bakery. But when Claire comes back to town feelings he thought dead and buried return to life and he can’t stay away. She broke his heart, but he’s willing to give love a second chance.
When Claire’s father bequeaths the failing business to both of them, it’s the surprise of a lifetime, and an irresistible puzzle Claire can’t help but tinker with. Thomas is convinced that keeping Claire in town is his happily ever after, and he’ll do anything to make her stay.
Claire has saved multi-billion-dollar companies from doom, but can she stop herself from falling for Thomas?
