From celebrated author LaQuette comes a sizzling contemporary romance that will leave you breathless, with:
- A hot-as-sin hero who's been burned before
- A confident, sexy, full-figured heroine determined to do some good
- Explosive chemistry in the bedroom...the kitchen...the living room...
- And a shocking finale that can't be beat.
Aja Everett longs to turn her old family home into a place where anyone can find rest and healing. But her big heart's bound to get her in trouble if she's not careful--someone wants her gone, and they'll do whatever it takes to drive her away from the land that's her lifeblood. Whether she's willing to admit it or not, she needs help.
She needs a man like Jackson Dean.
Jackson doesn't trust love. He once made the mistake of following his heart and all he'd gotten was pain in return. But when do-gooder Aja Everett asks for his help, he can't stay away...and as attraction sizzles and protective instincts flare, she may be the only woman able to restore his broken heart.
Sometimes oil and water were meant to mix.
