Taking over her family’s charming and historic Red Rose Inn is a dream for Kira Davis—even if it means the extra stress of knowing the entire Davis clan is watching her every move. But ignoring her family’s wishes and hiring too-handsome Franklin Bennett as her temporary new manager might be a huge mistake…given their families’ decades-long feud.
Yet attraction still sparks between them, proving to ex–army engineer Franklin there’s something real beneath the surface. Something hopeful. Something unmistakable. But pursuing Kira could prove dangerous for a man with an uncertain future.
Now Kira and Franklin are caught between an ancient family feud and their feelings for each other. The only way they can love each other is by unraveling the terrible truth about what happened back then…and hope that love is strong enough to mend the break from so long ago.
Kira has recently taken over the management of the Inn that her family owns and is determined to show them they made the right decision. She doesn’t get off to a great start as she needs someone to help her with the day-to-day activities and the only person available is Franklin who happens to be part of the family that hers is feuding with.
Franklin has returned to his hometown as he contemplates the next step in his future. The job with Kira is perfect as it allows him to use his skills on a temporary basis. Neither Kira nor Franklin were prepared for the attraction and feelings they would have for each other but if they are to be together they must resolve the painful past between their families.
I did enjoy seeing the relationship between Kira and Franklin unfold as they uncovered the secrets of the past and allowed healing to finally occur.
