She’s on the rebound, and he’s on the prowl.
Aurora “Rory” Pike gave up her dream of becoming an opera superstar long ago. Now she’s content to teach music to the children of Snow Creek while helping her family recover from the wildfire that devastated them. After a messy breakup and a ghost from the past resurfacing, she’s examining her priorities…and they don’t include a passionate kiss from womanizer Brock Steel.
Brock Steel just watched his skirt-chasing mentor—his cousin Donny—give up his playboy ways and fall hard for Callie Pike, sister of Rory Pike, the most beautiful woman in Snow Creek. Rory just ended a relationship, and Brock makes sure he’s there to pick up the pieces. Physically, that is. Emotionally? Brock doesn’t do emotion.
Chemistry between Brock and Rory proves to be hotter than either of them imagined, and it provides a welcome respite, especially for Brock, who’s dealing with a conundrum. As bits and pieces of seemingly unrelated evidence emerge, he must come to terms with the fact that his renowned family may not be the paragon he thought they were.
Rory may not have achieved her professional dream, but she isn’t about to give up on her personal dream so even though she hasn’t been able to find a man that she wants to spend her future with that doesn’t mean she can’t have the baby she has always wanted. She is attracted to Brock, but he might just be a distraction she can’t afford between the past that refuses to stay where it belongs and a suspicious fire.
Brock has enjoyed his single lifestyle and doesn’t see that changing however that doesn’t mean he isn’t attracted to Rory. He soon realizes that she is very different from the previous woman he has known and the feelings she inspires in him are unlike anything he has felt before, but his escalating family issues are only making the situation more complicated.
The characters draw you in and the chemistry between radiates off the pages which leaves us wanting more of them and their story.
