He’s big-city successful. She’s small-town sweet. But thanks to one reckless night of passion, these opposites are about to become family.
With her professional reputation in tatters, journalist Aria Simons needs to get back on track. A promotion at her local paper is just the way to do it. She can’t afford distractions—especially not handsome ones like Eli Lockwood. But his plans for a development in her idyllic hometown might be exactly the scoop she’s seeking.
Eli never expected to end up stuck in a tiny lakeside town in the middle of nowhere with his rebellious teen sister. Unfortunately, the only person who can connect with the girl is a reporter looking for an exclusive. They strike a deal, but it doesn’t take long before he can’t get the vivacious woman out of his mind.
When one hot night at the beach has lasting consequences, will Aria fight for her ready-made family, or will Eli’s empty childhood make him shut her out . . . for her own good?
