Monica Appleby is a woman with a reputation. Once she was America's teenage "Wild Child," with her own reality TV show. Now she's a successful author coming home to Bishop, Arkansas, to pen the juicy follow-up to her tell-all autobiography. Problem is, the hottest man in town wants her gone. Mayor Jackson Davies is trying to convince a cookie giant to move its headquarters to his crumbling community, and Monica's presence is just too . . . unwholesome for business. But the desire in his eyes sends a very different message: Stay, at least for a while. Jackson needs this cookie deal to go through. His town is dying and this may be its last shot. Monica is a distraction proving too sweet, too inviting--and completely beyond his control. With every kiss he can taste her loneliness, her regrets, and her longing. Soon their uncontrollable attraction is causing all kinds of drama. But when two lost hearts take a surprise detour onto the bumpy road of unexpected love, it can only lead someplace wonderful.

This book was not at all what I expected -- it was so much better thanks to its surprisingly deep emotional currents. (A case of don't judge a book by its cover as its cover promises a pretty typical romance -- which I am all for, don't get me wrong -- but it delivers so much more than that.) Jackson Davies, our hero, had more flaws than typically found in romance novels, and Monica Appleby, our heroine, had a core of strength that was as unexpected as it was welcome. Extra points for a secondary story line that *didn't* turn out all nice and easy as is often the case. I found myself nearly sobbing at the end of it, thanks to a well-earned emotional payoff, and the characters stuck with me for awhile in a way that most don't. Definitely looking forward to reading the next in this series.

This is a passionate contemporary romance novel, that is filled with heartrending emotion.
