Best known for historical romances that leave readers breathless, Patricia Rice spins stories that few can match. Now her talent takes a contemporary turn with a modern-day fairy tale set in Kentucky, featuring a spunky math teacher and a motorcycle-riding computer CEO in a sizzling adventure of danger, dueling wits, and steamy desire. . . .
JD Marshall is on the run with his sixteen-year-old son, his computers, and his raw nerve–trying to stay alive and finish creating a hot new software program. But an accident derails him in Madrid, Kentucky, and his angel of mercy is Nina Toon, a sassy blond pixie who stirs his blood.
Nina is equally unsettled by this gorgeous stranger who is negotiating his way into her life . . . and her heart. He’s got the money to make her dreams of a botanical garden come true. But how can she trust this rugged charmer who’s bringing strange fortune and possible murder to her quiet town?
Even worse–how can she not?
