Emily is finally rebuilding her life in the small town of Woodstock, Vermont, but that doesn’t mean her secrets haven’t followed. So the last thing she needs is to get involved with her grumpy contractor. That hotheaded jerk is pushing all the right—or wrong—buttons. Maybe that’s why she can’t get him out of her head.
Not that it matters. She’s screwed up every relationship she’s ever had. There’s no way she’s going to get involved … with anyone.
