She’s willing to give a shot at saving the dying town of Green Pines, but things get complicated when billionaire real-estate developer Covington Black moves in up the road. Sure, she’s got a crush on him – who wouldn’t? But he’s just taken out an injunction to keep her from picketing his construction sites, so when he starts romancing her, he must be up to something. Whatever game he’s playing, she knows he’s only going to break her heart.
Covington Black knows what he wants. He’s got big plans and he’s looking for a partner to share his dreams with. He wants to believe Ella’s the one, and yet it seems like falling for her is the one thing he shouldn’t have done.
“This is one of those books where you just fall into the story and it carries you along, and two hours later you become cognizant of your surroundings and say, ‘Oh rats! The book is over!’ and you are sad, and head directly to Milou Koenings’ website to see if she’s written anything else because she’s that good.”
“An emotional and ‘real’ read from the beginning.”
Author note: For many years, I had wanted to write a romance set a small town loosely based on a place I knew. I didn’t expect the story to turn out to be this at all – it took on a life of its own.
