Faith Garrett's down a fiance, an apartment and a dream honeymoon in the tropics. At least she has a job but she hadn't counted on working-and living-at a soon-to-be-opening Bed and Breakfast. Or playing house with sexy landscaper Connor McClain.
After escaping out from under his father's thumb, Connor looks forward to his work being simple. Then Faith stumbles into his life and, shortly after, out of her bath towel, and "simple" doesn't define the fiery attraction burning between them.
When Connor agrees to fill the role of Faith's pretend fiance, the lines between fantasy and reality blur. The fragile bloom in their hearts takes root and blossoms...into an unexpected emotion neither of them is ready for: Love.
Jessica Lemmon has always been a dreamer. At some point, she decided head-in-the-clouds thinking was childish, went out, and got herself a job . . . and then she got another one because that one was lousy. And when that one stopped being fulfilling, she went out and got another . . . and another. Soon it became apparent she'd only be truly happy doing what she loved. And since "eating potato chips" isn't a viable career, she opted to become a writer. With fire in her heart, she dusted off a book she'd started years prior, finished it, and submitted it. It may have been the worst book ever, but it didn't stop her from writing another one. Now she has several books finished, several more started, and even more marinating in her brain (which currently resides in the clouds, thankyouverymuch), and she couldn't be happier. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want. (While eating potato chips.) Jessica is an ex-meat-eater, writer, artist, dreamer, wife, and den mother to two dogs.
