Moving to small-town Revival, Illinois, Sophie Kincaid, with her reputation in tatters and her boss in jail, is determined to lay low, but her new landlord, a gorgeous 6’4” deputy sheriff, who believes she is an entitled city girl, has something else in mind.
Country and city, strapping and petite—these new neighbours have literally nothing in common. Are the fireworks crackling between them pure irritation—or something a whole lot hotter?
With her professional reputation in tatters—and her boss in jail—Sophie Kincaid has no choice but to move to small-town Revival, Illinois, until the dust settles, where her best friends have arranged a job and a house for her. For six months, she’s pretty sure she can handle anything—even her new landlord and neighbour, Ryder Moore. A magnetic 6’4” deputy sheriff, Ryder’s good looks and habit of flirting with intent to seduce are an infuriating distraction—and, to Sophie’s alarm, an undeniable temptation.
Ryder knows Sophie’s type—entitled city girl—and it’s not one of his favourites. Add in her snarky sass and her propensity for trouble and she’s not exactly his ideal tenant. But something about the curvy little blonde fires Ryder’s imagination, not to mention his desire. Soon enough their verbal sparring seems like a prelude to something much more physical—and far more pleasurable. Is love right around the corner—or just right next door?
