Love Happens Book 1
She lives in her mother’s shadow. He’s a bad boy who’s beaten the odds. Can they put aside their pasts to save them town and ignite their passion?
Attorney Lydia Mason yearns to be known as more than the mayor’s daughter. So when her tiny municipality falls on tough times, she vows to step up and come to the rescue. Serendipity strikes when the money arrives in the form of a former classmate turned millionaire.
Ethan Young wasn’t born into wealth; he had to earn it. But despite leaving his judgmental community behind and becoming a real estate mogul, one glimpse of his old flame floods him with his only pleasant memories of high school. And now that he’s back with all the riches he’ll ever need, he’s torn between helping the stunning woman and facing the familiar barrage of spiteful rejection of his blue-collar roots.
Taken in by his good looks and can-do attitude, Lydia knows she has an uphill battle convincing the resistant townsfolk to accept his cash. But Ethan has a genius plan to win their approval: have her legitimize his involvement by agreeing to pretend they’re an item.
Will their ploy to fake a relationship and revitalize their home lead to the real thing?
