When journalist Lucas Ruiz Morales returns to Arcadia Valley to help his ailing grandfather, he’s definitely not looking for love. After a disastrous marriage and a health scare, he plans to focus hard on a new book project about wellness and organic food.
After being harassed by her employer in Twin Falls, Veronica Quintana is back working as a hostess at El Corazon, living with her domineering older brother, and feeling desperate to regain her independence and self-esteem. The last thing she needs is to develop feelings for an older man who’s every bit as overprotective and macho as her three brothers.
But when Lucas needs an assistant for his book project, Veronica has no choice: it’s the only job in Arcadia Valley that can help her meet her goals. And Lucas turns out to be a kind and caring — if very bossy—boss. But there’s something about Lucas that Veronica doesn’t know… something that may cut out any possibility of a future together. Can the Arcadia Valley community help two determinedly-independent people realize they’re perfect for each other?
