Divorcee Madison McKay has no place else to go — literally. Her cheating ex drained their accounts, saddled her with a mountain of debt, then left the country. She did the only thing she could to support her kids, sold their big house in the city, and moved to her grandmother’s farm, where she could stay rent-free while she worked and tried to pay down the bills. Her children resent losing their city life, and while Madison isn’t happy about it either, there’s nothing she can do.
Neighbor Wade Ellis is Madison’s only ally — at least when he’s not driving her nuts. The quintessential redneck, he is everything she despises in a human being. But she can’t deny that underneath all the flannel, facial hair, and coarse talk, he is a good person. Even better, he connects with her angry children and helps them accept their new way of life.
Millionaire recluse Wade Ellis has turned his back on his fortune, choosing to live a simple life, giving his money to charity and using none on himself. Madison is everything Wade cannot stand in a woman. Spoiled and pretentious, she’s used to the finer things and makes no secret of it. But when he sees how hard she’s trying — and failing — he feels like he has no choice but to help her. Especially because underneath her designer duds, she has a heart of gold. The trouble is, once Madison realizes that he won’t ever go back to the life he left behind, the one she desperately wants, even though he can, will she still take him as he is?
