It's a surprise twist for an adventuresome author when sparks fly in the Blue Ridge Mountains in this romance novel by the USA Today bestselling author. Romance author Sloane Russo turned a decade of whimsical travel into a career writing steamy novels set in exotic places. Now she needs to take a temporary job in the Blue Ridge Mountains to bankroll her next far-flung adventure. But tutoring thirteen-year-old Bree comes with a seriously distracting temptation: Bree's half-brother is hot, handsome, and oh-so-hard-headed. Gavin Carmichael isn't some impulsive Don Juan like the men in Sloane's novels. Working hard to raise Bree on his own, he acts like he's never even heard of fun. But behind his gruff exterior is a broken heart that longs for something more. Sloane is way too unpredictable to be his idea of a good tutor, but the sexy anti-nanny may be his perfect match.
