BEAUTY AND THE BLACK SHEEP

Author(s): 
Keeping her crumbling B&B afloat takes all of Frankie Moorehouse's time and energy, leaving no room for love. At the end of a horrible day, her cook quits, but chef Nate Walker shows up just when she needs him. Letting sexy Nate get close personally takes longer, but it's safe for Beauty and the Black Sheep (4.5) to have a fling. Nate's leaving shortly, and Frankie's priorities haven't changed. Or have they? Jessica Bird gives us a romance of rare depth, humor and sensuality, bringing two damaged people together in a completely believable manner.
