A new book from the inspiring Simmons is always a wonderful treat. This heartfelt and charming story is filled with warmth and passion. A real winner!

Following the untimely death of her parents, New York socialite Gillian Charles was raised by her beloved grandparents. With Jacob Charles' recent death, Gillian is alone once more. However, her grandfather has one more trick up his sleeve. In order to claim part of her inheritance, Gillian must move to Sweetheart, Indiana, for six months and use Sam Law as her attorney.

Sam returned to Sweetheart after living and working in New York for a number of years. Having to baby-sit a socialite is not high on his list of priorities. But Gillian shatters Sam's preconceived ideas—even Max, Sam's women-hating dog, falls under her spell.
