Peek Inside Construction Beauty Queen

Matt Shaw just wants to run his business and spend time with the niece he’s raising on his own. Managing a spoiled-rotten princess he knows he’ll never be good enough for? Not part of his plan. But as he gets to know Chicago socialite Veronica Jamison, who's come to work in her family's business, he learns there’s more to her than her beautiful looks and designer clothes. She’s got a heart as rich as her background. But with the quirky townspeople rallying against Veronica inheriting her grandfather’s business, will Matt listen to them...or to his heart?

Chicago socialite Veronica Jamison is determined to shake off her sheltered lifestyle and overbearing parents. She heads to her grandfather's small town of Kortville, ready to roll up her sleeves and work for the family construction business. She'll prove her worth, even if it means answering to the company's ruggedly handsome co-owner, Matt.
