Bestselling author Liam Wyndham needed an escape, and Half Moon Bay, with its small town charm and beautiful ocean, is the perfect place to enjoy his writer’s block in sweet isolation. But all of his plans to become a surly recluse disappear when spitfire carpenter, Georgie Sacchi, marches into his house.

Georgie wants an adventure, and she has a plane ticket that promises her everything she needs—excitement, independence, and a way to escape the memory of her last ruined relationship. Still, she has one last job to complete before she can leave the country. The last thing she needs is a recalcitrant author with a gorgeous face (and a hot body) distracting her from her plans.

But life doesn’t always give you what you think you need…

One of the main reasons I read is to be swept away. Some people love the excitement of Hogwarts, the mystery of Narnia, or the hills of The Shire.
