Aurora “Rory” Pike gave up her dream of becoming an opera superstar long ago. Now she’s content to teach music to the children of Snow Creek while helping her family recover from the wildfire that devastated them. After a messy breakup and a ghost from the past resurfacing, she’s examining her priorities…and they don’t include a passionate kiss from womanizer Brock Steel.
Brock Steel just watched his skirt-chasing mentor—his cousin Donny—give up his playboy ways and fall hard for Callie Pike, sister of Rory Pike, the most beautiful woman in Snow Creek. Rory just ended a relationship, and Brock makes sure he’s there to pick up the pieces. Physically, that is. Emotionally? Brock doesn’t do emotion.
Chemistry between Brock and Rory proves to be hotter than either of them imagined, and it provides a welcome respite, especially for Brock, who’s dealing with a conundrum. As bits and pieces of seemingly unrelated evidence emerge, he must come to terms with the fact that his renowned family may not be the paragon he thought they were.
Praise for Helen Hardt
"Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading a book. It's more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while." -Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews
"Flawlessly written, and in my opinion a work of art..." - Girly Girl Book Reviews
"This book was fantastic. It was steamy, funny, romantic, and just about any other emotion you can think of..." –Steamy Book Mama
This is a beautiful love story between two people who weren’t ever supposed to be together. The story moved along and didn’t drag at all... Great read for those who love historical romance, and even if you don’t, I say try this series.
