Heart of Gold

It took one look at the old Tucker Plantation and Kylie was in love. She was looking for a place to belong and make her own and all signs pointed to the Plantation. After an "accident" she wakes to find herself being rescued by the handsome Gil Baker, a descendent of Gilmore Tucker.

Gil arrived at the Plantation hoping to reunite Gilmore with his long lost love, Paradise by sprinkling her ashes on his grave. The instant and intense attraction that Gil and Kylie share is undeniable but the evil that still lingers isn't happy about what is going on.

Great quickie, I was disappointed that the story wasn't longer but only for selfish reasons because I didn't want to leave Tucker's Plantation. I loved that Kylie believed that her view on things was the right only to find out that something's aren't always what you think they are.

Gil is charmer and it totally comes across in the story. And I love that he is a self-admitted card carrying hopeless romantic. Anytime that Ms. Ashford wants to travel back to Tucker's Plantation I will willingly go along for the ride.

Book Blurb for Heart of Gold

Local “history” says Gilmore Tucker sold Paradise, the beautiful slave he loved, and murdered his wife. So why is Gilmore trapped in his old plantation house, lamenting his lost love and fending off the evil bitch he married?

Enter Kylie Goldheart, looking for a place to belong and hoping the abandoned Tucker’s Plantation will be it. After cracking her noggin by a push from a not-so-friendly ghost, she’s rescued by Gil Baker, Gilmore’s descendent, who has returned to honor his ancestors by reuniting Paradise with her soul mate…if sprinkling her ashes on Gilmore’s grave can be considered an appropriate reunion.

The attraction between Kylie and very sexy Gil is intense, but their instant romance riles the evil lingering among the crumbling ruins of the magnificent old house.

Publisher Note: Previously published elsewhere under the title Tucker’s Paradise, but has been expanded for EC.
