Shannon Stacey has done it again in a series that is touching this reviewer’s heart. I loved how a big, bad and macho man like Sean Kowalski turns all lovey dovey with a woman like Emma. Now Emma she is devious at heart yet when it comes to Sean her heart just keeps getting in the way. She knows a man like Sean will never settle down, but a woman can wish. The passion between them is hot and man these two are perfect for each other. Shannon Stacey did a great a job in showing us how vulnerable Sean is as he is always searching for a home and Emma is definitely the home he needs. I loved it and will definitely be looking for more. This book is worth grabbing for Shannon Stacey knows passion and romance.
Emma Shaw needs a husband, and fast! Not because she's interested in romance—after all, she's too busy with her landscaping company—but because Grandma Shaw is coming to town, and she will have nonstop questions about Emma's (stagnant) love life.
Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he's recruited by Emma to be her fake fiance. Sean doesn't like the deception, but he can't help his attraction to the feisty brunette. A little pretend kissing won't hurt anyone—especially when there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home. But when fake, innocent kisses lead to very real, explosive sparks, Emma and Sean discover that their big ruse might just lead to happily-ever-after….
