She’s the home he never expected to find.
A battle for a charming Cape Cod inn…
But what happens when romance checks in?
Single mom Laura Lessoway won’t accept her mother’s plan of selling her late grandmother’s inn without a fight. But when big-city attorney Jonathan Masters arrives to arrange an offer from his client, she’s drawn to him. And working together as he helps with repairs only brings them closer. With his career and her home on the line, can they ever find common ground?
They walked outside and Jonathan studied the neighboring restaurant. “Mr. G’s Diner,” he said, reading the sign. “What do they serve?”
He gaped at her. He looked…different this evening. He still wore his dress shirt, but no jacket and no tie. He’d left the top button open at his neck, and he looked less in control, somehow, less “master of the universe,” but also more relaxed. More free.
He was holding the bag with the dishwasher brush and the rattraps in his left hand. Laura had to admit that there was something kind of swoon-worthy about a man who knew how to take apart a dishwasher, and who wasn’t afraid to wrestle rats.
“That’s not a real thing, is it?” he asked. “Irish-Indian fusion?”
“Oh, yeah, it’s real. And pretty decent, actually.” Now that they were talking about food, she realized she was hungry.
“What’s on the menu? Curry meat loaf? Corned beef tikka masala?”
“Uh, no,” she said. “But come on. I can tell you want to try it.”
He made a face. “Is it wrong that I’m scared?”
She laughed. “Yes, Harvard. Man up. A little experimental cuisine won’t kill you.”
“Are you insulting my masculinity now?” he asked, lips twitching. He was clearly more amused than annoyed.
She gave him a friendly little pat on the arm. “There, there, Harvard. Your masculinity is fine.”
He snorted. “Just what every man wants to hear from a beautiful woman.”
