An introverted doctor, a vivacious artist, and an island full of geriatric matchmakers. What could go wrong?
It might be Winslow Island’s annual Matchmaking Festival, but Tessa has more important things to worry about, like how to keep her mother’s bed and breakfast in business. She definitely doesn’t have time for an arrogant doctor with a sexy smirk.
Parker’s life is as precise and planned as the surgeries he performs. He’s on track for a career-making promotion – if he can improve his bedside manner. When his mother plans his father’s seventieth birthday party for the same weekend as the Matchmaking Festival, Parker suspects he’s in for a series of sneaky setups. He doesn’t expect a fiery redhead to crash into him in a shower of glitter, wreaking havoc with his plans and his heart.
Tessa is the only woman brave enough to tame his arrogance, and Parker holds the key to saving her mother’s business. Can they put aside their differences long enough to admit the attraction growing between them and get what they both need?
Or will a life-changing decision drive them further apart?
Join the residents of Winslow Island for a fun-filled, sweet romance – full of piggyback rides, scrumptious baked goods, and colorful characters guaranteed to make you come back for more.
“Is that him?” Gabby slapped Tessa’s leg like an overexcited Chihuahua. “That has to be him. Tessa, is that him? Tell me it’s him.”
Tessa laughed. “I told you I don’t know what he looks like.”
“Just look,” Gabby begged.
There was no point arguing with Gabby when she got something in her head. Tessa lowered her arms, the balloon bouncing against her thigh as she peered into the dwindling crowd. Her model had to be one of the few pedestrians heading this way.
Another couple with two pudge-cheeked kids and a scraggly furred dog.
Tessa couldn’t see any men walking alone. He didn’t mention traveling with anyone. “Are you sure you saw him? Which one did you think…”
Soft brown hair; eyes, too far away to notice the color but striking enough to make her heart feel like it was thumping inside of her throat. He wore a tight-cut charcoal-grey suit — more formal than anything her previous models wore — that hinted at hard curves beneath.
He definitely had the body of a model, but not hers.
He was beautiful.
Her models were usually elderly, with sagging skin and greying hair; the contours of their bodies made for soft, delicate strokes on paper. This man would be all hard lines and bold strokes.
His gaze found hers.
Tessa’s breath caught in her throat.
“Oh my,” Gaby squeaked.
