Series Name&Number: Diamond Creek, Alaska Novels Book Four
Author: J.H. Croix
Susie Hammond is a romantic at heart and a meddling matchmaker to her friends. She had a near tragedy that shattered her trust in men a few years ago. While she wants love for everyone, guarding her own heart is more important than finding love for herself. Susie is beautiful, strong, independent, brash, funny…and most definitely not interested in Jared Winters.
Jared occupies the fantasies of many women in Diamond Creek and afar. He’s sexy, strong, enigmatic, and unattainable. His life is neat and tidy, organized down to the minute. Being a bachelor is simpler than dealing with the messy complications of a relationship. Susie is a hurricane force and a source of mischief and mayhem…most definitely not a temptation for Jared. Jared is just a tad too cool and collected for Susie. They drive each other crazy—in more ways than one.
For years, the spark between them has been on slow burn. When it finally ignites, passion and emotions explode. One scorching hot kiss leads to another and another and then some. As long as they’re not talking, their relationship is phenomenal. Events force them to face themselves and each other. Can Susie find a way to trust again? Can Jared let go enough to show her he’s worth trusting?
