This is such a sweet story. I loved the characters and storyline. I liked how strong the females are in stories. Even though some are mean, the main character was able to stay calm and not sink to their level. She also fought to stay above her issues. The main male character is simply amazing. I love how his background is not so clean and how he had to survive. I honestly didn’t know this was the second book to series. It was great on it’s own. Now I can’t wait to read the first book. Happy reading my friends.
After fulfilling a pledge to a dying friend, Zacharias Hamilton is finally free. No family entanglements. No disappointing those around him. Just the quiet bachelor existence he’s always craved. Until fate snatches his freedom away when the baker of his favorite breakfast bun is railroaded by the city council. Despite not wanting to get involved, he can’t turn a blind eye to her predicament . . . or her adorable dimples.
Abigail Kemp needs a man’s name on her bakery’s deed. A marriage of convenience seems the best solution . . . if it involves a man she can control. That person definitely isn’t the stoic lumberman who oozes silent confidence whenever he enters her shop. Control Zacharias Hamilton? She can’t even control her pulse when she’s around him.
When vows are spoken, Abigail’s troubles should be over. Yet threats to the bakery worsen, and darker dangers hound her sister. Can she put ever more trust in Zach without losing her dreams of independence?
