Get your engine revving with this funny and heartwarming story of one woman’s happily ever after with a grease-stained knight.
Carmen Maclean is unmoored from her home and city when a long-term relationship turns violent. Determined to protect herself, Carmen heads to the small mountain town where her little brother lives, but her plans take a turn for the worse when car trouble leaves her stranded on the side of a lonely mountain highway.
Sawyer Stevenson is a divorced small town mechanic, scared to let himself fall in love again. Lately, he’s taken to burying his emotions in ways that border on scandalous. When he is tasked with fixing a Beetle better left to the junkyard, Sawyer is willing to accept the challenge. He didn’t count on meeting Carmen, or the feelings she would stir in him.
Carmen and Sawyer can’t get enough of each other, despite knowing it won’t be long before they have to say goodbye. Nothing matters to Sawyer but keeping Carmen safe when danger follows her to Willow Brook. For the first time in as long as either can remember they are looking forward instead of back, but what exactly does the future hold?
A sharp creak of rusty hinges echoed through the garage, making both men jump guiltily as the girl hopped down from the truck. She stretched, then her eyes met Sawyer’s, and a crooked smile inched over her face. Gathering up the mess of long, thick cinnamon strands from around her face, she began to twist them together into a braid as she navigated through the maze of machinery toward them. A pair of frayed, cut-off denim shorts displayed long pale legs, and a green cardigan hung around her slim form.
She yawned as she approached, hiding it behind the back of a freckled hand, and Sawyer’s heart did an odd little clench within the shelter of his ribs. He pressed the heel of his hand against the spot.
“I can’t believe I fell asleep,” she said, sheepishly. “I hope I didn’t drool in your truck, Dan.”
Sawyer’s dad waved a hand at her, brushing away her comment. “There’s been worse in that truck, I’m sure.”
Sawyer glanced at his father; then, before he could think of any comment to needle him with, his gaze strayed back to the woman’s face on their own accord. The bruise branded the freckle-dusted arc of her left cheekbone, an ugly mottled patch of bright green and blue spilling like oil across her fair skin. Sawyer curled his fingers into fists at his side. He had to force himself to look away from the mark. Anger, wild and targetless, rolled in his gut. He swallowed, hard. Dan was the first to break the silence.

Ready to make a new life for herself and her eight-year-old niece in their grandmother’s home, Callie Jones feels like things are falling into place. As a fiction editor and full-time parent to Sylvie, the new, safer neighborhood gives her a chance to breathe. At least until she meets her new neighbor—the enigmatic, serious, scorching hot Carter Chase. She sees right through his grumpy outer shell to the man who always seems to be there to help when they need it most. Single for longer than she’d like to admit, Carter tempts something deep inside her, but when Sylvie’s birth father returns to demand custody, the perfect life she’s trying so hard to build is threatened and her chance with Carter will have to wait.
Completely devoted to his job as CEO of his father’s charter jet and helicopter company SkyChase, Carter Chase has little time for anything else. He doesn’t mind—it’s his calling, plus a difficult college heartbreak assured he’d never take a chance on love again. But when his gorgeous new neighbor and her outgoing young niece start to turn his world upside down—he can’t remember why he never took time for himself. Ready to take a chance with Callie, everything falls apart with the return of Sylvie’s father. Can Carter convince Callie that he can be the man they both need?
A Wonderful Opposites Attract romance featuring a sassy preteen and adorable dog is just the book you need to curl up with. What’s better than a sexy man who knows what he wants? Fans of Melissa Foster and Tracey Brogan will love TOUCHING DOWN.
Realizing he was out of his depth and likely unable to keep from touching Callie, Carter pushed his chair back from the table. “I should probably get home. But this was wonderful, thank you.”
Callie frowned slightly but stood up as he did. “You’re welcome. We’ll do it again, okay?”
“Okay,” he answered. They were standing so close he could smell the coconut of her sunblock. It was intoxicating. “Have Sylvie bring Bo back when they’re done playing.”
“Will do.” She stuffed her hands in her pockets and stared at the ground.
Hating to see the disappointment in her beautiful face, Carter took a step forward and lifted her chin in his fingers. The brief touch sent a wave of sensation through him he’d never felt before.
Nothing could keep him from kissing her in that moment, especially when she licked her lips and her breath quickened across his fingers. He leaned forward and closed the distance, savoring the excited breath Callie sucked in as his lips drew near. Just as he was about to make contact, Sylvie slammed out of the backdoor, forcing him backward about three feet.
Nothing could keep him from kissing Callie—except for a noisy eight-year-old with a popsicle.
