Overview

He hired himself a runaway bride, then just had to help heal her heart....

Through the window of his Dixieland Grill, Sam Ballard got an eyeful of the blonde in a bridal gown and wondered what wrong turn she'd taken to end up in a broken-down limo in Pinckney, Georgia! Annie Bridges didn't know what she wanted out of life, but it sure wasn't a wedding to a man she barely knew. Could a spitfire with smarts find a happy ending with a small-town hunk who made her laugh and loved her all night long?

Sweet and sassy, Charlotte's Hughes's tale of a lady on the lam and a country lawyer in love sparkles with spicy humor and sizzles with sultry heat. He'd figured her for a spoiled society brat, who'd turn out to be nothing but trouble, but when she proved a whiz at work and a pleasure at play, could he charm her into giving marriage one more chance?

Read an Excerpt

"What drives you wild, Annie?" Sam asked as he nipped the back of her neck
playfully.

"Wouldn't you like to know."

"Yes, as a matter of fact, I would. What does it take to find out?"

She faced him. "No way. A girl has to have a few secrets."

"I like mysterious women," he said with a smile.

"What's the smile for?" Annie asked.

"You want me to kiss you, don't you?"

She blushed. "What makes you say that?"

"I can tell. You have that look. You want me."

She laughed, but she could feel the blush spreading. "Oh, I do, do I?"

"It's written all over your pretty face, Annie."

"Oh, good grief!"

"Admit it, Hartford. You want my body. You've wanted it since you first laid eyes on me. Well, guess what?"

Laughter bubbled out of her. "What?"

"I'm yours, baby."

She felt something in her stomach dip. He turned her around in his arms and
gazed down at her face. She tried to look serious, but it was difficult. "I don't want to rush you, Sam."

"Rush me, Annie. Please."
