Sometimes the best choice is simply to follow your heart.
Jenny Kline's whole life is centered around chasing her dream to be an artist—a painter. Sure, she works two jobs to make ends meet, but she tells herself the life she's building will be perfect—until she finds out she's lost not one of her jobs, but both of them. At first, the offer of employment as a temporary receptionist at the Hardy Falls police department seems like a no-brainer. That's before she's stuck behind a desk all day dealing with cranky townspeople and lusting after a certain gorgeous cop she's been trying to ignore for years.
Harry Newman has been avoiding Jenny since the moment he joined the Hardy Falls police force. After all, he might think she's sexy as hell, but her mother is the chief of police—and his boss. He knows it's better to stay far away, but that's hard to do when Jenny is in his personal space every day. She's a temptation, and all Harry wants to do is get closer—to hell with the consequences.
Despite their best intentions, the chemistry between Harry and Jenny sizzles. Then Harry's past raises its ugly head, Jenny tries to help, and their mutual attraction explodes into a night of passion neither of them expected. Will they be brave enough to continue what they've started? Can Harry put the past behind him and walk into the light? And will Jenny be able to chase her dreams and hold on to Harry at the same time?
Welcome to Hardy Falls, Pennsylvania, where even the best-laid plans have a way of flying right out the window—especially when love comes knocking on the door.
