The Southerland men should come with a warning label…
With her career imploding and a family history that reads like a trashy tabloid, Autumn Maddox can't afford any more disasters if she wants to hold her head up high when she returns to her old home town. So she's going to do the impossible—smile brightly at every "bless your heart," ignore the not-so-subtle digs, and pretend the town's sexiest bachelor is a monk. Well… two out of three isn't bad, right?
Dr. Jude Southerland doesn't care which side of the tracks Autumn came from. She's smart, gorgeous, and everything he didn't realize he wanted in a woman. And no, he doesn't give a hot damn what his family, his best friend, or the Ladies' Auxiliary thinks. The last woman anyone would pair him with is the only one he wants.
Jude's determined to be her knight in shining armor, but Autumn gave up on happily ever after, small southern towns, and herself a long time ago. It's going to take more than sweet tea and sweet talk to convince the woman of his dreams that their love is meant to be.
