This is an fun entry into a new series. The heroine and hero were totally enjoyable as they fought their various demons before finding love. At first I thought the premise a bit of a stretch but knowing small towns I decided it was plausible and just went with it. It was at times sad and most times funny. The supporting characters especially her mother and his father added to my enjoyment. The characters are well defined and the plot well thought out. I look forward to the next entry in this series.

This was a well-written, sweet book. Kitty Wilder lives in Hot Water, CA, and she is trying to live down her family's history of running the local house of ill repute. Dylan Matthews left town to become an FBI agent, but after eight years away he has to return to deal with a legal entanglement. The first in a two book series, it can be read as a stand alone book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Kitty Wilder and Dylan Matthews have ancestors who founded Hot Water, CA, (an Old West mining town) as the town madam and sheriff respectively. The story had a nice mix of small town and modern views which helped balance the mismatched lovers who are actually more compatible than they think they are. The characters were believable; the book had some funny moments; and the sex scenes were hot. Thanks to CR's California Girls for the copy of this book.

Dylan left Hot Water 8 years ago. The whole town thinks he is a hero, he doesn't. He was able to save 3 children, but not his best friend's wife. Before he left town, he and Kitty were married. It was supposed to be a pretend marriage, but Kitty made it legal without him knowing. Now he is back to get a divorce because he really isn't marriage material. Kitty has heard her whole life that Wilders don't get married and so she knows that she will have to end her marriage to Dylan. But, she doesn't want to do that. She wants to have the whole experience, marriage, mini van, children and respectability. She knows she will never have all of that while living in Hot Water. Is that what they really want, or can they have something great together?

It is so exciting to read new stories that make you laugh and enjoy the back in forth between characters destined to discover that they are meant to be each others forever! A hot FBI agent who discovers he's married to the girl he didn't realize he had left behind and the girl who just wanted minivans and happiness to escape a family notoriety make their struggle their strengths! This is such a feel good story and the characters worth investing your time in that this book is a "keeper" to read over and over especially on those days you need a pick me up!!

This was a really cute story with some really funny moments and very hot love scenes. There was also a secondary love story that I thought was good too. Looking forward to finishing up this series.
