An animal-sanctuary gamekeeper secretly in love with her artist neighbor is stunned when he shows her some attention, but as the two dance around a potential relationship, their emotional wounds get in the way.Years ago, the Mitchell family's famous artist father dropped the bombshell news that his son Ronan was illegitimate, though he'd been raised alongside the four legitimate brothers. In fact, Ronan and Mathias were told they were fraternal twins. Ronan moved to Happily Inc, California, and Mathias followed him, trying to mend their relationship, to mixed results. Feeling betrayed by his family and brother and mistrusting love, Mathias opts for one-night stands with the abundance of bridesmaids who visit the destination-wedding town. Still, he finds himself completely drawn to his neighbor Carol, the unassuming gamekeeper of the animal preserve that borders his property. Carol is just as drawn to Mathias, but she knows better than to expect that someone as handsome and talented as he is would be attracted to the likes of her. Yet as the two become friends, then closer, Mathias expends time and energy helping Carol raise money to create a herd for her beloved giraffe, Millie. However, when a planned gallery show sets up an emotional showdown within the Mitchell family, Mathias retreats to his typical safe distance and Carol can't muster the self-confidence to challenge him. Meanwhile, Carol's sister is dealing with her own romantic turmoil when an English duke comes to town and turns her world upside down. Mallery's second title in the new Happily Inc series (You Say It First, 2017, etc.) features her typical mastery of the romance format, with another quirky small town and a set of characters for her fans to love, complete with a mascot animal. The potent and prolific Mallery delivers again.
