She's starting a new life...
Violet Calloway knows who she is. From an early age, she was taught how to pick the right clothes, the right job, and, most importantly, the right man. What she wasn't taught was how to be happy. But when her father dies, leaving her with a ramshackle building and the sparks of an idea for a new life as a bakery owner, Violet jumps at the chance. When her infuriatingly sexy new contractor shows up, sinking in her life savings and disappointing her family becomes the least of Violet's worries.
He's desperate to save his old one...
Nick Morello has made colossal mistakes in his life, letting down the people who love him the most. His best shot of proving to himself and his family that he's not the guy he used to be lies in the successful completion of Violet's shop. The family's construction business is on the line but if he gets the bakery done right, business will roll in.
Getting what they deserve...
He can't afford another mistake and she's already put so much on the line. Giving in to the sizzling attraction spells disaster but when Violet puts her hands on Nick, the best of intentions go down in flames.

About the Author
Emily’s Note: I’m not the author of this bio although every word is true. The write-up is compliments of my fellow Hale Street authors and partners in crime, Natasha and Amy. To clarify, yes, I have in fact pulled a cheese stick from the couch – more than once. I do wrangle children, two of them, and sometimes they aren’t cranky. My two cats, Captain America and Thor are possibly the most high-maintenance felines ever but they’re so dang cute. And all of this is made possible with a loving, totally put-upon husband who tolerates the voices in my head. I do have an office job but I prefer the aforementioned couch and a good book. Oh, and yes, I can cook but take-out is so much better!
