Woman in Charge by Sherry James

Has Elvis Really Left the Building . . . or is His Spirit Playing Matchmaker?

Alex Roy is used to building classy timber frame homes for the elite, but his last business association with a woman left him in debt and his heart in shreds. Is he so desperate to earn a paycheck and reclaim his business that he'll swallow his pride and design a shrine to the King of Rock 'n Roll in a widow's mansion? And what about Casey Burrows, the woman who wants to hire him to do the job for the wealthy widow? Alex has an eye for good lines—and Casey's are curving in all the right places. But can he handle the job and walk away with his heart and his reputation unscathed? Or will he end up as a permanent resident of Heartbreak Hotel?

Are You Lonesome Tonight? . . . the classic Elvis song seemed to be the story of Casey Burrows' love life. As co-owner for Studs 4 Hire she's got a great career—now she needs a man who will truly love her and not leave her with a shattered heart, and a maxed out credit card. When she meets Alex, she's determined to keep their relationship strictly business, but she soon discovers immortalizing Elvis in Omaha isn't the only project she'd like to undertake. Alex rocks her predictable world and Casey is ready to risk her heart one more time.

While Sherry James may be known for her cowboy romances, she proves she's equally adept at an urban romantic comedy set in her home state of Nebraska. Casey Burrows and Alex Roy steam up the pages with their romance--both have been burned in the past, and neither one wants to be involved. But they just can't help themselves when they're forced to work together on a project designing and building an Elvis-themed home for a diehard fan. The cast of supporting characters are endearing and hilarious. It was a fun, escapist read. (WOMAN IN CHARGE is the second in Ms. James's Studs-for-Hire series, and while they share supporting characters, this is a stand-alone story)
