Drew Ludington left town in shame almost a year ago. He vowed never to return. But his mother needs him back, and even after all that happened, family is important. He will only come back under one condition, though. His business partner has to come with him.
Carly Dubrow owes Drew a lot. He fell into her life almost a year ago when he needed a room at her small-town inn. After only a couple of nights, he offered to help her with her business in exchange for free room and board, and in a short time, he’d pulled her business out of the red. When he asks for a huge favor, she readily agrees, and she’s especially excited to hear he wants her to play his fiancée for the weekend. She’s had a months-long crush on this cowboy, so spending time around him sounds great.
As they get to know Drew’s family, though, Carly starts to feel a little guilty. She doesn’t want to deceive the wonderful people she’s meeting, but it’s clear Drew needs her. It’s very possible she’s falling for the town of Cupid Ridge as much as she’s fallen for its former resident.
This is a romance that includes no swearing, no violence, and no sexual content (beyond a few light kisses).
