A woman with a checkered past finds love in the least expected of places…


Sanura “Mac” McKie is a restaurateur who’s trying to put her past behind her. Running her business is her focus and has made her into a woman who’s unused to explaining her actions to others. Taking a delivery one morning changes everything.

Gavin Rawlins is an architect looking to start his own company and get away from his current boss. Wealthy and used to getting what he wants, he’s immediately enamored with the woman who stops by to deliver their lunch during a meeting. She’s completely different from the women he usually meets—those who want access to his money. It isn’t an issue for her, at least not in the way he’s used to.

His pursuit of her is hampered by an interfering mother, a few misunderstandings, and a past that keeps popping up to haunt her. When the smoke clears, will Gavin be able to keep the woman who’s become more to him than just his vision for the future? Can he get Mac to trust in his love and prove he’s out for more than a little taste of home?

“Yes, Mother.”
That voice she recognized. Deep and resonating, making her insides tremble with longing for a taste of what he had to offer. It belonged to the man himself—Gavin Rawlins. She pulled back out of her vehicle and looked for him. They were getting into a sleek black car with tinted windows. As he held the door for his mother he looked up as if he’d felt her presence. His gaze zeroed in on her and she knew it. Hers had done the same. She knew she was far enough away he couldn’t see the heated blush that raced to her cheeks. Or notice the trembling. The woman said something else and he nodded once before shutting the door and walking around to his side. As if in slow motion he turned his gaze from her and climbed into his car.
Sanura waited a few moments before she headed back across the lot into the diner, utilizing the time to allow her heartbeat and breathing slow down again. She entered the through front door and answered the greetings that reached her. After she had talked to many people, she strode back to the office and opened the door.
Allison sat on the couch with a huge smile. “We got it. It’s for twenty people. In three weeks on a Saturday. Look at what she is paying.”
Allison held up a check that made Sanura’s eyes bug out. “That much? What did you do, misquote her?”
Allison’s blonde hair bounced in time with her action. “No. This was how determined she was to get our business. By the by, she mentioned her son recommended us. What did you do to that poor southern boy?”
“I didn’t do nuttin’.” Sanura’s cheeks flamed as her mind sketched a picture of what she would like to do to that man. “What makes you think I did anything?”
From the look Allison gave her, she knew her cheeks had flushed. The arching of her eyebrow told Sanura she didn’t believe one single word she uttered.
