She was the high school "plain-Jane," then she put her dreams on hold to help her ailing parents. Now Maddie Ingram is Hannaford Valley's "spinster librarian," and she's fed up with being ordinary. But the minute she starts stirring things up in her small town, she gets challenged by the last person she'd ever expect — Chevy Ballantyne, the middle Ballantyne brother who is a lot more than meets the eye . . .
Studious and shy, Chevy preferred a quiet, peaceful life. He wasn't at all ready for the Maddie he met at his brother Kirkland's party — a feisty, sexy woman more than willing to stand up for herself. But the sparks between them are igniting hopes he'd never imagined — and now Chevy will do and risk anything to show Maddie they couldn't be more right for each other.
