​​​​Sweet Tea and Time

Some Southern girls don't wear pearls...

Charlene won’t let Aiken destroy her plans to become the first female home builder in her small town. Unfortunately, he keeps showing up at her job and on her grandmother’s porch, interfering with everything…and drinking sweet tea like he’s got no place to go. But she does, and she can’t figure out why he’s getting under her skin and simultaneously ruining her career goals when so much is at stake for her grandmother.

Aiken is mesmerized by Charlene’s simple, solid beauty…and her hard work. Each day he grows more certain that she’d be perfect as his site manager for the Humanity Project, an organization that builds homes for the disadvantaged. At the same time, however, he grows even more convinced that he’ll never get past her impenetrable walls because everything he does to build the house a little girl and her family so desperately need backfires…against Charlene.
