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.
Swamps and Soirees
"Alligators are way safer than aristocrats."
Hanna, mired by duty and love, is stuck in the swamps that border the little town of Summerbrook. But she has dreams that soar like the white herons that grace her special waters. When she pursues those goals, however, she catches a snag in the form of a handsome Charleston aristocrat, whose bloodline runs blue and pure. Her heritage, however, is as muddy as Sinker, the sweet mutt she’s adopted. Unfortunately, the society she encounters is harsh and unaccepting, and Hanna—even with her brilliant financial abilities—doesn’t fit in anywhere. Disaster trails her like a storm surge following a hurricane. The dark, shallow waters beacon her back—to abandon her career and love and to embrace the simple peace she once had on the edge of her swamp because she grows to believe that “Alligators are way safer than aristocrats.”
