Not until Brady Lowe's determined ways, crooked smile and home town charm make her want for more.

They may be adversaries, but Duke wants to show her he can be a better man, and prove how thankful he would be to be a part of her new start.

Her new rival—brash, cocky Duke—is hotter than her mama’s turkey gravy. Too bad he knows nothing about how to be gracious.
