The last thing Elle expects to find in her Smoky Mountain hideaway is true love …
Research librarian Elle Dupre has the perfect date for her sister’s wedding—even her mother approves of good ol’ southern boy Carter Williford. Only, when Elle finds Carter tangled with a stranger on their flight to the wedding, Mr. Perfect doesn’t look so perfect. Lucky for her, she has a reservation at Oak Bramble Inn, a cozy hideaway in the Smoky Mountains where Elle is certain she’ll figure out how to recover her pride … and her heart.
Justin Tate doesn’t like complications or commitments, and five minutes next to uppity ex-debutante Elle—who writes him off after one look at his tattoos—are enough to tell him to steer clear. Unlucky for him, he’s her ride to Oak Bramble, the inn his family runs. Justin wants to keep his distance, but he’s pulled to Elle by circumstance and an undeniable attraction.
Can Elle and Justin let go of first impressions and open themselves to love?
