There comes a time in every woman's life when she must get herself a man or give up the idea entirely... After three long years of patiently waiting for her reluctant, handsome, gentlemanly Amos Dewey, to pop the question, Augusta Mudd--owner of her small town's biggest factory--decides it's time to take matters in her own hands. With the help of her friend, ruggedly attractive Rome Akers, she's determined to make Amos jealous--and get him to the altar--before it's too late. Rome Akers wasn't ready to settle down. But by pretending to make Augusta his partner for life he had a chance to become her business partner instead. Yet despite his best intentions, the closer he gets to this intelligent, sweet woman, the stronger his feelings grow. Their tantalizing conversations and tender kisses ignite a desire more passionate than Roman ever imagined. Soon he'll do anything to make Augusta a bride--but only if he gets to be the groom.
Undeterred by her current swain's refusal to get married, 31-year-old ice company owner Augusta Mudd decides he needs a little competition to bring him to his senses. But the deal Gussie strikes with her plant manager to act as her new love interest in return for a partnership in the firm has unintended results; and while the summer wedding that Gussie is planning may take place on schedule, the major players may not be the ones she originally had in mind. Peopled with endearing characters, steeped in Texas small-town ambiance, and sprinkled with Morsi's characteristic gentle humor and lively charm, this heartwarming romance provides a generous slice of Americana, nicely spiced with a dash of the unexpected. Morsi (The Sweetwood Bride) is a RITA Award-winning author and lives in Texas. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
