Spring’s Tender Heart
Jonah Mason, Earl of Glassborough, thought he had closed his heart to love. It would have worked, had a beautiful woman not fallen—literally—into his arms. Finding no one to help her, Lady Emma Randolph had fled her stepbrother’s grasp to avoid a horrid marriage and save her own fortune. When fate thrust her into the safe hideaway of the scarred Earl of Glassborough, she found herself questioning her decision to flee to America. But…the day her demented stepbrother arrived on the earl’s very doorstep, her only choice was to flee once again. Yet, could she? Should she?
Colton Green knows exactly what he’s going to do with his life. He’ll run the Red Widow Bourbon factory—a business that’s been in his family for generations—build a beautiful home, marry a nice country girl, and start a family. Then he meets Grace Baker, and all his plans go out the window. She’s the last woman he should want: a big-city lawyer who’s accepted a case against his best friend. There’s no reason to think she plans to stay in Elm Ridge, let alone that she wants to settle down with the likes of him. Still, he’s drawn to her like he’s never been to anyone.
