Sheriff Milo Gray doesn’t want to admit he’s out of his league when it comes to his two spirited daughters, but when they accidentally cause chaos in Iris McPhee’s pretty new bakery, he’s in trouble. Big time. Because he’s been sweet on Iris ever since she stepped foot in town...and he’s pretty sure she hates him. Which is too bad, because his heart has been lonely for a long time.
Iris McPhee has always worked hard to keep handsome Milo Gray at arm’s length, but working in the same town makes it impossible–not to mention what his little girls and their dog do to her shop. When she sets aside her anger at him, she finds something surprising in her heart–affection. He just might be a kindred spirit, but she’s harboring a terrible secret, a sorrow so great she fears no man will ever want her. But with his every kindness, every touch, every kiss, does she dare hope for the impossible...Milo’s love?
