Then There Was You by Alexa Rivers
Her life crashed and burned, but she rebuilt from the ashes. Now a sexy stranger wants to take away the only thing she has left.
When Kat Hopa lost her husband, her B&B in Haven Bay became her sanctuary. With every room she renovated, she put a piece of herself back together too. So when Sterling Knight knocks on her door with an offer to buy her property, she isn’t interested–no matter how intriguing she finds the shadows behind his icy blue eyes.
Sterling is determined to prove himself at work, and that means ensuring that his company’s next project–on Kat’s land–is a success. Now all he has to do is convince the stubborn (and distractingly beautiful) owner to sell. Ignoring his intense attraction to her is impossible, and before long, Kat–and the tight knit bay community–are inching their way into his heart.
Kat never imagined she’d get a second chance at true love, and especially not with someone who’s as much in need of fixing as she is. Sterling never expected to meet a woman who’d make him consider giving up everything he’s worked so hard for. Can Kat and Sterling overcome their painful pasts to take a chance on happily ever after?
