Maggie had her entire life planned out since the age of twelve, looks like the joke was on her. As all of her carefully laid plans begin to fall apart she jumps at the opportunity to get away and spend a carefree summer down south.
When she arrives at Devereux Manor it all seems too good to be true. The home is beautiful, the town is inviting, and the sexy gardener promises to make this a summer she won’t soon forget.
However the more she learns about the elusive Ms. Devereaux she begins to realize that the carefully placed ad in front of her dorm room may not have been the happy coincidence that it once seemed. Maggie isn’t the only one who Ms. Devereaux has lured to the plantation, and Ms. Devereaux isn’t the only one with secrets to hide.
An opportunity of a lifetime, times two. Maggie and Aaron meet at the Devereaux Manor, both having accepted offers that were too good to be true. Maggie is just arriving to “house sit” this gorgeous plantation and she can’t help but notice the groundskeeper and all of is hotness.
Aaron has a past that Maggie quickly finds out about, this doesn’t deter her though and she sets out to pursue him. Aaron isn’t having it though…
“I like you Maggie.” Her heart thrilled at the confirmation. “I like you enough to tell you that you’re better off without me.”
“I should go,” he said reluctantly. “But do you want to?” she challenged. “No,” he conceded. “I keep telling myself I need to stay away from you. But it doesn’t seem I can.”
…he only wants to protect her which was so sweet of him. But wait…..it gets better! They can’t seem to resist each other and things begin to burn hot.
As the last firework erupted on the skyline he gripped her arms and spun her around to face him, claiming her mouth in one fierce move.
You won’t want to miss the scenes that follow that kiss!
But then there is also that sweet side again which it just as hot but even more romantic!
He made love to her slowly and sweetly, just as she’d asked. Caressing her, kissing her, loving her with everything he had. As their bodies moved in a slow, passionate rhythm her tears finally overflowed. She felt as if their souls were connecting, as if they had become one.
Amidst their summer of lust and love Aaron and Maggie are surrounded by odd occurrences, strange people that cross their paths, and a mystery that I was dying to solve!
I know how strange that sounds, but honestly what part of any of this doesn’t sound strange?
This story kept me guessing and trying to figure out what would happen….and you won’t believe what’s going on!!
