At an early age Leela Lou Dahlin started reading the romance novels her grandmother left around the house during her summer vacations. She learned early that she enjoyed the type of story that could make you feel like you had fluttering butterflies in your stomach and she spends her time creating stories that are spicy with a side of sweet.
Candace “Candy” Shugarmore has been running away from a situation for 3 years. Her plan was to find herself, get a job, and live her life without the bane of her existence Hunter Keegan. The boy came into her life as a wild teenager and had been accepted by her father in ways she never was. She should have hated him, but she didn’t. Candy admired how the bad boy had changed into a dominant player, but when her father exposed her crush in front of the whole company, she’d had it. The plan was to move away and forget about Hunter. It hadn’t worked. Her father brought her back with a proposition that she couldn’t refuse. Candy was determined to prove that she’d left that crush far behind.
Hunter had always known what he wanted, and it wasn’t scraping by like his parents had. Being dragged to work with his mother as a punishment change his life. Hunter had broken an heirloom while playing in the boss’s office, and it created an uproar. What had seemed like the end of everything, his mother’s job for starters, had swept him under the wing of Mr. Schugarmore, as a protégé. After all these years and all he’s acquired from his mentor, there is nothing he wanted more than Candy. She’d vanished, but now she’s returned, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his.
