Cottonbloom is the perfect place for starting over, finding your way back home–and falling head over heels. . .
Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes–and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.
Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcee who shows up to the garage in stilettos–and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?
Back in Cottonbloom with the Abbot brothers! This is one of my favorite series. Cottonbloom, Mississippi is one of those small southern towns where everyone not only knows your name but pretty much all of your business!
So when the new woman in town, Ella Boudreaux, meets up with the Abbotts after Ford sold her his stake in the garage, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. More like fireworks and a lot of snarling on both sides.
Will Mack finally find love and heal his family? Will Ella open up enough to trust another man? This is a tale of forgiveness, love and family. There are always two sides at least to every story and it is going to take a big man and a big woman to get past these walls built of loss, abandanment and emotional abuse.
But if anyone can do it it will be those Abbott boys!
