Twenty-eight-year-old, former fat-girl, Kate Delaney left New Falls, Tennessee, heartbroken but determined to be a successful screenwriter. She’s spent the last ten years in Los Angeles, but is back in town, fifty pounds lighter, California hotter, and she’s written The End on a screenplay, which a Hollywood mega-producer believes is movie magic in the making. Just one problem—a nerve-nuking thief absconds with her laptop, attached USB back-up, and the contents of her underwear drawer, and just in case that wasn’t enough, the heartbreaker from ten years ago just walked through the door wearing a sheriff’s badge and looking more hormone-carbonating than ever.
Quentin Taylor likes the new and improved Kate, but to be perfectly honest, the feelings he’s always had for her aren’t new. Unfortunately, when a teenaged Kate bloomed, her older brother Reese established a no-look, no-touch, no-anything else rule. Quentin figured it was the anything else that worried him most. She’d been attractive then. Now she was near irresistible, and he wanted to know one thing. Did Reese’s dictate still stand? Besides, he has more pressing problems—a meddling, matchmaking mother, a gossiping dispatcher/receptionist with an obsession for the color orange, and a small-town burglar who steals thimble collections, garden tools, and underwear, along with the usual electronics and jewelry. Yet, he agrees to help Kate find her missing script, and the time they spend together sparks an undeniable chemistry.
Yet, once Kate’s screenplay is back in her hands, will she return to L.A, leaving Quentin behind forever, or is their romance destined to be a blockbuster?
