Summary: Katie Morris has spent the last six years caring for her sick father and struggling to keep the family bed and breakfast afloat. When news breaks that a major resort will be built in her tiny town of Mill Creek, Maryland, Katie is determined not to let it affect her life or her business. But when the resort owner’s handsome son arrives with an offer to buy her property, Katie quickly discovers that following her own heart may be the most complicated business of all.
Businessman Nick Reynolds is used to doing whatever his father, owner of Reynolds Resorts, asks of him, even if it involves questionable ethics. Construction is set to begin soon on their newest resort, but a stubborn landowner’s refusal to sell might throw a wrench into their plans. Nick’s only choice is to track down Katie himself and convince her to sell, by whatever means necessary.
It isn’t long before Katie becomes painfully aware of her growing feelings for Nick, but is his interest in her purely an act? And will Nick’s increasing respect for Katie and her faith be enough to change his heart?
