Contemporary Romance Series
What's behind her beautiful mask?
FBI agent Kaden Farrell is on a mission. He's undercover at Fitzgerald House in Savannah, where a little girl is the key to his investigation. And that's what he needs to focus on, not a down-and-out heiress whose jeweled eyes haunt his dreams. Courtney Smythe might be spoiled, but when Kaden notices her ease with the children at the B and B, he sees the beauty beyond her looks. Getting close to Courtney will help his case, and giving in to attraction is the right thing to do. Even if it means perpetuating a lie.
Kaden was rejecting her? A handyman? She wanted to curl into a ball and hide. Instead, she whispered, “Stop?”
“I’m not here to entertain you.” He set a heavy hand on her shoulder, keeping her from moving closer.
“But we could... You’re a long way from Atlanta. Don’t you want...” Me? She never stumbled and stammered.
“It’s late and I need to...rest.”
He was making excuses? This couldn’t be happening. A handyman!
“No one ignores me,” she whispered. Louder, she snapped, “Just...just...stay out of my way.”
He pointed at her. “You’ve got it.”
A man had never looked at her with that kind of...animosity. The bushes rustled as he stomped away.
She slumped against the nearby palm tree. Why was her life out of control? She’d been ready to kiss him, and he’d shut her down.
The jerk! No man did that. Not to her. Somehow, she would figure out how to bring Mr. Kaden Farrell to heel.
And then she would treat him like the dog he was.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
This was overall, a surprisingly good read. It started out a little rocky and slow, but ended well. The story line picked up and the characters grew on me. It was, overall, an enjoyable read.
This is the fifth book in the series and this book is considered a standalone. I would agree with that for the most part, however, there were times where I felt like I was missing out on some information. It wasn’t enough to ruin the story or to leave me completely in the dark though. It was just enough to notice.
The female lead starts out as quite a prissy character – my least favorite. However, as the story progresses, her character seems to grow and mature, and becomes my favorite. Her love for all little kids is quite her saving grace to say the least.
I would recommend the story to you. It was enjoyable and I’d even venture out to say that I’d check out the other books in the series. I’m intrigued to say the least!
