Gemma Munroe loves hard, laughs hard and plays hard. Or at least she did before today. Her dream is finally within her grasp – owning the toy shop in Swallow’s Fall and establishing herself permanently. Only one person has the power to get in her way: Josh Rutherford – the love of her life who kissed her and left her ten years ago is coming home.

Josh will be in town for five days. Only five days. He’ll finally sever the ties to a youth filled with poverty by selling the properties that are now his. He’s returning healthy, wealthy and emotionally stable, and then he’ll leave forever. It’s all in the plan. Everything…except for Gem. He never forgot her, but he definitely forgot the effect she has on him. Now she’s got problems, and he can’t seem to leave without trying to help her solve them.

The town itself also has its own plans: Gemma and Josh are thrown together in Speed-Date fiascos, kissing experiments, bar fights and an issue with the North Star – Josh’s compass and the road to his next adventure. Seven weeks later Josh is still in town. Gem has to get through her best friends’ wedding and Josh has to get over Gem. Because he’s not staying. Is he?

EXCERPT




‘I was hoping we could have our business chat.’

’Oh, business.’ Gem fiddled with her large hoop earrings. Beneath her fleece-lined jacket she wore a thick white V-necked T-shirt and she’d been warm enough for the winter cold, but now she felt hot—and a little bothered.

‘I was wondering—what your position is,’ Josh said. ‘And if you needed help in some way. I mean—are you in a position to make the purchase?’

‘Yes.’

‘Are you sure?’

No, but she wasn’t going to let Josh know that. ‘I wouldn’t mind a week or two to gets things finalised.’

‘No problem. And what about the flat above? Are you intending to live in it?’

‘Of course. Where else would I live?’

‘I’ve got a place in mind. A five minute walk out of town.’

‘What place?’ she asked, frowning.

He shook his head. ‘Maybe later. Let’s stick to the shop for the moment.’

‘Actually,’ she said, ‘I am a little busy. Can we have this chat tomorrow?’

Josh looked up at the wall art.

Gem had created history with her mural of the town, but she couldn’t tell from Josh’s expression what he was thinking.

‘It’s not graffiti,’ she said. ‘Don’t utter that word unless you top it with “art”.’

‘I wasn’t about to say anything except … it’s stunning. It’s got flair. And charm.’ He looked her up and down then grinned. ‘Bit like you. When you’re not covering up whatever it is that’s bothering you with your temper.’
