Ten years ago, Duke King knew that getting involved with Grace Truman would only bring trouble into his already hard life. After all, the son of the town drunk has no business falling for the judge’s daughter…a passion that led to disaster and ended with Duke serving a ten year prison sentence. Duke never wanted to return to Destiny, especially now that he’s built a multimillion dollar custom car empire with his brothers. But when his sick aunt calls him home, he must face his past and discover a secret that instantly changes his life.
Grace never thought she would see Duke again, especially after years of silence. But when Duke comes storming back into her life, looking hotter than ever, and determined to get to know the son he never knew he had, she realizes that maybe she’d been wrong about him so many years ago. So Grace decides to make Duke a bet. If he can stay in the house with them for the next thirty days and prove he’ll be a good father, she’ll agree to letting him be part of his son’s life. If not, he’d better be prepared for a fight.
Going from single guy to family man isn’t going to be easy for Duke, especially with the still sexy, now fiery, Grace clouding his every thought. Can Duke be the man he never thought he could be or will his old bad boy ways be too much to conquer?
I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
Childhood sweethearts Grace and Duke fell in love young and against Graces fathers wishes as he didn't like Duke or his family. When something happens and Duke goes away for a few years Grace is left with more then she ever planned. When Duke comes back will they forgive each other and build a life or will their past ruin their future?
Grace and Duke had an undeniable chemistry even years later and you could really feel it. Both of them have been through so much that their journey really isn't a easy one but as a reader it keeps you gripped.
This is my first book by this author and I'm looking forward to reading more.
