Tom Lansing has returned to Webster determined to learn the truth about his childhood—and his father. Tom’s mother was once married to Wil Owens, but is Wil truly Tom’s father? In the midst of his search for the truth, he’s blindsided by a sassy blonde pixie with an exotic flair that matches her name—Zoe. Her outrageous flirting embarrasses the serious construction company owner, but Tom is attracted to her beautiful looks and kind heart.
As they each struggle to put the past behind them, can Tom convince Zoe they have a future together? With new beginnings ahead, can Tom forgive the man he believes deserted him—and can Wil make things right with his FORGOTTEN SON?
Zoe Jarrett squealed in delight. “Oh, Michaela! You wonderful girl. You got me a welcoming gift.” She clapped a hand over her chest and fluttered her dark eyelashes. Her voice lowered and deepened to a purr. “Looks like a big one, too.”
Michaela Reigh, owner of the beauty salon, The Hair Mousse, gaped, then giggled as she realized to what, or rather whom, her new employee referred. “He doesn’t come cheap, but he’s worth every penny.”
Tom Lansing, owner of Lansing Construction, looked over his shoulder from where he crouched on the floor. “Hey, Micki.” He stood up to greet the two women. “Had a few minutes so thought I’d check around. I’m not completely sure I know what you want.” His smile was polite even as his gaze traveled over the mostly blonde pixie standing next to his client.
“Don’t worry, handsome. I can clear up any mysteries.” She slid a glance at Michaela. “Don’tcha love a man in a tool belt?” She licked her lips and grinned as his face flushed red.
“Don’t scare him away before you see what he can do,” admonished Michaela with a smile.
