A CBA Bestselling AuthorWhen fun-loving artist Willow West meets buttoned-up George Emerson, she's intrigued -- but it's not exactly love at first sight. Willow wants the obsessive-compulsive, newly retired English teacher to loosen up and embrace life, but it seems like a lost cause. A confirmed bachelor, George vacillates between irritation and attraction whenever Willow is around. He's not interested in expanding his horizons or making new friends; it just hurts too much when you lose them. But as the summer progresses, George feels his defenses crumbling. The question is, will his change of heart be too late for Willow?
