Pursued by an unwelcome suitor, banker’s daughter Penny Castlerock will do anything to escape town and Mr. Abbott’s advances – even visit her grandfather’s homestead for an undetermined amount of time. Out of her element, she must rely on neighbor Jonas White and his brood of adopted children.

Scandal chased Jonas out of Philadelphia five years ago. A scandal that socialite Miss Castlerock knows about. Since then, Jonas has kept to himself, worked his homestead, and focused on raising his seven adopted boys and his daughter. The last thing he needs is to be reminded of the past and the young woman he once fancied – especially when she’s so far out of his sphere…

As circumstances force the two to work together, their tentative friendship blossoms into something more. But can two people from such disparate backgrounds find true love with each other?


If you like slow burns, this book is for you. I normally do, but not with this one. I couldn’t connect with either of the characters. I wasn’t a fan of Penny. She was wishy-washy. Jonas was alright. It must have been hard for a man in his position and everything that happened with Millie.

I don’t remember much of what was going on. I ended up skimming most of the second half. Maybe I just read this at the wrong time.
