One fake relationship . . . Ginny Michaels has always been a good girl and-ever since surviving a school shooting a little over a year ago-hailed a hero. Except she doesn't feel like a hero. She can't even have a one-night stand with sexy Wes Dalton properly. When her big city fling resurfaces in her hometown with an intriguing proposition, she's powerless to resist. A fake relationship is exactly what's needed to keep her small town's matchmakers at bay during the upcoming wedding season. If only her attraction to Wes were as easy to igre. Too many real kisses . . . Wes Dalton doesn't have many regrets, and that includes his night with Ginny. But he's always hoped to strengthen his relationship with his estranged family. When his father's health takes a bad turn, Wes puts his life on hold and moves to the meddling seaside town of Cape Hope. With his barriers in place-and a beautiful woman to help him hold them up-he's prepared for anything. Or so he thinks. Despite his determination to leave as soon as the summer is over, those fake kisses are starting to feel an awful lot like the real thing.
