Candi Heart is layers of
mystery in a very appealing package. A lethal
combination for Sheriff Grady Wallace. With a nickname like
"Candi Heart" and a plan to open a frilly lingerie and
perfume shop called Heart's Desire,
Lark Hensley knows she may raise some eyebrows by moving to
quiet little Angel Ridge, Tennessee. She hopes no one
remembers that the women in her family were once accused of
being seductive witches by townsfolk, and that decades ago
her moonshiner grandpa committed a deadly crime. Lark has
questions she can't answer and secrets she doesn't want to
share, especially with Angel Ridge Sheriff Grady Wallace,
even if Grady is hard to resist.
Grady falls hard and quick for the new mystery woman in
town, though he's determined to find out what she's hiding.
Angel Ridge's one-woman Welcome Committee, Dixie Ferguson,
has taken a liking to Candi Heart, and Dixie's instincts
about newcomers are rarely wrong. But maybe not this time . . .
Grady never intended to follow the Wallace family tradition
of lawmen, but when his father died young, rebellious Grady
grew quickly into the role of staunch town defender. Candi
Heart may not have meant to bring trouble to his town, but
she has. Someone does remember her family. That someone
wants her to leave . . . or to die. An unknown driver tries
to run her down. Her shop is broken into. Rumors begin to
swirl. Suddenly Grady is caught between his duty and his
heart's desire for Candi Heart.
