She could be The One

If he’ll let her in.

The rustic mountain town of Golden, Georgia, is the ideal place for crime scene investigator Deke Matthews to heal after a tragedy left him questioning everything. But there’s another reason he’s here, and moonlighting as an adventure guide provides the perfect cover. It doesn’t include falling for his boss.

After reading The Lawman’s Secret Vow, I wanted to see more of the Matthews brothers. Happily, I discovered Deke Matthews as the star of His Honor, Her Family, and his story proves just as fun to read as Dante’s.

Brought together in a small Georgia town, both on a break from their regular lives for the sake of family, Dante Matthews and Grace Harper have undeniable chemistry—but she needs to save her family’s business, while he works for her only to find out more about the suspicious man in his mother’s life. Neither one anticipated finding the other, which naturally leads into a few complications.

As their story together unfolds, I had a delightful time seeing how Dante and Grace grow, sorting through the challenges set before them. It’s romantic, it’s sweet, it’s heartwarming (all with a touch of mystery, of course)—these characters charmed their way into my heart, and I wholly enjoyed their story.
