All their dreams will come true…

if they can work together.

Widow Paisley Wainwright’s so close to taking her Texas event-planning business to the next level by turning Renwick Castle into a wedding venue. Only one thing stands in the way: her longtime rival, Crockett Devereaux, who wants the building to become a museum. When the building’s owners insist they collaborate to implement both plans, can Paisley and Crockett put their differences aside…and fight for their dreams together?

“You’ve been here since dawn.”

“I wanted everything to be perfect.”

“And it was.” Much like her. “I have to admit, I was skeptical.”

“You skeptical? No way.”

“All right, sassy.” Releasing her hand, he swept a lock of that gorgeous red hair away from her face. “What you did here… You have a gift, Paisley. Not everyone can take a run-down barn and turn it into something beautiful.”

“Oh, this barn is not run-down.”

“Still, you heard what Samantha said. This was better than what they’d originally planned.”

She was quiet for a moment. “That’s why I enjoy planning weddings. Seeing the awestruck looks on the couples’ faces and knowing that I made their dreams come true is very satisfying.”

If he were a better man, he’d do everything in his power to make her dreams come true. “You’re an amazing woman, Paisley. I’m sorry I ever doubted you.”
