Single mom Lizbeth Kane wasn’t exactly construction-worker material, but she truly wanted a job — and Matt Hallahan found her radiant smile utterly irresistible! When the virile hunk with the perfectly tanned chest agreed to hire her as a laborer, Lizbeth felt her heart — and her libido — send up a cheer. Since her divorce from a snobby philanderer, she’d frankly lost interest in men, but this macho carpenter who smelled of sawdust and musk made her senses sizzle. Matt was a ride through white water, a shot of adrenaline that revived her flirting instincts — but teasing a man of action had deliciously dangerous romantic results! Matt was charmed by Lizbeth’s enthusiasm, her spunky kids and wacky aunt, and did his best to seduce the lady in every room of her ramshackle home. Lizbeth worried that they were too different, that he was overly protective, that she’d make him a terrible wife. Could Matt prove she needed him as much as he needed her?
