Love at first sight. It’s every girl’s dream. But Tara Simpkins is finding out it’s not as easy as it seems. Is this truly the man God sent to be her husband, or is she just desperate to escape her loneliness? The recent loss of both parents has left her reeling, and close friends don’t think she’s in any position to make major life decisions. She and her new-found love are convinced they can live happily ever after in the home of their dreams. His family thinks he’s moving way too fast and might disappoint the kind-hearted woman he’s fallen head over heels for. And then there’s Leah. Leah is supposed to be part of his past, but what if she decides she’s his future? Tara’s match made in Heaven may be over before it truly begins.


Excerpt

Uninclined to decode his personal agenda, Luke bided time until his brother spoke. “Why doesn’t that answer surprise me? Leah?”
This family has a fixation with that woman. “I’m a free man. I can date whomever I choose.”
“The grapevine says she’ll arrive in St. Louis on Friday. A month earlier than planned. Guess she didn’t accept your answer.”
Luke chuckled. “Now she knows that proposing to a disinterested man has consequences. Besides, holding false expectations is a character flaw I hate.”
“Really? Expecting marriage after a five-year relationship is holding false expectations? No wonder her dagger is out.”
“That’s a low blow,” Luke said through laughter. “Association, not relationship, is a better description.”
“Stop parsing words.” Andy sat on the sofa’s edge. “You were an item with her. Even if no one liked her.”
“I didn’t like her either. So there you go.”
“Five years is a long time to sleep with a woman you detested. Her proposal shouldn’t surprise you.”
“As my declining shouldn’t surprise you. Or would you condemn your brother to marriage with a con artist due to prior bad judgment?”
“Heartless, bro.” Andy sighed. “Explain why Tara’s a keeper after two weeks.”
Luke eyed the clock on the wall unit. “How much time do we have?”
Andy made up his mind quickly. “Plenty. I wish to hear whatever you want to say.”
Shifting position, Andy maneuvered three throw pillows beneath his head.
