Beloved author Sandra Chastain heads for the Georgia hills in this sexy tale of love between a backwoods gal and a city slicker who’s in for the ride of his life. Callie Carmichael doesn’t have a clue how much her granddaddy’s classic convertible is worth. All she knows is that the yuppie from Atlanta flashing an expensive watch won’t be buying it for any amount. However, when she sees that Matthew Holland has sacrificed the knees of his well-tailored pants to help her pick strawberries, Callie wonders whether there’s more to this uptown guy than she first thought. Or is he the kind of two-faced wreck that sent this free spirit packing in the first place?
With his millions in the bank, Matt is used to getting whatever he desires. But Callie has him slamming on the brakes. The barefoot, basket-weaving gal with the distracting blue eyes is blowing his mind like no top-down roadster ever could. All of a sudden, the car isn’t as important as the woman behind the wheel. Matt just isn’t sure he can afford the one thing he really needs: to shift gears and take a chance on the road to love.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Mistletoe and Magic, Claimed, and After the Kiss.
About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after. --Sandra Chastain
