The Gingerbread House
After a tumultuous past, Greta Kendall has focused mainly on her bridal shop, located on the first floor of her beloved Queen Anne Victorian near Aspen. For two years she’s fought to save her house from Stephanie Harwood of Harwood Development, who is intent on destroying her home to build a new mall. But now Greta’s running out of time. The town council is about to approve the final plans for the mall.
When Gray Daniels walks into her shop, Greta is immediately attracted to his rugged good looks and midnight blue eyes—until she learns he’s Stephanie Harwood’s fiancé. She’s furious to find they’ve tricked her into a publicity stunt aimed at garnering support for the mall. So now her little war has a new front: Gray Daniels. If only she could forget those striking blue eyes….
A knock on the door brings a return of old danger, and Greta must now put aside her anguish over the house to fight for her life. Will she succumb to the long-accustomed role of victim or can she overcome her paralyzing fear to emerge the resilient survivor she longs to be—and in the process learn if she’s finally free to love again?
