(The Blackstone Family, Book 1)
Kalina & Bryson
Setting: Wilmington, North Carolina
Kalina Cooper has been hiding her loneliness and personal problems by drowning herself in work – continuing her duties on until the late evenings at her Aunt Edith’s café. Her happily ever after never has or never will involve a husband. As a teen, she watched her father walk out on her sick mother, and now, she doesn’t believe true love exists.
After a bad divorce from a cheating woman, Bryson Blackstone vows to never marry again. But he never expected to cross paths with a woman like Kalina Cooper. She's different. From what he has learned about her, he knows she doesn't believe in love but he doesn't know why. Now he plans to weasel his way into her life to find out because Kalina is just the woman he'd consider if he was crazy enough to fall in love again.
