Summary: For Autumn Maddox, the one guy who couldn’t possibly be right for her turns out to be the one who’s perfect.
Tired of living under the shadow of her mother’s bad choices, Autumn left home the first chance she got. But when her carefully constructed life crumbles around her, she’s forced to return to the small southern town that never let her forget she came from the wrong side of the tracks.
Jude Southerland, the town doctor, has a pedigree that has the Ladies Auxiliary reaching for their fans. He’s easily the town’s most eligible bachelor – a status he has no intention of changing. That is until he almost runs down the Maddox girl he never noticed in school and suddenly finds her lush curves, dark curls and blue eyes consuming his thoughts, day and night.
Jude knows Autumn is his perfect match. But he’s so busy dodging the local matrons’ attempts to marry him off to their daughters, how is he supposed to find time to make her believe him?
