Marissa was a librarian looking to start her life over in her hometown of Hopeful, Ohio. She is a very likable character who had me laughing at moments when I least expected it. She's a little quirky, a lot independent, and looking to make a difference in the community.
Sexy lawman Connor used to date Marissa back when she was in high school, and would rather leave the past in the past. That is, until he has a run in with Marissa at the Founders' Day Parade. The temptation may be more than he can stand when his Mother and Grandmother make up their minds that they want to play matchmaker.
They are both in for a surprise as they get to know each other once again after ten years has passed by and they discover the temptation they once felt for each other has in reality never went away.
