|| With her professional reputation in tatters?and her boss in jail?Sophie Kincaid has no choice but to move to small-town Revival, Illinois, until the dust settles, where her best friends have arranged a job and a house for her. For six months, she's pretty sure she can handle anything?even her new landlord and neighbor, Ryder Moore. A magnetic 6?4? deputy sheriff, Ryder?s good looks and habit of flirting with intent to seduce are an infuriating distraction?and, to Sophie's alarm, an undeniable temptation. Ryder knows Sophie's type?entitled city girl?and it?s not one of his favorites. Add in her snarky sass and her propensity for trouble and she?s not exactly his ideal tenant. But something about the curvy little blonde fires Ryder's imagination, not to mention his desire. Soon enough their verbal sparring seems like a prelude to something much more physical?and far more pleasurable. Is love right around the corner?or just right next door?
