Elena Montgomery, an elderly victim of fibromyalgia, has two main loves in her life: Brian, her attractive and hard-working son; and Jill Stevens, her caring friend and next door neighbor. When Brian and Jill meet for the first time, they have a chemistry that no one can deny.
Although Jill finds herself wanting to get closer to Brian, she believes she can’t. Being hurt in the past, she vows to remain single the rest of her life, thinking it’s better not to love than to love and get burned. Brian, on the other hand, wants to get to the bottom of her fears and show her that not all men are the same. He is determined to win her trust, her heart and her hand in marriage.
Through pain, passion and pursuit, will Brian be able to prove to Jill what true love is all about?
Brian’s thoughts started to race, and he longed to touch every inch of her. He wanted to know what it would be like to cup her face, kiss her lips and brush through her hair with his fingers. Images of him holding her, grazing over her curves and feeling her soft, smooth skin entranced him.
Jill interrupted his pondering when she tried to hand him the peanut butter.
Noting the name brand, Brian chirped, “Oooh, the best!”
“Of course! I never skimp on my peanut butter.”
