Ryder Copeland is an accomplished architect...not to mention tall and sexy. He's everything a hero should be, and Lord knows Maisy Kelly has read enough of her great-aunt Eloise's romance novels to recognize one when she sees one. But like all fairy tales, Maisy can't help but wonder if this Prince Charming is too good to be true. Ryder is drawn to the shy, curly-haired professor who hires him to convert the Victorian house she's inherited into a bookstore. Attracted to a woman for the first time since his divorce, Ryder finds himself wishing for a future with Maisy that he knows is impossible. And the closer he gets to her, the harder it's going to be to walk away.
