Sweetly Scandalous – Jacqueline Winters

Romance novel enthusiast Allie Jordan has a closet secretly stacked full of steamy bodice-rippers and a past relationship gone wrong.

Her vicious ex, Travis, demeaned her love of her favorite books, leaving Allie to seriously doubt the existence of happily ever after’s beyond their fictional pages. One unfortunate night, Allie falls victim to his rage. Years later, with Travis behind bars, the scars he’s left behind have caused Allie to recede. Only through her anonymous—but quite popular—blog does Allie share her excitement of sexy heroes and stubborn heroines.

When Doctor Nick Bryant arrives in Willow Creek looking like he might’ve jumped right from the pages of one of Allie’s beloved books, her resolve to leave her hometown begins to waiver. With Nick harboring secrets of his own and Travis nearing parole eligibility, will Allie take a chance on her own happily ever after or will her past prove that not all scars heal?
