Wanda Jane Coblentz is running for her life. She got in with a seedy guy and now the people after him are after her. She buys a bus ticket and head's to Last Chance, South Carolina. The first night she meets Clay Rhodes. After spending the night together, he decides that she is not what he needs. His mother, however, hires Jane to work as a manicurist in her shop and gives her a place to live over the shop. Clay and Jane keep running into each other and they can't deny there is a spark there. Then Jane and Clay's niece Haley are kidnapped after his mother Ruby is injured by the bad guys. Jane thinks that Clay will only think badly of her since his mother was hurt because of her and his niece was kidnapped. Jane kept Haley safe but she sees herself as not being loveable.
This is the first book I have read by this author. It was a pleasant read with lots of charming minor characters. The story was a good one and very believeable and showed how much Jane changed from the beginning to the end. Also Clay went through some changes too. The main characters although they did not think they were good for each other made a perfect pair. Could not help rooting for them through the book and I think that's what kept me turning the pages. Really liked the cover that it showed a typical small southern town. Very appropriate to the storyline in every way. This is one book that I think I will read over again to see what I missed the first time.
