Is she the answer to his dreams … or the person who will be forced to destroy them?
He’s a farmer, darn it, not a bookkeeper
When Stetson Miller inherits his father’s farm in Idaho, he’s too focused on crops and yields to pay attention to the financial side of things. The next thing he knows, he’s got a stack of unpaid bills, the bank is threatening to foreclose … and the auditor who’s come to examine his accounts is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.
But she’s a city girl, just like the last one who left him at the altar. He'll guard his heart – but he can't help wanting her.
She’s checking him out ... in more ways than one
Jennifer Kendall doesn’t mind a tough job, but the handsome Stetson is trouble of a different kind. When he isn’t making her mad, he’s filling her head with all sorts of forbidden fantasies.
The sparks between them fly even faster when the road washes out and Jennifer has to spend the night on the farm. But passion alone won’t pay the bills. Can Jennifer find a way for Stetson to save his farm?
And if she can’t, will he ever forgive her?
Accounting for Love is the first novel in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. This is the “sweet” version of the book, which means on a heat scale of 1 - 5, it is probably around a 1.5 or so. If you are interested in the “swexy” version (sweet + sexy), please check out the other listing for this book. Either way, enjoy!
A Whole Lot Going On
This is a quaint love story with a lot going on. It seems that Stetson is just getting over the loss of his father, and after paying his medical bills, he hasn't been able to make the balloon payment on the farm/ranch. So the bank sends an accountant to do his books. Stetson is not happy about the bank sending someone in because he is afraid he is going to lose his home. Jennifer is the accountant that the bank sends. Her boss is a total jerk and over the line, I thought HR should have been put on to him. He violated the banks privacy laws. Her ex-boyfriend should have gotten that pounding he deserved. The relationship between the brothers holds too many hurts and I don't know how the author will resolve that later on. Jennifer's job is to keep the loan going, so the bank doesn't lose money or possibly the principal by foreclosing. I don't know when they found time to fall in love? But they do. Also, why did the author name the hero after a hat? Although it is my favorite kind of hat. Actually look forward to the next one in the series. I hope I can keep up!
