by Patricia Rice
New York Times bestseller Patricia Rice brings you “Hours of reading delight.” —Romantic Times Reviews
A ditzy dreamer with a well-hidden practical streak, Maya Alyssum has an impossible dream of opening a school where kids can find unconditional acceptance–acceptance she and her sister had never experienced while growing up in foster homes.
But Axell Holm, the town council’s representative, holds Maya’s unconventional dream in his hands.
Axell is the kind of uptight authority figure Maya loves to hate. So how is it that he’s ringing all her chimes, even as her rebellious plans turn his ordered life upside down?
