on 1 reviews
Dr. Jane Ann (Jennie) Truelove, sex therapist, romance writer and closet virgin, couldn’t resist her friend’s dare to wade in the Mississippi River. Now stuck in river muck and sliding downstream fast, Jennie desperately appeals for help. God always liked to fish and laughed when She sent Pete “the MAX” Maxwell, Super Bowl hero turned opera star, to save Jennie from the clutches of the Big Muddy. More
Dr Jane Ann “Jennie” Truelove, Professor of Human Relationships Studies, was hot, tired and stuck in limbo while waiting for a ferryboat ride across the Mississippi River. With a mischievous grin, her best friend, Sara Beth, dared Jennie to stick her foot in the water of the Big Muddy. In fact, she double dared her! Sara Beth was bored, too, and knew Jennie couldn’t resist the challenge.
Jennie quickly realized she was in big trouble when she sank knee deep in muck and mud and felt the river’s strong current pushing against her unsteady footing. Clearly, she was on an unexpected downriver slide and needed to get on dry land fast. But much to her chagrin, even God didn’t seem sympathetic to her frantic appeals for help!
Super Bowl hero, Pete “The MAX” Maxwell couldn’t believe his eyes as he watched the beautiful woman walk down the landing ramp and into the river, but he didn’t hesitate to spring into action and save her. When he finally had the red-headed mermaid safely in his arms, he gave her a lecture about rivers and current and water and stinking mud. And then, because it seemed to Pete that a man should get some reward for all of his trouble and because he couldn’t resist her luscious lips, he kissed Jennie. She seemed to like it, so he did what any red-blooded male would do. He kissed her again!
But surprisingly passionate kisses that leave a lingering and wishful taste of what could be, and a big dose of independent female resistance, put Pete and Jennie on a collision course when they unexpectedly end up living next door to each other in the college town of Warrensburg, Missouri. Pete thinks he’s a “Done Duck” and Jennie thinks Pete is weird. Sara Beth thinks they’re perfect for each other. But they’ll have to write their own textbook of love and commitment before Jennie admits that Pete is the man she wants to be the “Guardian of my Heart.”
