Welcome to the new world from USA Today bestselling author Alexa Aston---Sugar Springs---a small town in East Texas where love has a way of turning up when you least expect it!
A chef digging her way out of debt. A doctor making a huge career move. Two dedicated professionals who think they are too busy for love . . . .
Viviana Romano leaves her small East Texas town after high school graduation and lives with relatives in Tuscany for three years, learning to cook the food of her ancestors. When she comes home from her years abroad, she lands a job at a steakhouse in Dallas, falling for a moody chef who winds up sinking Vivi into massive debt. Four years later---and finally debt-free---Vivi returns to her hometown and takes over Romano's, her parents' pizza parlor, with ambitious plans for the restaurant.
As a boy, emergency room physician Ford Carpenter spent summers in Sugar Springs with his aunt and uncle, who were childless and always treated Ford as if he were their son. Facing burnout from eighteen-hours days managing a busy Houston ER, he agrees to go into practice with his uncle, eager to practice a different kind of medicine.
While reclaiming his life and settling into Sugar Springs and a slower pace of life, Ford begins a romance with a reluctant Vivi, who is drawn to the handsome doctor and yet hesitant to commit to a relationship after being burned in the past.
Will Vivi be able to risk her heart and find a future with Ford---or will the demons of her past doom their relationship from the start?
