Terry Ledger, a wealthy West Texas developer and builder of high-end homes, isn’t looking for romance. He has a goal to construct an exclusive development for senior citizens. He has searched for years for the right location, but never expected to find it on an eBay auction. Now he has paid a million dollars to win the tiny town of Agua Dulce, Texas and he’s ready to start building his dream.

But not if Marisa Rutherford has anything to say about it. The ostensible town mayor, manager of the only cafe, flea market and tourist trap and caretaker of her dying mother, never expected to have to protect the town’s odd population, as well as her heart, from an outsider like Terry and his plans. But she will fight to the end to keep Agua Dulce from becoming just another stop on a wealthy developer’s path to riches.

As Terry and Marisa battle it out, romance takes root between them. Can Marisa reconcile her heartfelt feeling for Terry with the loyalty she feels for the town’s citizens? Can Terry’s love for her make him understand her need to protect them, even from him?
