Calia Read presents her latest novel. Contains mature themes.
The year is 1919, and the Great War has ended. As everyone picks up the pieces of their lives, I have only copious amounts of alcohol and women keeping me together.
Most of the men I went to war with didn't make it home, including my best friend, Miles. I thought I knew everything about him until I discovered he made me the executor to his little sister Rainey's dowry.
Rainey Pleasonton is anything but pleasant. Most men in Charleston found her wild and carefree ways to be terrifying, which explained why she was twenty-eight and still unmarried.
I have sixty days to help her find a husband before she loses her inheritance, her family's legacy, and I lose the last of my sanity.
The only problem is, I've watched her go from a little girl who chased us around with a bow and arrow to the only woman in the South immune to my charm. And the men who were once scared of Rainey? They now find my le savauge beguiling, and I do not care for it one bit . . .
Contains mature themes.
