Beneath Southern Skies

A little southern comfort goes a long way... A career-destroying move sends infamously notorious New York gossip columnist, Vanessa Valentino, running back home to Mercy, Georgia, to lick her wounds in private and as her true self - Tressie Valentine. But it doesn't take long for the roving reporter, intent on salvaging what's left of her career, to pick up the scent of a brewing local story with the potential to catch fire nationwide. Too bad the only thing standing in the way of her being the first to break the story just happens to be her archenemy - Nathaniel Woodberry. That and, of course, the fact that seeing Nate again is enough to make her melt from something other than the steamy Georgia heat. * Nate can't believe that Tressie's back to wreak havoc on the small town they both grew up in, and he can't help holding a grudge against her for past deeds. He also can't believe the sudden heat between them. He finds himself drawn to her, spending too much time thinking about seducing her, and plotting when and where to make his move. When he finally does, will he still be able to accomplish his goal - stopping Tressie from destroying their hometown - before its too late?

But healing can only begin when the truth comes out and ghosts from the past are exorcised.
