Looking for inspiration
Sloane Russo's turned a decade of crazy jobs and whimsical travel into a career writing steamy novels set in exotic places. Trouble is, Sloane's flat broke now--and she can't channel sun-drenched beaches in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The only fast cash in town comes with some seriously distracting temptation: Gavin Carmichael, hot, handsome and oh-so-hard-headed.
Gavin isn't the impulsive Don Juan of Sloane's novels. He's raising his thirteen-year-old half-sister, and he's pretty sure he's supposed to act like he's never heard of fun. Sloane is way too sexy and irresponsible to be his idea of a good tutor for Bree, but the unpredictable anti-nanny may be irresistible as well. . .
Sloane is kinda whimsical and gypsy-like in her travels, but is forced, by financial circumstance, to accept a job as a nanny. Gavin is forced by tragic circumstance to stay put and become a family man. At first glance these two are polar opposite, but as they get to know one another, they are more alike than they think. But being with Gavin may mean the end of her writing career, not to mention being a full-time caretaker to a troubled teenager. For Gavin, being with Sloane is a risk and for his sister's sake, he is pretty risk averse.
I was completely engrossed by Stirring Up Trouble. I loved the way Gavin and Sloane came together, the slow build and complications. As always, the cast of characters in Pine Mountain are lovable and entertaining.
If you are looking for a fun, contemporary romance, Kincaid's series should definitely be in your TBR pile!
