Summer Jones only wants three things in life:
1. Keep her house plants alive.
2. Open a beautiful bed-and-breakfast.
3. Never see or speak to Beckett Valentine again.
None of those things are currently possible.
Summer Jones and Beckett Valentine are rivals and have never wanted the same things in life except for the newly for sale Horseshoe Creek Ranch. Summer thought her dreams of building a B&B would finally come true until her number one enemy decides he wants the land, too. Beckett plays dirty and refuses to give her what she wants—a common theme in their relationship—and the dream of acquiring the property turns into a living nightmare.
They might’ve been at each other’s throats since they were teens, but the stakes have never been so high. And right now, she’s more determined than ever to take down her best friend’s older brother—cowboy boots and all.
**Bless Your Heart is a small town, enemies to lovers, best friend’s older brother, contemporary southern romance with a guaranteed happily ever after. Each book in the Valentine Texas series is a stand-alone. Warning: this book contains tons of Southern sass, sarcasm, and lots of spice! Fade to black is not included.**
Bless Your Heart will be released in audio at a later date.
This book will also be published in German, French, and Italian!
