kitt-and-kisses Finding Mr. Right series, Book 1

Kit Saunders is a public relations expert and never turns down a challenge. She never gets involved with clients. But Greyson Corey is both challenging and too hunky for words. Is he as down-to-earth and honest as he seems? Change is difficult for him but Kit is resilient enough to present the facts in a way that nudges him in the right direction. Yet when he turns in her direction and chemistry seems to take over, she stops short and takes a deep breath.

Kit was fooled by a con man who stole her financial well being…but more importantly her sense of trust. Although it’s easy for others to put trust in her—in business, in the volunteer program she started to bring pets together with sick children—her sense of trust in men has been destroyed. She is so attracted to Grey she can hardly see straight. And his first kiss could lead to passion she has only dreamed of. But her barriers are high and strong and the con man lurks in her background. When Grey has commitments that he won’t explain, Kit’s radar senses trouble. She won’t fall in love with a man with secrets.

Grey has his own walls to climb. His sister has special needs. Although she is now living in a group home, he is responsible for her. He loves Deedee and will protect her until his dying day. A previous relationship ended because the woman he dated couldn’t accept Deedee’s role in his life. How can he trust that Kit will be any different?
Two people search for the meaning of love in a real world. Can a few mind-boggling kisses lead to happily-ever-after? Only if they can trust as well as love.
