An Eaton too hot to deny
The Kentucky clinic where Dr. Levi Eaton is volunteering is worlds away from his wealthy Pennsylvania roots. Still, the South has plenty of attractions-like his colleague's captivating sister. Angela Chase is sexy, charming and looking for fun, not commitment. That combination suits Levi just fine, until he begins to appreciate what lies beneath her Southern belle facade.
Her fiancé's betrayal destroyed Angela's faith in men-and inspired a double life that would shock her prominent family. Hiding her true self from a man as charismatic as Levi isn't so easy, and for once, she isn't sure she wants to try. But without the courage to trust him with her secrets, their sultry Southern nights may soon be just a haunting memory....

Alers gives her main characters time to grow with each other as opposed to falling headfirst into a physical relationship, by far the best part of the book. RT Book Reviews on Sweet Destiny (4 stars)
