Mala Koleski's brother might have married a real-life princess, but her own luck in the Prince charming department was zilch. Then an old high school crush by name of Eddie King returns to her hometown of Spruce Lake, Michigan, oozing even more bad-boy Southern charm than he had twenty years before. . .and even more determination not to set down roots. As their long-put-off attraction finally comes to a boil, however, Mala wonders if having a fling is enough to salvage her sagging self- confidence. . .or whether she dare put her size 18 butt on the line for the obviously hurting man.

And when Eddie finds himself living in Mala's upstairs apartment, can he turn his back on on a pair of kids whose father abandoned them as Eddie's did him, not to mention their got-more-love-than-she-knows-what-to-do-with mother. . .or will he finally face his own fears in order to do WHAT A MAN'S GOTTA DO?

Additional Information

Take one high school crush by name of Mala Koleski, add twenty years, two kids and the softest curves north of the Mason-Dixon line, and you've got the perfect recipe for the kind of temptation that itinerant chef, don't-need-no- stinking-family Eddie King does NOT need. But when those three sets of eyes get to working on him. . .well, it looks like this rebel might have just found his cause.
