and bestselling author Karen Hawkins pens a delightfully sexy tale of modern love in a small Southern town. Newly divorced Roxie Treymayne is dying to find out. After years of being the perfect Southern lady, all she ended up with was a cheating husband. So she goes bombshell blond, gets a provocatively placed tattoo, and prepares to live it up as a Bad Girl. But then her mother falls ill...­and Roxie is forced to return to Glory, North Carolina. Once the town bad boy, Nick Sheppard is now Glory's highly respected sheriff.

Can they get it right? Or will they just end . . .
