Braxton Monroe s taking a break from teaching to do some strenuous work on a Civil War era house, and feeling the strain in every rock-hard muscle. Good thing he has to interview massage therapists for the spa even if it s embarrassing to meet a job candidate in his boxers. Cora Buchanan has hands so talented and a voice so sultry he wants to hire her before he even lifts his head from the table. But he s shocked to meet her outside the massage room with her seeing-eye dog, Heidi the yellow lab.
Cora has left her family and fiance in Atlanta to make her way in this small town. All her parents money can t restore her sight, but it s up to her to restore her independence. Though she bristles at Braxton s protectiveness, she too feels lingering effects from their intimate touch. Now that he s her boss, it s strictly hands-off .Until a secret she s keeping destroys his fragile trust, and they must find the courage to knock down the walls between them.

In Bennetts lively second Monroes contemporary (after Wrapped in You), the family of adoptive siblings begins to realize their dream of opening a spa for women in Haven, Ga., in honor of their deceased sister, Chelsea. When Cora, the heiress to the Buchanan Chocolate empire, escapes her oppressive family and applies to be a masseuse at the spa, Braxton Monroe, whos helping run the place while taking a break from his job as a history professor, agrees to a trial massage and is astonished by her healing touch before realizing she cant see. Coras determination to prove her independence despite her recent blindness leads her to hide her wealth and status from her new community, and shes afraid to let anyone get too close to her; Braxton, still suffering from his former fiancées betrayal, cautions himself against romantic involvement with an employee. But the chemistry between them is undeniable, and neither has the ability to fight it for long. Bennett creates appealing, amiable lovers whose genuine affection for each other convincingly conflicts with their struggles to be true to their personal goals. A fun cast of supporting characters, including bickering brothers, a newly adopted teenager, helpful girlfriends, and a guide dog, add zest to this enjoyable romance. (Dec.)
