Overview
Crystal Hughes is mad as hell

No one is going to tear down the farmland that's been in her family since the turn of the century certainly not multimillion dollar Welco Industries. And until Welco's president meets with her, Crystal will wage a fiery one-woman protest to prove it But when he finally appears, Douglas Wellington III is far from the elderly curmudgeon she expected...

Tall, lean, and fabulous, Douglas is in for a surprise of his own. Crystal's cafe au lait beauty takes his breath away. Still, if she had any sense, she'd realize his project will save the impoverished community. With battle lines drawn, Crystal issues Douglas a challenge: spend one week on the land he wants to destroy. He agrees, if only to be alone with her. But when nature takes over amid North Carolina's lush countryside, these two warriors just may discover what happens to even the best laid plans...

Hodges’s warm-hearted and entertaining romance balances the hero and heroine’s opposing perspectives as sparks fly. Feisty Crystal Hughes is determined to carry on her family’s farming legacy; they had the first African-American-owned farm in Duval, N.C., on land their ancestors worked as sharecroppers. When megacorp Welco tries repeatedly to buy Crystal’s land, she demands to meet with heartless CEO Douglas Wellington III and tell him to back off. It’s mutual lust at first sight, but Douglas also has family obligations: his father’s dying wish was for Welco to build a business park on Hughes’ land. Crystal and Douglas’s attraction leads to romance and a trusting truce—but Welco’s board won’t stand for that, and a longtime Wellington/Hughes feud soon comes to light. The story is a little predictable, but hot sex, some delightful humor, a dollop of mystery, and engaging characters make this a book readers will love. Agent: Sha-Shana Crichton, Crichton & Associates. (May 7)
