He thinks he’s too old for her. She’s too shy to tell him he’s wrong.
Giles Mealing was looking forward to ending his service as the mayor of Creede, Colorado—except the only other person on the ballot is a known thug. Having a suspected criminal as the mayor would be like holding a match to a town that’s already a powder keg. Giles reluctantly takes back up the campaign, assisted by his secretary. Continuing his association with the lovely Diane would definitely be the only bright spot to winning the election.
Diane Turley loves working in the mayor’s office and more specifically, with the mayor. Although she detects no romantic feelings from him, she longs for them. As a result, she hides her own attraction deep inside. She can’t imagine working for anyone else. So for completely selfish reasons, she organizes efforts toward his re-election, drawing unwanted attention from dangerous men seeking power.
It takes a desperate enemy to wake them up to what they could have together.
