Awl’s well that ends well?
On the eve of her acceptance of the Torchbearer Award, an industry honor for the romance writer who best represents the genre, Khela Halliday reveals the deepest, darkest secret of her heart—that she doesn’t believe in love. Not at first sight, second glance, everlasting or springing eternal. But love just might be in Khela’s future when handsome handyman Carter Radcliffe helps her save face during the award’s weekend ceremonies. Alluring, intelligent and delightfully wacky, Khela interests Carter more than he’d like. Women typically wanted only one thing from him, and rarely was it the one thing he wanted to give. Through Khela’s books, Carter finds the tools to unlock her impenetrable heart, all the while wondering if he can raze his own defenses to let her into his.
Mr. Fix-It is a riveting tale of a hot handyman who loosens the screws of an uptight romance novelist who doesn’t believe in love.
