She was exactly the kind of woman
he knew he shouldn’t want…

“You want to kiss me?”

He should say no…

After moving his lab to northern Maine, billionaire inventor Farrell Stone needs a live-in housekeeper. Single mother Ivy Danby needs a job to support her baby daughter. Both problems solved. Except Ivy fascinates Farrell, more than any temporary employee should. Widowed Farrell doesn’t do relationships, but would one sizzling night with Ivy be a huge mistake…or the fresh start they both need?


Love when they least expect it! With book two in her Men of Stone River series Janice Maynard continues to delight with Farrell’s story. This trio of brothers are a joy to interact with and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us with Zachary’s story coming up next.

Farrell is dreamy. He’s smart, rich and treasured the love he found early in life. As he relocates his lab to his off the beaten path home in Northern Maine, he agrees to let his assistant Katie send a live-in housekeeper to keep him fed and taken care of when he’s buried in his creative fog. He just never expects to start falling for her and her adorable daughter.

Ivy is quick to nab a reader’s heart. We can tell from the start that her past isn’t pleasant and we feel protective of her quickly. Luckily Farrell does too and doesn’t disappoint in the way he grows to treasure her.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves watching a trio of close brothers find their happily ever afters one at a time. These guys are down to earth, fun and kind-hearted.
