She could be The One

If he’ll let her in.

The rustic mountain town of Golden, Georgia, is the ideal place for crime scene investigator Deke Matthews to heal after a tragedy left him questioning everything. But there’s another reason he’s here, and moonlighting as an adventure guide provides the perfect cover. It doesn’t include falling for his boss. Attorney Grace Harper is back in Golden only long enough to save her family business. Just when Deke has found the woman to share his life with...

“I think something’s snagged my paddle.”
“What are you hung up on?”
“Can’t tell. Maybe if I stand—”
“No,” he shouted as she lifted herself from the seat and tugged on the paddle. The canoe dipped precariously, but she quickly sank back down, keeping them from tipping over.
“Nice save,” he said as the boat leveled out. He positioned his paddle to guide them to the ramp. Looking ahead to check the distance, he slowed. But Grace had risen again.
“Not yet. We aren’t—”
Too late, she tumbled over the side and into the water. Seconds later she surfaced, sputtering and holding the paddle over her head, just as Deke was ready to jump in after her.
“Wh-what happened?”
“You stood up.”
“I was trying to get the paddle loose.”
“Next time try to free it without standing up.”
“Next time? Oh, no, there will be no next time.” She fluttered about in the water as the canoe drifted and finally banked on shallow ground.
“Ew. Gross.” She shivered, making her way to shore. “It feels like my feet are wrapped up in old clothes.”
“It’s only leaves,” he said as he stepped from the canoe, pulling it on shore and then wading into the water. Grace stumbled toward him. Meeting where the water was waist high, he held out his hand, ready to assist her to dry land. When her hand was secure in his, she yanked back with all her strength, pulled his PFD with her other hand and dragged him into the water with her.
“What the—”
Hilarious laughter greeted him as he lost his footing and ended up floundering beside her. Righting himself, he wrapped an arm around her and they floated deeper into the cool, inviting waters.
“What was that for?” he asked.
“For convincing me to get into the canoe in the first place. I told you. I’m not outdoorsy.”
He tugged her closer. “Really? I think you protest too much.”
As they treaded water, their legs tangled, but Deke made no move to back away. Their body heat mingled and before he realized what had happened, she’d slipped her arms around his neck and brought her face close to his.
“My hero,” she whispered against his lips.
“I don’t think it constitutes being a hero when you were wily enough to drag me into the water.”
Her eyes grew serious. “Not this. Your job. What you do in order to protect others. That makes you a hero.”
“I don’t—”
She placed a finger over his lips to silence him, then leaned in and replaced it with her soft lips. His hands circled her waist, drawing her against his chest. She nearly took his breath away, not only with her words but how she kissed him as if he was the most important thing in her world. Because, if he were honest, he was beginning to feel like that about her.
