Every love story is a unique work of art.
Kate Mitchell thought she knew what she wanted: to finish her art degree and break into photography on her own terms. Just when she thinks she has it all figured out, new insight into an iconic photograph by her artistic idol will lead her on a journey through the past.
A photograph. A painting. A love lost in time. One clue leads to another, and Kate learns that pieces of a stranger's past might leave marks on her own future, leading to a completely unexpected love.
Finding the story behind a single picture becomes Kate's obsession, but learning its secrets will challenge everything she thought she knew about life, love, and inspiration.
It’s everything but business as usual.
Emmie Elliot hadn’t expected to come back to Metlin, California. She definitely didn’t expect to stay. She returned to her childhood home with a mission: Sell the building that housed her grandmother’s book store and move on with her life.
But life doesn’t always go according to plan.
To reopen her grandmother’s book shop, Emmie will need a hook. She’ll need a strategy. She’ll need an… Ox?
Miles Oxford doesn’t have much interest in quiet bookstore owners. He’s a tattoo artist without a space to work, and the last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone after his last disaster of a relationship. Work and pleasure don’t mix for Ox, but since he doesn’t have any interest in the cute girl with the bold business proposal, he should be safe from any awkward complications, right?
She sells ink. He tattoos it. Unusual? Yes. But a book shop/tattoo studio might be the ticket for both Emmie and Ox to find success on their own terms. As long as they keep their attention focused on business.
Just on business.
