Southern charm never looked so fine.
Just Kiss Me
by Rachel Gibson
Genre- Contemporary Romance
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns with this dazzling love story filled with sizzle, sass, and just a bit of southern charm . . .
“Hello, Ms. Vivian . . . it’s been a long time.”
And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It’s been years since she last saw Harrison Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living. He was the gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.
Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry.
She got what she wanted—and more—but why does her glamorous life seem so trivial?
Harrison got out too . . . making it all the way to Wall Street, until a heart attack forced him to trade in his cufflinks for a good set of hand tools.
Making furniture soothes his soul, but escaping the Whitley-Shuler heritage is nearly impossible. And now he’s come face-to-face with the one who got away. He’s not looking for love. He’s not even looking for sex . . . so why is resisting her the hardest thing he’s ever done?

About the Author:
With the publication of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Gibson’s first book, readers discovered one of contemporary romance’s freshest voices. Four of her novels were named among the Top Ten Favorite Books of the Year by Romance Writers of America.
Rachel’s storytelling career began at the age of sixteen when she ran her Chevy Vega into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper and broken glass from the ground, and drove to her high school parking lot. With the help of her friend, she strategically scattered the broken pieces and told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit and run. They believed her, and she’s been telling stories ever since.
When not writing, you can usually find Rachel hunting for the perfect shoes, or on the tennis court where she is a solid 2.5. Someday she hopes to hit the ball half as many times as she swings and misses.
This story is filled with Rachel Gibson’s trademark southern charm and witty banter.
Vivian Leigh Rochet is a heroine we can all relate to. She came from a single parent family, was slightly overweight, and full of an attitude that often got her into trouble with the Whitley-Shuler family, landed gentry, and her mother’s boss.
She keeps a diary in which she states her fondest dream of striking it rich and giving the big so there to everyone who thinks she’ll never make anything of her life.
Many years later we find that Vivian has accomplished her dream, but the sudden loss of her mother sends the young movie star into a tailspin. She returns home for the funeral and runs into the Whitley-Shuler’s eldest son, Henry. He’s grown into a man she can’t stop thinking about.
He helps with the funeral arrangements along with his mother, the once-hated Mantis. Vivian and Henry start seeing one another and fall in love, but all is not as it seems.
Secrets are spilled, and hearts are broken.
Can Vivian and Henry overcome their past to face a future together?
