Author: Sophia Sinclair

Title: Worth the Wait: A smart and steamy single mom romance (Small-Town Secrets Book 1) 


Small-town romance novelist Sophia Sinclair delivers the smart and steamy HEA!

Molly is a librarian and single mom who is so busy trying to take care of everyone else that she never gives men a chance.

She’s standing on a ladder reshelving books one day, her great legs contrasting with her prim little librarian’s dress, when a good-looking stranger walks in, takes one upward glance and is immediately captivated.

Molly is not as wowed by David. Sure, he’s sexy, but he’s also conceited and irritating. But despite her refusal to give him the time of day, he manages to become ever more entangled in her life.

When she lets her guard down, the passion that erupts between them tempts her into believing this arrogant man might bring her a second chance at love. But she’s worked so hard to carve out a good life for herself. Is it worth risking it all for a man she isn’t sure she can trust?
