Love By Design

She was trying to earn her way into his heart.
Guilt made him feel unworthy to be loved. 
Can they stop a suspicious realty company and discover that true love is a gift?


Rachel Pryce needs to prove she's more than a pretty face. When her company, Quality Housing, gets a grant to rebuild a community center, that's her opportunity to show what she can do. She can handle anything, except maybe the neighborhood liaison who will be acting as her assistant.

Burnt out think tank “phenom” Matthew Harris spends his time rebuilding the neighborhood that built him. When family businesses start moving out without notice, Matt is determined to find out why and Rachel is his ticket to uncover the truth.

Soon, both will discover there's more to the other than meets the eye. Caught between conflicting loyalties, the stakes are higher than either of them realized. Will they sacrifice it all for a chance at unconditional love?
