Peaches in Winter

Author(s): Alice Roelke

Betty wanted nothing more than to be a secretary, to forget the past and a fiancé who jilted her.  But sexual harassment from her boss left her jobless, struggling to survive in the big city.  A new job with grumpy author Jake Watterson is the second chance she needs.

Unfortunately, she starts out on the wrong foot: talking too much and bringing the police round by her ignorance of city life.  But all the same, he accepts her, and she can’t help liking him.  He’s smart, handsome, and such a kind man underneath that gruff exterior.  He talks to her like she’s a real person, not just a pretty face.

Warmth and attraction grow between the two main characters in this ‘sweet’ or ‘traditional’ romance set in the 1950s.  Betty and Jake both have wounds on their hearts, but somehow, being near each other thaws the winter in their lives and heals their pain.

Betty is convinced that Jake could never look at her as anything but a secretary—and not even a very good one.  Jake’s certain he’s too damaged and could never be good enough for the sweet and beautiful farm girl who’s entered his world, talking about life on the peach farm and baking him the most delicious things. But he’s falling hard for her.

Jake’s friend and publisher gets into the mix when he sees how beautiful Betty is and decides to start flirting with her, to Betty’s shy consternation and Jake’s jealous irritation.

Then Betty’s fiancé who jilted her shows up on her doorstep, hat in hand…
