About the Book

Josephine ‘Jojo’ Best has it all figured out. Just seventeen, she’s been to college, she has her own hairdressing shop and nothing will distract her from her goals. That is, until handsome George Brooks begins to pursue her. Then the return of her childhood nemesis complicates her life even further!

No girl is immune to Adam Morgan’s charm. But when a wound brings him home from the War Between the States, it’s a girl he used to call “Pest” who’s turning the tables. All grown up, Jojo is being courted by another soldier, and Adam knows it would be foolish to play with her heart; but he just can’t get the ugly duckling turned swan off his mind.

Jojo, too, can’t deny her growing feelings for Adam. But he’s always been such a flirt—how can she take him seriously? He can’t possibly be serious about her. Besides, she has George falling all over himself to please her. As the war rages on, Adam’s feelings for Jojo grow stronger, but Jojo’s determination to resist him does, too. One thing is clear, though: Jojo is a girl who always gets what she wants, even when she doesn’t know what it is!
