Finn Sawyer hates everything about being back in Sawyers Bend. He walked away from his family years before, living off his wits and skills in the kitchen, refining his craft as he worked his way across Europe. Then the father who left him for dead is murdered, and the will offers Finn a chance at his dream. If he can live in Heartstone Manor with his siblings for five years, he'll end up with enough cash to set up his own restaurant.
Now Finn is back in Heartstone’s kitchens, the only place he ever felt at home.
Just one problem: Savannah Miles.
She’s bossy, annoyingly organized, and the only thing that keeps Heartstone Manor running. Oh, and she hates him. Good reason to keep his distance. But Finn can’t forget the way it felt to kiss her, to hold her in his arms. If she was forbidden then, now she's untouchable. When he looks at Savannah, all he wants to do is touch.
Wicked Heart is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It’s fifth in The Hearts of Sawyers Bend series, featuring the Sawyer family of Sawyers Bend.

Ivy Layne has had her nose stuck in a book since she first learned to decipher the English language. Sometime in her early teens, she stumbled across her first Romance, and the die was cast. Though she pretended to pay attention to her creative writing professors, she dreamed of writing steamy romance instead of literary fiction. These days, she’s neck deep in alpha heroes and the smart, sexy women who love them.
Married to her very own alpha hero (who rubs her back after a long day of typing, but also leaves his socks on the floor). Ivy lives in the mountains of North Carolina where she and her other half are having a blast raising two energetic boys. Aside from her family, Ivy’s greatest loves are coffee and chocolate, preferably together.
