A preacher. A deacon. That was the kind of man nurse Charity Sims planned to marry. Which is why her lovesick behavior around Rick McKinley, the contractor building a family center for her church, so confused her. He refused to go to church, let alone lead one. So what if he was handsome and charming? They couldn' t be more different. Infuriating as Rick was, Charity' s mission was clear: Help him see the light of church. As a loner who depended only on himself, he' d be tough to reach. But Charity was determined, even though she knew she risked her own strongly built convictions– about the man who should have her heart.
