Not for Sale (Black Ladder Book 1)
She won’t be the reason I don’t achieve my goal.
I thought the old lady in the house next door was a nightmare. Turns out the granddaughter who just inherited the home is worse. Isabella Holt is putting more than a wrench in my plan to knock the crumbling shack down and build a spectacular multimillion-dollar home in its place. Her refusal to sell to me from a foolish desire to live in that heap has pushed me to my limit. I want her renovation scheme to fail but she’s more capable than I expected. Even worse, she’s invading my thoughts with the way she wears both steel-toed boots and high heels like she was born to drive me mad. When my Alzheimer’s-ridden Pops compares Izzy to my angelic late mother, I know it’s time to get her off my street for good.
He won’t be the reason I can’t have my dream.
I don’t think it was intentional for Gran’s inheritance to be more of a nightmare than a blessing. I have to believe it was her way of helping me keep our family memories alive. Unfortunately, along with this dilapidated mess of a house, she left me the harassing next-door neighbour and new home developer, Owen McLeod. Not only do I have to live beside this broody, woman-hating control freak, I have to manage the way I’m drawn to find out why he acts this way. To make things worse, I need to decide if I want to borrow more money than I’ll ever be able to pay back to finish this renovation or if I should sell my soul to the devil across the fence.
This steamy enemies-to-lovers, happily ever after romance is the first in the four-book Black Ladder series. Find these, and other books by Eden Rayna on Amazon. Due to its content, it is intended for mature readers.
