Katie McKnight loves her job. Not really. But Katie loves her dad and this job means everything to him. Which is why she's scouting for the perfect house to film a mini-series…and that house happens to be in Harmony, NC. Now if only Katie can convince the grouchy, disheveled but totally hunky owner his home is perfect for the next teen craze, she’ll be in business.

Bestselling author, Vance Kerner has lost his mind along with his loafers and the notes to his next novel, under dirty dishes in his kitchen. Since babysitting his brother’s three kids, Vance hasn’t found a moments peace. So when California Katie knocks on his door, Vance doesn’t stop to ask questions. He simply yanks her inside and puts her in charge.

Katie agrees to babysit, if Vance allows her film crew access to his property. Vance agrees to keep an open mind as long as he gets the peace he needs to write. 

But having Katie underfoot is anything but peaceful. And Vance is finding less and less time to write and more and more time to watch Katie weave a lovely spell on all the Kerners...especially him.


Can these two opposites find a common ground and the love they both deserve?

SSBB's Publisher's Weekly Review - Full Review Here

“Summers excels at detailing Katie and Vance’s immediate attraction and steamy flirtation, including dubbing each other “Pirate Man” and “California Cupcake.” Detailed interactions with their friends and family help to build them as fully realized characters."

4-Star Reviews from Danielle (Lush Book Reviews)

“I really enjoyed this story. Sweet Southern Bad Boy was cute, funny and everything I love in a romance novel...Summers has a special talent in bringing out the characters’ personalities that balanced each other out...Katie and Vance had chemistry, desire, and passion...I loved Sweet Southern Bad Boy and suggest everyone buy it!”

5-Star Review from Marie Brown (Marie's Tempting Reads)

“Fun, sexy, flirty, Sweet Southern Bad Boy will charm and delight you!...I fell in love with Katie and Vance. Their chemistry was off the charts HOT HOT HOT and the romance sizzled and crackled...like a nice lightening storm. I was SO impressed with this writing that I want to shout it out on the rooftops!”

5-Star Reviews from Becky Burciaga

“A wonderfully sweet and entertaining story filled with humor, passion, romance and A LOT of very quirky characters. The story starts off at a fast pace and rapidly hooks you for a truly fun ride loaded with Southern charm."
