 Two unsuspecting lovers stumble upon the blueprint for love . . .

Calliope Allbrook takes a job in lovely, sunny Adelaide, Australia, hoping to lose herself in her work as a balm for her broken heart. And if it weren’t for the handsome hunk renovating the house next door, Calli would never even have looked up from the garden she is designing for her latest client. But rugged Kellen Dee is just the cure the beautiful heiress needs. After all, he has no idea who she is, so he certainly won’t see her as a meal ticket. Then there’s the fact that Kell’s deliciously sexy—and incredibly good with his hands . . .

From the moment Kell takes her in his arms, he knows Calli is more than just a fling. Then the blue collar bachelor learns he’s not sharing his bed with just any woman, but the wealthy daughter of the man who could make Kell’s construction business a success—and Kell the kind of well-heeled man worthy of Calli’s love. But he’ll have to be careful his ambitions don’t trip up his heart . . .

Perfect ScentsShe was determined to put her broken heart and her ruined reputation among the wealthy elite behind her. Slowly, she was making her own way with her small, one woman landscaping business and the regal home garden she was re-creating would be a feather in her cap, plus it gave her a place to say for several weeks with the owners gone. With careful planning, she could be on her feet again and independent of the taint of being a little rich girl.

Calli never realized her life could soon be coming up roses when she had a run in with the guy next door, the very handsome, very ambitious and hardworking guy next door. Kell is trying to make a living, renovating homes and selling them to finance and expand his small cabinetry/construction business. Serious, determined and very single, no woman has been able to turn his head or make him settle down, until the sassy girl next door stood up to his attitude and peaked his interest.

BUT, there is always a “but,” Kell is a blue collar man who has no idea that the beautiful Calli was once the darling of the uppercrust, will it change his budding love for her? Will he see her as a way to grow his fledgling construction business and make him the man he thinks she deserves? Love doesn’t need a bank account, it needs trust and honesty…

PERFECT SCENTS is a short and sweet romance from Virginia Taylor that puts two people in Cupid’s sights who are both a little on the quiet side, one, bred to be reserved and to hide her painful past, the other, a man who wants no attachments until he has “made it” in the world. Kind of cute, with many endearing moments, some pretty steamy moments and more than one blossoming romance. A perfect romantic escape!

I received an ARC edition from Lyrical Shine in exchange for my honest review.
