When opposites attract, fish out of water, and big city/small town legal shenanigans aren’t enough of a challenge—just add a pandemic!
Lawyer Emily Holcomb is up for partner just as she’s appearing on a blockbuster reality TV cooking show. Extroverted Emily only has to wrap up a mammoth real estate deal in tiny Black Duck, West Virginia, and her dream career will be secured.
But Liam Thomas, the reluctant mayor of Black Duck, is determined to see Emily fail. The calm, reserved mountain man has a town to protect from invading corporate interests.
Emily is a fish out of water in small town Black Duck. Liam is equally at odds with life in big city Washington, DC. But opposites attract—and this attraction burns hotter than Emily and Liam’s arguments over who should own the town.
How can these star-crossed lovers remain true to themselves and the people who depend on them when they can’t even agree on what to eat for dinner?
If you fell hard for the feel-good rom-coms of Lucy Score, Pippa Grant, and Emily Henry, then settle in for a wild ride, because The B Word is the perfect romantic comedy escape for you!
USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky learned to read when her parents shoved a book in her hands and told her she could travel anywhere through stories. As a writer, Mindy has traveled through various genres, including cozy paranormal, hot contemporary romance, and traditional fantasy. In her spare time, Mindy knits, quilts, and tries to tame her to-be-read shelf.
USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky learned to read when her parents shoved a book in her hands and told her she could travel anywhere in the world through stories. She never forgot that advice.
Mindy’s travels took her through multiple careers. After graduating from Princeton University, Mindy considered becoming a professional stage manager or a rabbi. Ultimately, she settled on being a lawyer, working as a litigator at a large Washington firm. When she realized that lawyering kept her from writing (and dating and sleeping and otherwise living a normal life), Mindy became a librarian, managing large law firm libraries. Mindy now writes full time.
For years, Mindy’s dating life was a travel extravaganza as well. She balanced twenty-eight first dates in one year, selecting eligible gentlemen from sources as varied as Washingtonian magazine ads, Single Volunteers of D.C., and supposedly-certain recommendations from best friends. Ultimately, she swore off the dating scene entirely. After two years of carefully-enforced datelessness, she made one last foray onto Match.com, where she met her husband on her first match.
Mindy’s travels have also taken her through various literary genres. In addition to her cozy paranormal romances and category romances, Mindy has written traditional fantasy novels (including the award-winning, bestselling The Glasswrights’ Apprentice), short stories, and nonfiction essays. Mindy has been awarded the Career Achievement Award and the Nancy Richards-Akers Mentoring Award by the Washington Romance Writers. She has written more than forty books.
In her spare time, Mindy quilts, knits, and tries to tame her endless to-be-read shelf. Her husband and cats do their best to fill the left-over minutes.
