A Model of Perfection by Pamela Gibson
Model Victoria Larkin knows she was a brat growing up. But when an ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal an embarrassing secret, she flees to St. Helena, hoping her big sister will forgive her past behavior and let her stay until she figures out what to do.
Matt Simmons—vintage car mechanic, grape grower, and owner of a flock of sheep known as the wooly weeders—doesn’t believe in love at first sight. But when he sees Victoria wiping alpaca spit off her shoes he’s smitten. And when she asks for his help, he’s hooked.
But Victoria’s dilemma seems to have no solution. When a showdown with the ex nears, Matt might have to don his superhero cape to keep Victoria from being crushed like a bin of St. Helena grapes before they can discover if their mutual attraction will be a perfect pairing.
