Bartender Mick Atwell has one more commitment before he leaves Magnolia Bay for Colorado: help his best friend, Tim, get his new wine bar POUR ready in time for its Valentine’s Day grand opening. But when Tim’s little sister Lucy breezes into town unexpectedly from New York for a visit, Mick doesn’t see how they’ll keep to their tight schedule—any more than he sees how this beautiful, spirited woman could possibly be the same irresponsible “kid” Tim has been complaining about for years… 

Despite her carefree smile, Lucy Waverly hasn’t come back to Magnolia Bay for a vacation—she’s come home to hide. After discovering her boss at the gallery is selling forgeries, she needs to lay low and figure out a plan to get herself out of this dangerous mess—a plan which can’t include falling for her brother’s sexy best friend, no matter how safe he makes her feel, or how his smoldering eyes turn her inside out. 

Mick has one foot out the door, but when Lucy's troubles follow her to Magnolia Bay, they are thrust together to keep one step ahead of danger and get POUR open in time. Soon the man who lives by his plans is wondering if the woman who lives by chance may not be worth breaking his rules for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I love the town of Magnolia Bay. So excited that we get a story of Mick, who we met in a Very Married Christmas as the bartender. Mick is helping his good friend, Tim opening a wine bar when Tim's sister shows up. Lucy has come to Magnolia Bay to hide out from her boss. Lucy helps Mick getting the bar ready for the big opening. There is an immediate attraction between them. Mick is not looking for a relationship, plus this is his best friend's sister. Loved how their relationship grew. This is packed full short story, but really enjoyed the characters. My favorite part was the wine tasting. I highly recommend for a sweet Valentines Day read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stealing Hearts Erika Marks takes us back to Magnolia Bay, a small town filled with interesting characters in Stealing Hearts. Tim and Mick are in a race against time to get their wine bar POUR open in time for their grand opening Valentine's Day party. When Tim's younger sister Lucy shows up out of the blue for a 'vacation' and Tim is away on business, things really heat up in Magnolia Bay. Lucy has more going on than anyone would think...but determined not to interfere with the opening of POUR, Lucy keeps her secrets. With Tim stuck out of town, she digs into help Mick in whatever way she can. Mick has no intention of staying in Magnolia Bay. His plan is to leave as soon as Tim has POUR opened. Tragedy in his past has kept him closed off with no ties or commitments, and no desire for either. He didn't count on the attraction he feels towards his good friends sister. He's determined to ignore it, but Lucy is just as determined to make Mick see her as more than Tim's little sister. As things heat up between them, the danger Lucy is running from is catching up to her. As the relationship between Mick and Lucy deepens, so does the danger...Will Lucy be safe? Will two people both running from something be able to stop long enough to see what's right in front of them and give it a chance, or will it be time for both of them to move on? Stealing Hearts is a fast paced and the story is the perfect length. I was never bored, but eager to see what would happen next not only between Lucy and Mick, but everything else about them. Lucy is sassy, determined, and she doesn't get enough credit for all she is! I like how she keeps going and trying. Mick stole my heart even if he does try to stay remote. Erika drew me in with these likable, believable characters. I liked the blend of real life problems, relationships, romance and suspense in Stealing Hearts. These kept things lively and help my interest. Lucy and Mick are the main characters, but Lucy's brother Tim is a strong secondary character and I liked how the three of them interacted. You could feel a connection between them all and nothing was overly dramatic which I really liked! I really like the setting of Stealing Hearts, and if you haven't read any other Magnolia Bay books Stealing Hearts can easily be read as a stand alone. I'd recommend Stealing Hearts to romance readers who like the thrill of romance and some suspense in a small town setting.
