When art gallery manager Sheryl Hall goes to Charleston, South Carolina, to get world-famous sculptor Winton Pace to display his artwork in her gallery, she doesn’t expect him to fall in love with her. Even though she has written off love, will she reciprocate in this friends-to-more romance?
Time for Me is the prequel novella of USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Vacation Sweethearts series. We first met Sheryl Hall in Ask You Later (A Savannah Sweethearts Prequel) and Winton Pace in Draw You Near (Savannah Sweethearts Book 3).
She needs a personal favor…
Eight years ago, art gallery manager Sheryl Hall watched Abilene—the owner of the gallery she works in—break sculptor Winton Pace’s heart. Today, Abilene is happily married to someone else and has moved to England. Abilene still owns Simon’s Gallery, and that’s the sticking point. The gallery is not doing well and needs an infusion of publicity. The acquisition manager wants Sheryl to persuade Winton to display some of his art pieces in the gallery, in the hope of attracting high-end buyers. So off to Charleston Sheryl goes.
He needs a plus-one…
Winton Pace remembers Sheryl and considers her a friend. However, he does not want to have anything to do with that art gallery because his heart is still broken to the point that he hasn’t returned to Savannah, Georgia, since his ex-girlfriend married someone else. When Sheryl finds out Winton needs a plus-one to his sister’s wedding in just a few days, she offers to stand in for his “future girlfriend” to appease his mother, also known as the family matchmaker. In return, Winton would let Sheryl take home a few of his bronze pieces to display at Simon’s Gallery.
They need to break up…
When Winton picks up Sheryl Hall for his sister’s wedding that Saturday, he feels attracted to her on their first date. He tries to make more deals with Sheryl if she will accompany him to various business functions on his calendar. He doesn’t expect Sheryl to possibly say no to an exclusive exhibition at Simon’s Gallery. How far will Winton go to buy time with Sheryl until she falls in love with him?
