More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer
Plot Summary: After being railroaded by the city council, Abby needs a man’s name on her bakery’s deed, and a man she can control—not the stoic lumberman Zacharias, who always seems to exude silent confidence. She can’t even control her pulse when she’s around him. But as trust grows between them, she finds she wants more than his rescue. She wants his heart.
