Ember had devoted her life to building love for others. She never counted on Booker knocking her over.

Constructing Love is the first reality show to combine home improvement with romance. Ember Woodhouse can’t wait to cast her matchmaking magic while charming America as she designs the interior of an abandoned autumn resort. Harriet Smith is an adorable country bumpkin in desperate need of Ember’s help to win the entire show. Everything goes perfectly to plan…until Ember finds herself partnered with the infuriating deadweight that is Mr. Knightley.

Booker Knightley is exhausted with the show, with the producers, with life and particularly with his partner. He thought his construction background would make winning this easy. No one told him he was also expected to woo a woman who drives him mad. Miss Woodhouse is flighty and stubborn, ignoring reality in favor of her delusions of romance. He couldn’t care less about love, much less the impossibility of finding it while cameras document his every breath. Booker has his own reasons for being on this show, reasons that are in jeopardy thanks to Miss Woodhouse and the scheming producers.

As the autumn leaves fall and the days grow shorter, Booker and Ember have a choice to make. If Booker doesn’t learn to work with her, he’ll lose his last opportunity to bring justice to his family. If Ember can’t figure out how to agree with him, her fledgling design business will crash before it takes wing. One thing is certain—Miss Woodhouse will never, ever care for Mr. Knightley.


Reader advisory: This book contains mention of injury, a car accident, and implied sexual assault.

Ellen Mint

Ellen Mint adores the adorkable heroes who charm with their shy smiles and heroines that pack a punch. She has a needy black lab named after Granny Weatherwax from Discworld. Sadly, her dog is more of a Magrat.

When she’s not writing imposing incubi or saucy aliens, she does silly things like make a tiny library full of her books. Her background is in genetics and she married a food scientist so the two of them nerd out over things like gut bacteria. She also loves gaming, particularly some of the bigger RPG titles. If you want to get her talking for hours, just bring up Dragon Age.

You can find Ellen at her website here and also on Bookbub..
