The hero falls in love with a house he recently saw on the brochure and while the tour through the outside and inside goes well with the heroine who's the current owner but has no means to keep it. It goes well until she learns from him that he'll be bringing music artists here to record and such and the heroine worries that they'll destroy centuries of family gardening to turn it into a parking lot and a guitar shaped swimming pool. She refuses to sell to the hero but he's very professional about the whole thing. He leaves her a CD for her part time housekeeper's favorite band and a tidbit of information that he's single. Then the house is sold to the hero who brings in the heroine for help in both updating and restoring the home. I liked the hero because the dog and the housekeeper can see that he's a nice guy who's honest and keeps his word. He also pursues the heroine because he's attracted to everything about her. What I liked is the two of them developing a relationship before it hits the bedroom. They have ups and downs and don't realize till later on that they are in fact in love with each other but their past bad experiences from lovers and wives made them put up a wall that has been crumbling since they met each other. When the heroine realizes this and overhears the hero state to his family that she's just a friend, she distances herself from him. This hurts the hero but he's encouraged by the housekeeper whose advice is sensible and hilarious. It doesn't work the first time but he doesn't give up and really pulls out all the stops for her. The confession of love from the hero was incredibly sweet and the heroine accepts his proposal with a smile. The ending ends with them and their kids and the dog all smiling.
