They say there’s no such thing as perfect.
But I’ve built my life to perfection—the perfect boyfriend, the perfect apartment, the perfect career planning celebrity weddings. My job—my only job—is to make sure every event is absolutely and completely perfect.
What’s not perfect? Kash Bennet.
And I wish I didn’t find that so appealing.
I could have told you every perfectly imperfect thing about the gardener at Longbourne. Like his hair, lush and black and far too long. Or his nose, the flat bridge of a Greek god, bent a little like it’s been broken. Or his size. Beastly. Roped and corded with muscles, gleaming with sweat and peppered with dirt.
There’s no escaping him, not if I’m going to use his family’s flower shop for my events.
But nothing is what it seems. And in the span of a heartbeat, my perfect life is turned inside out.
They say the best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody new. When Kash offers his services to the cause, it sounds like the perfect plan.
What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love with the gardener.
But they were right—there’s no such thing as perfect.
And I’m the fool who finds out the hard way.

Everyone hates parts of their job.
Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.
But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Bennet.
The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint. When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him. Almost.
He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
The Bennett Brothers
I knew, I just knew when I read the first book in this series Coming Up Roses and got a small glimpse of Kash Bennett, I was gonna fall in love hard! Ms. Hart never fails to exceed my expectations!
Gilded Lily is Kash’s story. It’s Lila’s story, it’s the lush story of their blooming relationship.
Kash is the gentle giant, with magic in his hands and a scarred heart. He is unbecoming in his assumptions of his worth and his ability to make a woman like Lila happy. He feels he is better as being the “rebound” fella, but he is so much more. I love him so hard for his vulnerabilities and his strength of character, for his calming demeanor and how he makes Lila feel.
Lila is a lady boss to the extreme! She is so focused on her career track that she doesn’t see the garden through the leaves. When she is bombarded by thorns and spikes of the heart, it’s Kash she turns to. She feels safe with him and in her world that means everything.
This series, this wonderfully fresh twist on Pride and Prejudice is quirky, funny, full of heart, full of heat in the best way. Thank you, Ms. Hart, for being brave enough to take a classic and put your wonder spin on it!
