And the arrival of Matt Woods—sexy handyman and complete stranger—isn't helping. Watching him work makes Savannah long to take a trip into indulgence. That's so not a good idea—she's been there before and still hears the rumors. But Matt is much too delicious for this O'Neill to resist. It's a shame there's more to Matt than being good with his hands. Because when his true reasons for seeking her out are revealed, he could become another affair Savannah lives to regret.

Like stalwart soldiers standing silent guard, the mighty fortresses of Savannah once served as guardians over the new colony of Georgia. In 1733, Gen. James Oglethorpe, upon stepping ashore in this new world, authorized fortifications to be constructed to protect her new residents. Forts and townships now known only in name defended Georgia's first citizens against the Native Americans and the Spanish. Later they would stand a much greater challenge protecting them against more aggressive foes-the British, the Union Army, and ultimately, the Third Reich of Germany. Through vintage photographs of these magnificent architectural structures and the faces of devoted soldiers who once stood upon their ramparts, readers will feel as if they too were standing a vigilant watch, looking across the vast marshes and rivers surrounding Savannah. The images within these pages celebrate and honor the fortresses that allowed Savannah to prosper and expand from a colonial outpost to the majestic queen city of Georgia.

Louis Rivers, Ph.D., looks back at the accomplishments of a successful black family in Savannah, Georgia, with a detailed family history that celebrates hard work, black pride, and faith. The author has known the Simmons family his entire life, having gone to East Broad Street Elementary Public School with the Simmons, then to Beach Cuyler Public High Schools with the Simmons, and on to Georgia State College (now Savannah State University) with the Simmons. He also attended St. James A.M.E. Church with the Simmons. Beginning in 1920 when Walter Wallie Simmons married Daisy Alice Simmons, you’ll follow the family on their journey from Bluffton, South Carolina, to Savannah. By the time they moved with their first four children—Marie, John, Nellie, and Bessie—the Simmons were already confirmed A.M.E. Christians committed to the teachings of Jesus. The Simmons became one of Savannah’s most supreme, hardest-working families, and despite the many struggles they faced during World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War years, and Jim Crowism, they have survived and prospered. Celebrate the value of never giving up, and discover insights on achieving success with The Sun Shines on the Simmons Family in Savannah, Ga.
