Kiss Me at Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt:

Welcome to Willoughby Close… a charming cluster of cozy cottages, each with a story to tell and a happy ending to deliver…

After her husband unexpectedly dies, Ava moves to Willoughby Close, trying to keep her chin up and herself to herself as she’s always done—not answering questions, not making friends, and not seeing much of a future. Her marriage was far from perfect, but it offered her a much-needed security that has now been ripped away. She’s not sure what to do now that she’s thirty-five, widowed, penniless… and unexpectedly pregnant with her late husband’s child.

Jace Tucker is the over-the-top sexy caretaker of Willoughby Manor, and he can see beneath Ava’s glamor girl act to the hurt she’s been hiding for so long. She has secrets for a reason—and so does he. The last thing she needs right now is a fling with a man who hides a past as regrettable as her own.

But with a baby to think about, and neighbors determined to be her friends, Ava finds herself starting to change and even more alarmingly, beginning to hope. Can Willoughby Close work its everyday magic on a woman like her? And when the past comes calling for both her and Jace, will they have to answer for their previous mistakes?

Excerpt from Kiss Me At Willoughby Close: 

“Ah, here he is.”
A beat-up pickup truck pulled into the courtyard and Ava stepped back instinctively as the door opened and a man stepped out. She blinked slowly, taking in the long, jean-clad legs, the faded denim hugging muscular thighs and an impressive arse. Now she was the one checking out someone’s butt. She looked away, but not before her gaze had traveled up an equally impressive chest, clad in a gray t-shirt, and then clashed with the laughing eyes of a man who clearly knew just how good-looking he was. Ava could tell, because she knew how good-looking she was.Like seeing like.

Stupidly, a flush rose to her face, and she willed it down. She was not someone who blushed. And she had nothing to blush about it, in any case. She hadn’t actually been checking him out. Just… inspecting. Admiring, perhaps, because he was quite the specimen. But nothing more than that. The last thing she wanted to do right now was flirt, and he wasn’t her type anyway.

“Um… Jace Tucker?” Darren cleared his throat and held out one hand for what Ava suspected would be a limp, damp handshake.
“That’s me.” Jace Tucker had a low, rumbly voice, chocolate poured over gravel.
Of course. Did he practice that, along with the sexy, knowing smile? It all seemed a bit calculated. A bit too practiced and pat, like a party trick he pulled out at will.
“And you are?” he continued, and reluctantly Ava looked back at him, right into his laughing eyes the color of whiskey, framed by a square jaw and dark brown, rumpled just-climbed-out-of-bed hair.

“Ava Mitchell. I’m here to look at number three.” Which he already knew.
“Good thing, because that’s the key I have.” He fished a key out of his back pocket and ambled towards one of the doors in the middle of the close, one without a hanging basket or pot of pretty flowers. Ava followed, slipping her sunglasses up to her forehead as Jace Tucker opened the door and then moved to the side to let her through.
It shouldn’t have annoyed her, the way he did that. It was a gallant gesture, and yet one that seemed suspect since she had to squeeze by him, her breasts brushing against his chest. Ava fought another flush as she angled her face away from him and stepped into the little hallway of number three.
