Welcome to Climax Creek, North Carolina
"Built on Tradition, Moving Toward the Future"
Climax Creek is a small, quaint town situated between Greensboro and Sanford in North Carolina. Bordered by I-85 and three North Carolina state highways, it's occupied by less than sixteen hundred people. Climax Creek is the kind of town where you won't find a Starbucks, but you can get a great cup of coffee from Paulina down at Cool Beans. Watch out for Paulina- she'll talk your ear off if you let her. Down at Phipps Pharmacy, Quinn Phipps has got a cure for whatever might be ailing you. Say the wrong thing to your significant other? Minnie Hughes has got an "apology special" running down at her flower shop- she'll fix you up. Feel the need for some spiritual guidance? Climax Creek has four churches- take you pick. If you're looking for something fancy and pretentious, this isn't the place. But if you're looking for a little Southern comfort, the kind that you can't get out of a bottle, then stop on by.
The Playa of Guilford County...
Dalton Dunn is the playboy son of the wealthiest family in Climax Creek. His reputation for being a serial dater is well known, and in the past has been a point of pride for him. Now, with all his siblings paired off and in relationship bliss, he's beginning to rethink the way he's been living his life. But if the infamous Dalton Dunn is going to settle down with a woman, not just any woman will do. She has to be his equal.
A Woman Who Knows Her Worth...
Patrice Nelson leads a pretty quiet life, working at Minnie's Marvelous Blooms and dreaming of a career in interior design. She enjoys the company of gentlemen, and dates as widely as her high standards will allow. She's never looked at Dalton as more than an acquaintance, but when he approaches her with an intriguing offer to be the woman on his arm, she's somehow drawn into his plan. Not one to back down, she lays out her own challenge.
A Daring Challenge...
Dalton is sure he can win Patrice, and she's sure she can resist him. When he asks her to take a chance on him, she agrees; conditionally. Her terms are simple: if he can win her heart in one week, then she'll be his forever.
