Bobby Spencer never did things the way his father wanted. Instead of majoring in business, he opened a restaurant in Trinity Harbor. Now he's locking horns with the mayor, who plans on developing the waterfront. The spectacle begins when he finds a carousel horse on his front lawn.

The mayor's daughter, Jenna Pennington Kennedy, is determined to prove once and for all that her business skills are not to be trifled with. She's going to get the contract for the redevelopment of the waterfront projectif she can only get Bobby to meet with her. The carousel horse she sent certainly captured his attention.

However, when the horse is stolen, the two are forced to work together to get it back. Jenna is determined to get Bobby to work with her; he's busy fighting his attraction.

With a true sense of fun and humor, Ms. Woods knows how to write romance that warms your heart and tickles your funny bone. You'll want to see the folks of Trinity Harbor again, and thankfully you will, later this year. (Mar., 400 pp., $6.50)
