Consistently dazzling, Mallery is sure to delight
her fans with the launch of a new series set in the small foothill community of Fool's Gold, Calif. The premise of a town trying to flourish despite its perennial shortage of men is charming and funny. Along with the humor, Mallery always manages to build in emotional drama to keep her stories both edgy and amusing. No fool's gold here, it's the real deal!

Having lived a truly nomadic childhood, city planner Charity Jones can't wait to put down roots. Accepting a job to help bring in new business (and men) to tiny Fool's Gold seems like just the ticket. For whatever reason, men don't seem to stick around Fool's Gold. However, former Tour de France winner Josh Golden is one who has. The tragic racing accident that took the life of a teammate still haunts Josh to the point that he has retired from the sport. Being single in a town with so few men makes Josh the holy grail to the women -- but can Charity see through to the real man within? (HQN, May, 384 pp., $7.99)
