This wonderful story is full of absolutely charming characters. The intelligent dialogue moves along at a spanking pace. The hero's gradual discovery that he's ready to settle down is a joy to read. Full of delightful humor, this is a fun and romantic tale that has many interesting side romances.

When Doug's best friend suggests it might be time Peter Pan grew up, it sticks with the 40-year-old bachelor, especially since his work-hard/play-hard philosophy has recently left him feeling empty.

When he attends his cousin's weeklong pre-wedding celebration and a strange woman greets him with a kiss, he agrees to pair up with her for the week to avoid the matchmakers. Rosie is different from any woman he has ever met, and Doug wonders if he's ready to settle down. Has Peter Pan found his match? (HQN, Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
