FALLING FOR YOU
Having lost their claim on the "haunted" mansion on Pearl Island to the LeRoches generations ago, the St. Claire siblings are thrilled to reclaim their heritage when Aurora "Rory" St. Claire sees a foreclosure sign on the property.
Rory convinces her brother Adrian and sister Alli to join forces and purchase the property to turn it into a B&B. Knowing that they'll need help with a loan and the paperwork, Rory approaches "Chance" Chancellor, scion of Galveston's premier banking family, for help. For Chance, whose life and future is planned out, Rory's wild and unpredictable charm throws him for a loop.
Chance finds himself caught up in the St. Claires' lives and dreams. This poses a serious problem, as his family is pressuring him to announce his engagement to a debutante and old family friend.
Wonderfully warm and funny characters make this humorous, yet at times poignant tale a real keeper! (Apr., 336 pp., $6.50)
