Hallie Linn is two weeks away from taking her final vows at the convent when she gets tangled up in the lives of the Rollands. When a teenage boy mistakes friendship for love, Hallie agrees to a suggestion by the boy's father, Vincent Rolland, that she accompany them to their villa for the summer to convince the boy that Hallie is not the perfect woman he believes her to be. The problem is Vincent begins to believe that Hallie is the one for him. THE FRENCHMAN'S BRIDE (3) by Rebecca Winters puts a very unique spin on romance. She expertly weaves romantic entangl- ements and a meaty plot around some very tight character restrictions.
