Chicago Stars Quarterback Kevin Tucker has captivated and incensed Molly Somerville forever. And despite being the sister of the teams owner, he doesnt notice Molly until they both end up staying at the Calebows vacation home.

When Molly recklessly acts on her longstanding crush and takes advantage of Kevin, there are unexpected consequences. A hasty marriage seems like the best solution, but Kevins unforgiving anger is deep-seated. Only after seeing Molly spiral into depression once she has a miscarriage does he decide to take action by bringing Molly to a converted B&B he inherited from his minister parents. Will this mismatched pair divorce before the honeymoon is over?

No one can tell a story quite like Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Her unique brand of characters and humor are in a category all their own. (Feb., 384 pp., $23.00)

This Heart Of Mine / Chicago Stars/

Submitted by mlacroix on August 20, 2010 - 2:01pm.

Molly Somerville has a reputation for trouble. She's given away all the millions she inherited from her father and her only income is from the sale of her children books. Kevin Tucker, quarterback for the Chicago Stars. Molly has had a crush on Kevin forever and one night she goes a little to far and Kevin finds himself having sex with his bosses sister. Phebe and Dan Calebow force Kevin and Molly to marry when Molly finds herself pregnant. But after losing the baby Molly sinks into depression and Kevin comes to her rescue. Kevin has just inherited the summer camp that his parents and aunt had owned. There the two estranged people meet a young just married couple, who can't keep their hands off of eachother and Kevin's biological, actress mother, who wants to make amends.

I didn't like this book as much as I did Phoebe's book, but it was entertaining. I loved the way Molly's mind was always making up stories for future books. I was so angry at Kevin when he took the miscarriage that Molly had and ignored her. But he made up for it in the end. All in all this was a satisfying book.
