HOW TO TAME A MODERN ROGUE
Holquist's wonderful characters soon expose many layers and depths of feeling as her delightful romance combines the elegance of Regency times with
the modern world. A bit of a mystery evolves, and a lot of love is portrayed as both main characters accept the past and embrace the future.
Ready to move out of New York, 10th grade teacher Ally Gierdano had planned to head to San Francisco. But since her beloved grandmother is delusional and believes they're living in Regency times, Ally is helping fulfill her final wish instead and taking her to a country retreat in a horse and carriage.
Ally winds up in the company of carriage driver Mateo, his horse Paula, Granny Danny -- and the man Granny calls the Duke, Sam Carson. On the journey she discovers some interesting things about Sam and herself, as well as a startling surprise at journey's end. (FOREVER, Aug., 320 pp., $6.99)
