New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery brings you a heartwarming tale for the holidays!
The unrelenting cheer in Fool's Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don't happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception. An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they're estranged. She won't add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother's best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she's recruited to stage Fool's Gold's winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.
Jaded lawyer Dante Jefferson is getting used to the backwater town he now reluctantly calls home, but the pounding of little dancers' feet above his temporary office is more than any man should have to take! When he confronts their gorgeous teacher, he's unprepared for the attraction that sears him down to the soul.
Bestseller Mallery's 10th romance set in the Sierra Nevada town of Fool's Gold, Calif. (after All Summer Long) brings together two people who aren't exactly thrilled to be in town for the holidays. Dancer Evie Stryker feels like an outcast, and only returns to Fool's Gold after a leg injury sidelines her performing career. Lawyer Dante Jefferson ends up in the tiny hamlet after his law partner, Rafe Stryker-Evie's older brother-relocates their practice from San Francisco. Neither is looking for romance: Evie can't wait to heal and get back to work, and Dante, whose mother was shot and killed as a "lesson" after Dante dated a gang leader's girlfriend, is terrified of loving anyone. As Evie tries to forgive her family for a tough childhood and Dante wonders whether he can risk his heart, both experience the closeness and camaraderie of a small town where everyone pulls together. This sweet Christmas treat is a pleasant introduction to Mallery's popular series. Agent: Annelise Robey, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Oct.) ? (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
