Susan Mallery is the author of the New York Times best-selling series of Fool’s Gold romances, including Only Mine, Only Yours, and Only His.
What I love most about contemporary romance is the fact that, at its best, the characters could live next door, be my best friend, and the girl always gets the guy. Serendipity is a funny, sexy story with exactly the right mix of sass and heart.
Faith Harrington is back in Serendipity with something to prove and a life to fix. Circumstances haven't been exactly kind, and Faith herself is a bit to blame. She's smart, she's willing to take responsibility for what she did wrong and she's facing down those who want to call her out on who she was and what her father did to the town.
Ethan Barron is one yummy hero. A reformed bad boy with a couple of brothers who want nothing to do with him and a whole lot of people willing to assume the worst. If it sounds like a fun ride, it is. There are wonderful secondary characters, and the promise for more books to come. I think the other Barron brothers are going to be as toe-curling as Ethan and I can't wait for the next installment in the series.
Prolific bestseller Phillips kicks off a trilogy with this sexy, thought-provoking contemporary romance. Phillips creates likable characters with realistic problems and conflicts that don't smother them in angst, and readers will root for the happy ending that Faith and Ethan have earned. (Sept.)
