What happens when two people who are both of the same mind—this being to steer well clear of emotional entanglements—are struck down by instant attraction.
Kate last met Liam when she was bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding. A gangly, uncertain fourteen year old, going through the painful problems associated with growing up, she took an instant dislike to Liam, who made fun of her. When her recently widowed sister talks her into reluctantly accompanying her to her brother-in-law’s home, which was built by its owner, architect Liam, Kate falls in love with the house and, unfortunately for her, finds that she soon has corresponding feelings for the man who owns it. Meanwhile, Liam cannot believe that the tall, insecure teenager he met at his brother’s wedding years ago has blossomed into this beautiful, talented woman. His inbuilt antennae that had served him well, stood every chance of being annihilated if he didn’t watch out. Reviews “This is a delightful love story. Ms. McGill pulls you into the story from the beginning with her vivid descriptions of the beautiful Australian setting and the plot conceived by Bart and Viola to get Liam and Kate together. There’s a wonderful touch of humor as Kate and Liam proclaim they have nothing more than a passing interest in each other. I could feel the emotion and sense the mutual attraction between the two, and I was never disappointed as I progressed from page-to-page. Once I started, I had to finish... that should tell you how much I enjoyed Ms. McGill’s captivating story.” Ginger Simpson “What a great book! I loved the Aussie humor, and of course read the entire book in my head with an accent which made Liam even hotter (as I love accents). Giving into the desire of the man she knows she belongs with will take Katie on the wildest ride of her life.... A tantalizing page turner that will make your heart skip a beat every time Katie and Liam are together." Jenn Nixon “Tricia McGill has done it again. McGill makes her characters come alive with such skill we forget we are reading fiction and begin to root for the heroine, get angry at the hero, love them both and want to shake them and tell them to get together already that's where they belong. Mc Gill's unique voice and turn of a phrase makes her work fresh and delightful to read. No worn out phrases and trite clichés for McGill. We get characters we can empathize with and love scenes to dream about . . . sensual and beautiful, a story that lives on in your mind long after the last kiss. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good story with plenty of suspense, warmth and beautiful prose. Almost literary in style, McGill has put together a story you won't want to put down and will not soon forget.” Billie A Williams, “Kate and Liam possess artistic temperaments, and you know that there are going to be fireworks, you just never know how many or what kind. This is a fun and interesting exploration into love and all its trials. It starts with a pair of matchmaking siblings, is complicated by a teenaged crush, and is upset by mixed signals, and a sizzling attraction that is hard to resist. This contemporary romance is a great adventure into the lives of two people who just don't recognize love when they feel it, and are really fighting a losing battle from the start. Tricia has provided a wonderful cat and mouse relationship, with plenty of sensual overtones. Liam and Kate are an entertaining pair, and I found this a delightful read.” ROSE at Romance at Heart
