for the surprise of their lives as love finally drags them
to the altar for their own Happily-Ever-After.
Maggie Sinclair, Connie Reyes, and Emma Grant have been best friends for years. The three women are as different as they come, but that has only helped sustain them during the trying times in their lives, like the marriage of yet another one of their acquaintances. As they stand at the altar, always as bridesmaids, they are the only single women who remain from their circle of college friends and business colleagues.
Successful women in their own right, they’re not in a rush to do the dash up the aisle, but Fate has a way of shaking the foundations of their very settled lives.
And then there were three. . .
ONE SUMMER NIGHT will be available in October 2017 from Sourcebooks Casablanca.
Maggie Sinclair has tried everything to save her family’s business, including mortgaging their beloved beach house on the Jersey Shore. But now, she’s out of options.
The Sinclair and Pierce families have been neighbors and enemies for almost thirty years. That hasn’t stopped Owen Pierce from crushing on Maggie, and he’s determined to invest in her success. Now he has to convince her that he’s more than just trouble with a capital T…
And then there were two. . .
She had vowed never to make the same mistakes as her mother . . .
As the only daughter of a single mom, Connie Reyes knows how hard it is to raise a child alone and without prospects. At an early age Connie vowed she would never put herself or her child in a similar position. But Jonathan Pierce is oh so tempting and a night of passion leads to an unwanted pregnancy that may upend Connie’s law career and all that she’s worked for.
He has sworn never to be shackled by family and responsibilities. . .
Jonathan Pierce’s home life was anything but great. A father who was always absent at work and a mother who left them for someone who would love her. The only redeeming family connection is his big brother Owen who has always been there for him. In the weeks leading up to the Owen’s wedding, sexual tension sizzles between him and the bride’s best friend Connie. Jonathan would love to show the uber responsible and work-a-holic lawyer a good time.
When opportunity presents itself the night of the wedding, mutual desire will bring a lifetime of responsibility.
Can Connie and Jonathan find a way to balance their very different personalities and build a loving family together?
And then there was one. . .
She never dreamed that the happily-ever-after would change her life. . .
But as her two best friends find love, Emma worries about what her future will bring. She has seen all too often what happens once husbands and children arrive. She puts on a brave face because she wants her buddies to be happy, but as a wedding planner, she has seen one too many marriages gone sour. Not to mention her parents’ bitter divorce which has soured her on the idea of marriage for herself. She can’t imagine ever finding a man who can bring her a happily-ever-after.
He’s been in love with her forever and can’t understand why she can’t see it. . .
Carlo Texeira knows why Emma avoids relationships and yet he can’t help but wonder how someone who puts such love and care into others’ dreams can’t allow herself to believe in the fairy tale. He sees the yearning on her face when she spends time with him and his big boisterous family and knows that deep inside, she wants the same thing. Carlo hopes that one day he can provide her with that because he’s sure Emma holds the key to his heart in her hands.
