Book 2--A Dream for Lani
Book 3-Leah in Love (and trouble) Coming soon from Books We Love
Cosseted all her life, Lani Moore inherits a fortune, but yearns for a loving family. The chance to grab that arrives when two youngsters talk her into taking a flat in their house. Their father, Ryan, is enchanted by the air of intriguing melancholy about his new tenant. Will Lani’s lonely heart find the love she wants above all else?
“Good morning, Miss Moore,” he said. The casual flirt had vanished.
In a pale grey suit, and shirt of a darker shade, he was immaculate. But even clothed as a professional man of business he still exuded sex appeal—probably more than yesterday in his casual clothes.
“Good morning, Mr Bachus. Have you had the chance to find anything to suit me yet?” She cleared her throat—feeling silly again when her voice sounded husky and diffident. With a stiffening of the spine she stared at him.
He met her gaze head on. “Afraid not.” Was it her imagination or did he sound disinterested? What a peculiar way for an estate agent to carry on.
“Surely there must be something on the market in this area that would fit my requirements. That’s why I chose it here—there’s still a lot of open country even though it’s not far from the city.”
“We do have plenty of acreages, but most have enormous homes on them. On the other hand we have lots of smaller houses, but none with room for livestock.”
Good grief, he made it sound as if she had a dozen cows instead of one horse. “I only need a paddock for my horse, Mr Bachus,” she retorted.
The tenseness about him puzzled her. He seemed bored, and in a hurry to get away. “I understand that. Perhaps you could be a bit patient. I’ll be in touch as soon as I’ve tracked something suitable down.”
“I’m nothing if not patient,” she snapped, bristling as he nodded then walked off.
Damn the man. Why did she care if he seemed to find her unacceptable? What had she done to make him change his attitude? Surely she hadn’t imagined that spark of interest in the first few moments of their meeting? Sighing in hurt bewilderment she racked her brain for a reason. Surely he wasn’t one of those chauvinistic men who hated women with a career. Perhaps she should find another agent.
“I believe this is the best book I have ever read! I probably think something similar when I finish a book, but I have never before printed the words.
Ms. Tricia McGill keeps enticing us into the story with her wit and charming manner of writing. Of course, there is love and there is disaster. The love ebbs and flows and the “near hits and misses” just tug at the heartstrings. The ending may be predictable (after all, who wants a bad ending) but the journey is unforgettable! I urge you to read this winner!”
