An impetuous dreamer and a swoon-worthy banker prove that when opposites attract, passions ignite!

Aurora St. Claire is perfectly happy with her life as a guide on a tour boat in Galveston, Texas until she sees Oliver Chancellor putting a foreclosure sign in front of a dilapidated mansion on a private island once owned by her notorious ancestors. The sight sparks a secret dream to restore the mansion that she and her siblings should have inherited and run it as a bed and breakfast. To make that dream a reality, Rory needs a business loan, and Chance is just the man who can help her.

Chance’s well-ordered life includes taking his place in the hallowed halls of the family bank, and someday marrying into an equally prominent Galveston family. His plans do not include having the object of his high school crush sweep him into a whirlwind of far-reaching dreams. It’s obvious, however, that Rory needs someone with a head for business and her enthusiasm proves too infectious to resist.

Before the mismatched pair knows what hit them, they find themselves falling in love, which complicates everything. Will Chance be able to keep his life on course? Or will he throw all his cautious plans out the window and follow his heart into uncharted territory?

“A thoroughly delightful, fast-paced romance about what happens when opposites attract.” –Old Book Barn Gazette

    Even though I knew there was no such island in Galveston Bay, I was ready to book a couple of nights for my wife and I to get away. Excellent story!
