New York Times bestselling author Janet Chapman “melds great characterization, sparkling humor, and spicy adventure” (RT Book Reviews) in this sizzling romance about a woman who suddenly inherits a business dynasty—only to discover that she must marry one of the three brothers who were expected to take over.
When Willa Kent rented a cottage to the funny old man who showed up at her door in rural Maine, she never expected that Abram Sinclair would turn out to be the owner and CEO of a shipping empire. Or that he’d ask her to go to New York City to give his proxy vote for a new CEO. Or that he’d ask her to choose which of his handsome, intelligent, and very eligible bachelor grandsons should succeed him.
When Abram suddenly dies, Willa is further shocked to discover that he’s left everything to her—but only if she marries one of his grandsons within three months. Otherwise, the company will be sold at a loss to their arch enemy.
Willa flees on Abram’s yacht to think things through, but soon runs into Abram’s oldest grandson, Sam, a self-made millionaire in his own right, who finds, to his surprise, that his grandfather’s offbeat scheme is growing more attractive by the moment.
But Willa isn’t about to let Sam steal her heart until she knows his true motives. If the man wants to marry for money, then first he must fall in love.
A native of rural central Maine, Janet Chapman (1956–2017) lived in a cozy log cabin on a lake with her husband, three cats, and a stray young bull moose. The author of the hugely popular Highlander time-travel series, she also wrote numerous contemporary romances.
