In the picturesque town of Serendipity, New York, three siblings have grown up in the shadow of their proud and respected police chief father. But what do love, fate, and fortune have in store for the next generation of Serendipityand#8217;s finest?
Assistant D.A. Erin Marsden is Serendipityand#8217;s quintessential good girl. The daughter of the exand#150;police chief, sheand#8217;s never made a misstep, content with her quiet, predictable life...or so she thinks. Until Cole Sanders shows up with heated interest in his eyes and shadows in his past.
After seven years of deep undercover work in New York, Cole returns to town to help his aging father and find his moral compass again. Not to get involved with wholesome Erin Marsden. Even as a rebellious teen, he knew a girl like Erin was off limits. But neither can resist their off-the-charts chemistry, and a one-night stand brings complications neither expected.
Then a case puts Erin in a killerand#8217;s crosshairs, and Erin succumbs to Coleand#8217;s take-charge attitude. As a bodyguard, heand#8217;s the best. As a lover, heand#8217;s even better. But thereand#8217;s more than Erinand#8217;s safety at stake. And Cole must forgive the sins of his past and prove to himselfand#151;and to Erinand#151;that heand#8217;s capable of the love and the forever she so desperately needs.
"Bestseller Phillips rounds out her sexy trio of contemporary romances set in Serendipity, N.Y. (after Serendipity and Destiny) with another well-crafted tale. Officer Dare Barron hates dealing with the frequently drunk and disorderly Brian McKnight. The only benefit is seeing Brian's sister, Liza, as she bails Brian out yet again. When the handsome cop confesses his attraction, Liza tentatively agrees to see where things go despite fretting over her brother being a public nuisance. Liza's habit of enabling her brother keeps tripping up the relationship, but Dare will do anything to keep her safe when she's targeted by her brother's menacing creditors. Phillips creates sympathetic and interesting characters who realistically grow and mature despite their unhappy past actions and experiences. Excellent writing, deft plotting, believable situations, and a satisfying romance add up to a winner. Agents: Kimberly Witherspoon and David Forrer, InkWell Management."
