Publisher Comments:

What happens when three irresistibly sexy brothers lose a poker bet to their enterprising sister? They get hired out for her housecleaning venture. Now, the Manley Maids are at your service. Satisfaction guaranteed. Its what a woman wants...

Resort entrepreneur Sean Manley was all set to buy an historic mansion at a great price, making a name for himself while making millions, when the seller and a poker bet change the game. Now hes in the place as a hunky male maid and theres one more complication: Livvy Carolla.

The house is Livvys inheritance. Her plan? Unload it to the highest bidder and use the cash to start her own bakery business. One look at “the help” and shes hot to take him with her. Until she finds out hes got a secret agenda.

But when Sean falls for the free-spirited, strong-willed Livvy, he has new ideas for the estate—and Livvys part in it. If all goes well, theyll both be getting what they want. And then some.

 

Review:

"When the three Manley brothers lose a poker bet, they're forced to work as maids for their sister's cleaning company in this clever start to Fennell's contemporary series. Entrepreneur Sean Manley sees an opportunity in his assignment to clean a mansion, and he makes a deal to develop the property into a landmark resort after the death of matriarch Merriweather. His plans are compromised when Merriweather makes a new will leaving the house to her estranged granddaughter, Livvy Carolla, and Livvy's menagerie of animal rescues — on the condition that Livvy find a series of clues about her family history within two weeks. Sean helps Livvy solve the puzzle while planning to hide the last clue, but he's torn between his desire for professional success and his feelings for the bohemian Livvy, even when he has to clean up after a loquacious parrot and a pair of randy alpacas. Fans of Fennell's quirky style will enjoy the entertaining misadventures on the way to a too-easy resolution. Agent: Roberta Brown, Brown Literary Agency.

About the Author

Judi Fennell has had her nose in a book and her head in some celestial realm all her life, including those early years when her mom would exhort her to “get outside!” instead of watching Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie on television. So she did—right into Dads hammock with her Nancy Drew books. These days shes more likely to have her nose in her laptop and her head (and the rest of her) at a favorite writing spot, but shes still reading either her latest manuscript, her friends books, or helping authors bring their books to readers with her business. A PRISM and Golden Leaf Award winner, Judi is the author of tongue-in-cheek, lighthearted romantic comedies. She lives in suburban Philadelphia with her own menagerie—which might just include a few of the two-legged kind.
