Penguin Publishing Group / June 2, 2015 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital
From the New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Wedding comes a novel about a man and a woman whose summer is about to get very, very hot...
Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford....
Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there's no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for.
Spring is the best time of the year—with the renewal of all things dormant—flowers blooming, trees putting on new leaves and growth, and gardens coming to life. The weather is perfect too. It’s not too cold or too hot. But the biggest reason to be excited about spring is a new Julie James’ book.
Ms. James is taking a break from her FBI/U.S. Attorney series with Suddenly One Summer, but don’t worry, all her trademark characterization is still very much in evidence— competent, professional heroine who knows how to stand her ground, dealing with failure-is-not-an-option sexy hero. Plus her previous characters do make some cameos.
