Overview

As the eldest of three rebel-rousing brothers, Chase Chandler has waited a long time to leave his small-town roots behind. All bets are off when the single journalist meets a redhead who arouses a lot more than lust. Yet Sloane Carlisle isn't just any woman. She's a senator's daughter who is about to thrust him into the eye of a breaking political scandal-and a shot at a story that's already making headlines. All Chase has to do for an exclusive is keep her out of harm's way.

A woman who refuses to play the Washington game, Sloane has just been hit with a bombshell that calls her entire identity into question. Feeling vulnerable, she does something completely out of character: She spends an incredible, passionate night with a handsome stranger. The last thing she expects is to ever see him again. But when she goes to the Chandlers' hometown of Yorkshire Falls to uncover the truth about her family, there he is! Not only that, her sometime amour Chase Chandler is sticking closer than a Capitol Hill groupie and igniting more sparks than the Fourth of July.

Suddenly a guy who has always steered clear of marriage is falling for a serious-minded woman with a family secret that could land them both in danger. If they survive the fallout, what will it take to get Sloane to say the two words that could turn the town's most eligible bachelor into the world's sexiest spouse?

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Another sexy Chandler takes center stage in this conclusion to the trilogy that began with Phillips's bestsellers The Bachelor and The Playboy. This time, journalist Chase Chandler -- the oldest and most responsible of the three brothers -- finds himself tempted. When Chase is assigned to cover and protect redheaded Sloane Carlisle, a senator's daughter with a big family secret, all his wildest impulses go into overdrive. Even as Sloane tries to track down her biological father in Chase's hometown, a pair of menacing strangers seems to be one step ahead, and it will take all the Chandler brothers to put an end to the danger. It will also take a real sea change for Chase to convince Sloane he's no longer just another heartbreaker. Ginger Curwen
Publishers Weekly
Of all the bars in Washington, D.C., Sloane Carlisle happens to walk into the hole-in-the-wall where Chase Chandler is nursing a Miller draft. Avowed singleton Chase needs a cold one after overdosing on the marital bliss of his younger brother, Roman, and Roman's pregnant wife, Charlotte. (Roman and the third Chandler brother, Rick, starred in Phillips's paperback bestsellers The Bachelor and The Playboy.) Sloane has come in search of scotch straight up to recover from shocking news: she's not the biological daughter of Sen. Michael Carlisle, whose dead first wife, Sloane's mother, grew up in Yorkshire Falls, N.Y., where Chase is publisher of the local paper. Furthermore, Sloane has learned, two Carlisle staffers may be plotting to kill her real father. Chase knows none of this-only that here is "a vision in a dress so pink, so short, so bare, it ought to be illegal." And Sloane has no idea that Chase has come to Washington hoping for a scoop on Senator Carlisle. Nevertheless, one smoldering glance is enough to seal the couple's fate. The ensuing sex scene is vintage Phillips: uninhibited lubricity made responsible (condoms) and romantic (champagne). While the characters busily tell themselves and each other that it's just for tonight, readers have the bonus thrill of certainty that tonight is the beginning of forever. Whether between soft covers or hard, Phillips loves to get her hero and heroine in bed-or up against a pool table, surrounded by salivating louts, in the book's kinkiest passage. But family values so dominate the interstitial scenes, it's a safe bet that Senator Carlisle is a Republican. And that Phillips's fans will make the leap to hardcover in droves. Featured alternate selection of the Doubleday Book Club, the Literary Guild, Rhapsody and Venus Book Club. (Aug.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Chapter One

Chase Chandler walked out of the gate into Dulles International Airport and inhaled deeply. Each breath of air outside his hometown of Yorkshire Falls, New York, presented true freedom. At last.

"Hey, big brother!" His youngest sibling, Roman, pulled him into a bear hug. "Welcome to D.C. Good flight?"

"The best kind. Short and on time." Chase hiked his duffel bag over his shoulder and started toward the exit. "How's the wife?"

A ridiculous smile settled on Roman's lips. "Charlotte's amazing. Getting bigger by the day. My kid's growing inside her," he added, as if he hadn't reminded them all of Charlotte's pregnancy one hundred times before. "One month to go." He rubbed his hands together in obvious anticipation.

"Just recently a wife and kid was the last thing you wanted. We had to toss a coin to decide which of us would give Mom the grandkid she wanted so badly. Now look at you. A husband and soon-to-be dad, and happy about both." Chase shook his head, amazed and pleased with the changes in his little brother. The kid was settled and happy, which made Chase happy. He'd done his duty by his family.

Roman shrugged. "What can I say? That was before. Now I'm a changed man."

"Before you grew up, you mean?" Chase winked and his brother chuckled.

Both men knew Roman had fought long and hard until he concluded that marrying Charlotte wouldn't mean giving up his foreign-correspondent lifestyle, merely trading it in for something more fulfilling. Now he had a job with the Washington Post as an op-ed columnist, a wife, and a family.

"You have no idea what you're missing," Roman said, not missing a beat. "A woman to come home to, a warm body in bed, and someone who loves you unconditionally."

Like religious fanatics, both Roman and Rick, his middle sibling who'd also recently gotten hitched, had begun to preach the benefits of marriage. Chase wasn't buying it. "Trust me, I can live without it, thank you very much. If I get that lonely, I'll find myself a dog."

His dreams didn't include a wife and family. His brothers, as much as he loved them, had been a handful to raise. He didn't need little rugrats of his own. From the time he'd turned eighteen and his father had unexpectedly passed away, Chase had been the male parent and role model. He'd taken over as publisher of the Yorkshire Falls Gazette and helped his mother raise his brothers -both jobs he'd never resented. Chase was not one to look back. And now, at thirty-seven, he was free to move on with a life of his own and grasp the dreams he'd put on hold. Starting with this trip to Washington.

He walked around a slow-moving couple and headed for the sign marked PARKING GARAGE. He glanced at Roman. The dimwitted gaze hadn't dulled and Chase grinned. "I guess I can call Mom and tell her you're strutting around like a proud papa."

"Don't bother," Roman said, falling into step beside him. "When we're not in Yorkshire Falls, she checks in once a day with Charlotte by phone."

Chase nodded. That was his mother, Raina, meddling and proud of it. "Well, I couldn't be happier for you." He patted his brother on the back.

"And I'm glad you've left the paper in someone else's hands and decided to put yourself first for once."

Chase answered Roman with a grunt. After all, the kid was right. Not once in the years since he'd taken over had he abdicated responsibility for the Gazette.

"The car's parked in the lot." Roman gestured in the direction they needed to go and Chase followed, nearly tripping over a young kid who'd decided to play tag.

"Thanks for picking me up," Chase said, noticing that the wayward kid had been corralled by his parents. Roman and Rick had been eleven and fifteen, respectively, when their dad passed away. They'd been old enough to take care of themselves and Chase hadn't had to deal with their toddler years. Thank God. Their late teens had been tough enough.

"How's Mom?" Roman asked.

"What do you mean?"

"Her ... ah ... health."

"Stuttering for a reason?" he asked.

Roman picked up his pace but remained silent. Chase could almost see his brother's brain churning to come up with a reply. A few months ago, Chase had rushed his mother to the emergency room with chest pains. Later, she'd told her sons she'd been diagnosed with a serious heart condition. Though they'd spoken to the doctor, confidentiality had prevented them from finding out anything more than what Raina had told them. Her three sons had danced around her bedside, making sure she took care of herself. Since she'd curtailed all activity, Chase hadn't thought to question the diagnosis further, until he began to notice inconsistencies in his mother's behavior. Too much color in her cheeks for someone with a weak heart. Too much swigging of antacids. The more recent prescription drug to treat gastric reflux, which if left untreated could have severe consequences. And running up and down the stairs when she thought she wouldn't be caught.

As a newspaperman with damn good instincts, he began to suspect blatant manipulation. He also suspected his brothers, who seemed less concerned with their mother's health lately, knew something he didn't.

"Rick and I need to talk to you," Roman said.

"About Mom's fake heart condition?"

Roman stopped in his tracks, causing one woman to nearly bump into him and a man to dart around him, cursing as he passed. "You know?"

Chase nodded. "I do now."

"Shit." Roman met his gaze. "We were going to tell you."

Chase ran a hand through his hair and groaned. He didn't give a damn that they were in the middle of the airport blocking pedestrian traffic. He'd been itching to confront Roman on this and was damn glad to have it off his chest. "Any reason I was left out?"

"I discovered the truth just before Charlotte and I got together for good. Rick figured things out more recently. If he could've come to D.C., we'd have told you this weekend." He held his hands out in front of him. "What can I say?"

"You don't owe me an explanation. Mom does."

Roman raised an eyebrow. "You don't know why she faked being sick?"

"Explanation's the wrong word. I know she did it because she wanted grandkids. She wanted us to feel so bad we'd do her bidding. I get that. But she damn well owes us all an apology."

"If it makes you feel any better, her antics have seriously curtailed her social life. She and Eric haven't been able to go dancing, date, do any of the things she'd like to do."

"Small consolation." Chase rolled his shoulders to release the tension. "What do you say we forget about the family problems this weekend and just have fun?"

"Sounds good to me. We'll get you settled at the hotel, have dinner with Charlotte, and tomorrow you'll get your first taste of D.C. politics. Let's get the hell out of here."

"No argument from me."

Roman started for the elevators leading to the parking garage and Chase joined him. "I'm not surprised Senator Carlisle's going to run for vice president," Chase said of the story that brought him to town.

Roman nodded. "Me neither. The man's political perfection, even on a second marriage."

Fortunately for Chase, Jacqueline Carlisle, the senator's deceased wife, was born and raised in Yorkshire Falls, giving Chase the link to his hometown that led him to D.C. "With the current V.P. too old and unwilling to run again, our president needs a newer model. Someone with shine and polish."

"U.S. senator Michael Carlisle from New York," Roman said.

"Yep. I did research on the man. After Jacqueline, the first wife, died, Carlisle married her college roommate and best friend. Madeline Carlisle raised the senator's first daughter, Sloane, then later Madeline and the senator had twins, Eden and Dawne." Political perfection, as Roman had said.

"Ever see photos of the senator's oldest daughter?"

Chase shook his head. "Just a glimpse of the twins or a grainy background shot. Why?"

Roman laughed. "I just think you'll like what you see. Elevator's this way." He pointed left.

"From a professional standpoint, I like everything about the Carlisles." Because barring scandal or stupidity, the high-profile, good-looking senator was on his way to the presidency. And Chase intended to use his local connection to make one helluva journalistic splash.

Roman laughed. "You do realize that when I asked about Carlisle's daughter, I wasn't talking about work?" He rolled his eyes. "Of course not. You're always on top of things, always the professional." He sobered. "You know, I learned from you."

The pride in his voice made Chase feel like a fraud. Roman had accomplished more in his lifetime than Chase ever had.

"And you're right," Roman said, oblivious to Chase's inner thoughts. "This story gives you the perfect opportunity to break out of small-town coverage. With the right angle, you could get picked up by one of the bigger papers."

At his brother's words, Chase's adrenaline began pumping in a way he couldn't remember experiencing, not since he'd stood at his father's funeral and buried his dreams. But patience and family loyalty had paid off. Chase's time had finally come.

The elevator doors slid open and they stepped inside. "It just so happens, I have that right angle. The one that'll put you ahead of the other guys following Carlisle's scent. Want to know what I didn't tell you on the phone?" Roman asked.

"Sure." Chase dropped his duffel to the floor and glanced at his brother, his body humming with anticipation.

"Charlotte is friendly with Madeline Carlisle. She was a customer in her lingerie store here in D.C., but they've become friends. Good friends. Madeline doesn't give many interviews, but I can get you an exclusive, one-on-one with the senator's wife."

Roman's eyes gleamed with excitement and Chase's anticipation heightened, the thrill of a big story tantalizing him, arousing and heightening all his instincts. "Roman?"

His brother glanced up. "Yeah?"

Chase wasn't a man comfortable or good at expressing his feelings. His brothers were used to his long silences. They understood him better than anyone. He inclined his head. "Thanks."

Roman studied him through hooded eyes. "I'd say I owe you this one, but you'd probably haul off and deck me. Let's just say you're damn good, you deserve it, and leave it at that."

Chase nodded. "Fine by me."

"Last thing," Roman said as the elevator door reopened and the dark parking garage appeared. "D.C. isn't just good for political intrigue. It's got its share of willing women as well."

Chase frowned. "I thought you were happily married."

"I am. But you, big brother, aren't."

Sloane Carlisle attempted to pair her beloved fuchsia minidress with a staid black jacket, then cringed at the result. A Betsey Johnson original was meant to be seen, not covered. With regret, she relegated the outfit to the back of her closet along with the rest of her retro wear. She couldn't possibly put on such an outrageous color, short skirt, or bared-back halter. Not tomorrow, the day her senator father would announce his decision to accept the presidential candidate's offer to be his running mate in the next election.

She sighed and pulled out a powder blue Chanel suit and laid it on her bed. Though not her preference, the conservative choice was much more appropriate for Senator Carlisle's oldest daughter. Although Sloane often felt like the odd sibling out in a political family that enjoyed the spotlight, she understood the necessity for thinking before she dressed, spoke, or acted, just in case the press was sniffing out a story. And Sloane always performed as her family expected.

Twenty minutes later and half an hour early, she stood outside her father's hotel suite. Her parents had set up temporary residence in the D.C. hotel, leaving their home in New York State behind. And now they planned one last intimate family gathering before the media frenzy began.

She was about to knock when the sound of angry whispers carried toward her.

"I will not stand by and see twenty years of hard work disintegrate before my eyes." She recognized the voice of Franklin Page, her father's campaign manager, right-hand man, and longtime friend.

Frank frequently overreacted in order to prevent a crisis, and his bellowing didn't frighten her now. She raised her hand to knock on the door, which had been left open a sliver, when Frank's assistant, Robert Stone, spoke, preventing her from intruding.

"You say this Samson man claims to be Sloane's father?" He snorted, his disbelief evident.

"He more than claims."

Sloane sucked in a startled breath and clenched her fists. His words couldn't possibly be true. Jacqueline and Michael Carlisle were her biological parents. She had no reason to believe otherwise. But her stomach rolled and nausea threatened.

"Does he have proof?" Robert asked in a voice so low Sloane had to strain to hear and she missed Frank's reply.

"Doesn't need any. Michael verified it." Frank spoke, this time loud enough for her to hear. "He just refuses to act in his own best interest and do anything about this Samson person." A brief pause followed. "Dammit, don't you know better than to leave the door open? Michael and Madeline will be back from shopping any minute. He can't hear what we have planned."

"Which is?"

"Give us some privacy and I'll explain everything. This man Samson is a threat to the campaign. And any threat has to be eliminated."

Frank bellowed, but he never made idle threats. Sloane swallowed hard just as the door slammed shut in her face, leaving her on the outside of her father's suite and, if Frank's words were true, on the outside of her own life.

By the time dinner finally ended, Chase had had more of his brother and sister-in-law's matrimonial happiness than he could stomach in one sitting. While Roman took a tired Charlotte home, Chase decided to check out the D.C. nightlife and the singles scene. After some asking around, he found the perfect hole-in-the-wall bar around the corner from his hotel where he could kick back and relax.

He ordered a Miller Genuine Draft and took in the scenery, which consisted of a pool table, a small, scarred dance floor, varied beer signs hanging on old paneled walls, and not much else. Until the door opened and she walked inside, a vision in a dress so pink, so short, so bare, it ought to be illegal.

No matter what his brother thought, Chase wasn't a monk. He'd just kept his social life discreet in deference to his fatherlike status, and over the years, the habit stuck. Most recently he'd hooked up with Cindy Dixon, who lived in Hampshire, the next town over. They were friends who'd begun sleeping together when the whim struck, neither wanting to be indiscriminate in this day and age. The arrangement satisfied Chase physically, but no longer inspired him, so he wasn't surprised when this sexy siren captured his attention.

Russet-colored hair cascaded past her shoulders in thick waves, making him itch to run his fingers through the unruly strands.

    A must read!

    I'm definitely a Carly Phillips fan and this series is one of my favorites! The Chandler brothers have been a joy to read about. I think every woman can identify with falling for a guy who is notorious for not wanting to settle down and that's part of what makes the books so good. Love, drama, heartache, and suspense all combine in this book to make it a must read for any romantic. Would definitely recommend!

    Carley Phillips Trilogy

    I got hooked on her trilogy. There is no better way to spend the afternoons then getting caught up in a good book. I wish the brothers were real instead of fictional and that there was one for me....YUMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
    I just bought her other book 'Under the Boardwalk' after finishing the trilogy. I can't wait to start it. I Love this author!

    My favorite Chandler Brother

    Chase is the most intriguing of the three. This is not just a great love story but also a great thriller. And the prologue sums things up nicely giving it a good ending but not prolonging it and taking away from Chase's story.

    Very sweet ending

    The Heartbreaker was a fun and light read. This trilogy...so far...are the only books by Carly Phillips that I've read and I really enjoyed each and every book. Ms. Phillips is pure talent, leaving nothing out in the mind's eye of her readers...however, she does have a tendency to add a little too much 'fluff' that does nothing to add to the story and I found myself with each of the 3 books in the trilogy skimming pages towards the end. That said, the romance between Chase and Sloane was HOT HOT HOT!!

    Awesome ending for this trilogy

    I read all books about the Chandlers, I liked all three, but this book was the best of all.I really am glad that Chase was finally being able to get a chance of happiness. I have to say that I do like these characters and the closing was perfect. It seems to be a story of the whole family. Good read.

    Overrated

    While not a bad story, this book certainly proves the theory that you can't tell a book by it's cover, even with a synopsis. Implications of excitement and steamy romance were what lead me to read this book and it didn't quite deliver. At best I can say it was cute and readable and not a complete waste of time. It didn't make me grin, laugh or sigh, it was merely OK.

    Entertaining

    I agree that this book was not as great as the first two but it was still pretty good. I like the writing style of Carly Phillips so I enjoy reading her books. There is definitely better romance out there, but all in all, I thought this was a worthwhile read

    Good book just wrong title

    THe book was great. I read it in three days. On the third day I meant to read only 4 chapters but I ended up reading the remaining chapters finishing the whole book. I don't think that the title did the book justice. I hope that the Chandlers brothers have cousins.
