When A Woman Who's Willing To Say Yes...

Allison St. Claire has the face of an angel. That's part of the problem. She also sells quaint tea sets in the gift shop at Galveston's Pearl Island Inn. It doesn't exactly scream sexy! Years of having men treat her like a little sister is enough to drive a healthy woman crazy! Especially when a gorgeous hunk checks in and fails to recognize that Allison's more than willing. She's ready...

Meets A Man Who Isn't Listening...

Frustrated author Scott Lawrence is hoping to get lucky in more ways than one. A little fun in the sun with a beautiful woman may be just the inspiration he needs to cure his writer's block. No fuss. No commitment. But a 'good girl' like Allison? No way!

Then It's Time For Action.

When Allison makes her move, every bachelor bone in Scott's body tells him to swim for safety. But stronger instincts prevail, and the heat climbs higher than the temperature on the Gulf Coast. Now a four-letter word called love could turn a sweet spring diversion into the most unexpected and complicated fling of their lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Julie Ortolon has perfected the art of the male/female relationship." -Virginia Henley

"An author on the rise...endearing, emotional, and romantic!" —Romantic Times

Publishers Weekly
Now that siblings Allison, Aurora and Adrian St. Claire have launched their bed and breakfast in Galveston, Tex., and Aurora has found true love, it's Allison's turn to face the challenges of the heart in this inspirational sequel to Falling for You. Prim and petite Allison has the sweet, wholesome image that usually scares off commitment-shy men like bestselling author Scott Lawrence, who's staying at the supposedly haunted inn to stir up his creative juices. But when Allison decides she's tired of being a nice girl and propositions him, he goes against his better instincts and agrees. The two share an amazing night together, but Allison is hesitant to repeat the experience, fearing that love will only lead to the kind of pain she experienced 10 years earlier when she fell prey to a scheming boyfriend and suffered a miscarriage. Scott, whose parents are anything but happily married, shares Allison's unease about relationships, but he can't seem to keep his hands off of her. Ortolon's protagonists must overcome some tough emotional issues before they can set their sights on the future, but their journey is laced with humor and even a little history (provided by the inn's ghosts). Earnest and endearing, Ortolon's newest is a heartwarming and at times heartrending read. (Jan.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Most authors say they grew up reading. But not Julie Ortolon. Born with dyslexia, she didn't even learn to read until her early twenties when she discovered that romance novels were worth the struggle. It was only with the additional discovery of computers with spell-check that she was able to turn her favorite hobby—daydreaming romantic stories—into a career. Having her first novel hit the USA Today bestseller list was a dream come true.

Julie lives on the shore of Lake Travis near Austin, TX with her journalist husband, exuberant Australian Shepherd, and spoiled tabby cat.

I really enjoyed this read. It was light hearted, with just enough grit to keep you wondering how things were going to work out. Of course in this genre they are all happy endings so I knew it was coming, but this author did a wonderful job of keeping me so hooked that when the end got there I was just glad there was going to be another to follow!!! **don't miss Chloe's story in the "Masters of Seduction" anthology

I love the series that the author writes. Just my kind of book. It is tastefully written with touches of history included to keep the reader's interest peaked for what comes next. Great job.
