Seasons in a Small Town -- Autumn
He sees what she's long hidden ... especially from herself.
Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.
After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:
Conscientious? Oh, yeah.
Agreeable? Not so much.
Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder ... Every time Vanessa goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious. And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that threaten that celibacy claim, scrape against his high school principal job and shake up life with his three kids.
Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his town, his life, his family? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?
Falling for Her, Book 3 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Seasons in a Small Town series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair and Jill Shalvis.
Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:
"You laugh, you angst, you maybe shed a couple tears or two, and at the end of it you move immediately onto the next book because -- unlike teenage Zeke -- you don't want to get away, all you want to do is go back."
"The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart and I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting."
"Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real" yet "The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action."
"McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance."
"Poignant, heart warming" . . . "Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time" . . . "Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar."

Falling for Her by Patricia McLinn Seasons in a Small Town Series Book Three Josh Kincannon: Principal of the local high school, outgoing, divorced, raising his three kids on his own. Happy in his small town of Drago, Illinois. Vanessa Irish: CFO of Zeke-Tech, prefers being alone, single with no plans of changing that state. Blunt, very blunt. Works in her office in Virginia and that's pretty much her life. Until Zeke has her coming to Drago to help set up the computer lab. I'm loving this series and it continues with this book. Josh and Vanessa are great characters. Vanessa has a very unique way about her that sets her apart from other characters. And Josh's three kids are awesome too. They all come alive and add to the story. **Sexual Content
