Becca and her best friend Donovan have an agreement. If both of them are single when they're forty, they will get married. Which is a good thing, because every guy she has dated has been a disappointment.
Donovan has been in love with Becca since they were teenagers. It began when she bought him a get-well-soon card. But he doesn't know how she feels about him. When they agree to marry if both are single when they're forty, he decides to bide his time. This includes chasing off any men that may interfere with his plan.
Everything changes when Donovan's grandfather leaves him an inheritance with one stipulation: He must be married, or he'll lose the estate.
A lot more is at stake when Donovan proposes. He has to convince Becca his feelings for her are real without telling her he's the reason all the other guys bolted.
This finding love after friendship story is the prequel of the Three Creeks sagas where friends find the happily ever after they were looking for was right in front of them.
About the Author
Twenty years ago, Merri Maywether went on a date with a very sweet man from Montana. Three weeks later they were engaged and they have lived happily ever after.
This is Merri taking over the biography section...When I write my romance novels, the characters are the people that I see on a day to day basis. Up here in what I like to call the far, far north, people work hard, live fiercely, and love knowing that they have a community of people behind them. We support each other through the hardships and celebrate the victories.
The best part...similar to the characters in my stories, at the end of a long day or a rough week we have stories to share for the years to come.
