He had a damn good reason to stay away from her… and now a million reasons to come back…
Dean Kettering: The quintessential lone wolf, he’s led a solitary existence on his sailboat since leaving the Army. Then one simple act puts this antisocial bad boy in the middle of a media frenzy, earning him the title of “hero” along with an unexpected windfall of a million dollars. He doesn’t want the money—doesn’t feel he deserves it—but he knows someone who does....
Laura Sweeney: Dean’s polar opposite, devoted to home and hearth, she’s the woman he secretly longed for even after she married his best friend… the friend who made Dean promise to take care of her as he lay dying. But when he finally sought her out, their long-simmering passion flared into irresistible, white-hot need.
Dean walked out of Laura’s life that night, only to return years later with a million dollars he insists she must take. But if she does, she’ll have to let him back in… and tell him the truth about her little girl’s father.
My Best Friend’s Girl, Book 3 of the North Moon Bay series, is a secret baby contemporary romance that can be read on its own or as part of the series. It’s a full-length novel—no cliffhanger!
“A charming story with touching scenes, steady characters and an emotional conflict.” RT BookReviews
“It’s hard to not laugh when two people fight over not keeping a million dollars! Yet the tension of old love and the sparkle of new attraction weave an enrapturing tale that romance lovers will find quite enduring. A perfect afternoon’s pleasure read, My Best Friend’s Girl also captures a five-year-old’s voice and wisdom perfectly, making this fun tale even more delightful. Highly recommended.” Reader Review
