Overview

I'll Just Hold My Breath, Fancy Pants. . .

Oh no. This is so not happening. Her whole life Kat Taylor has been reaching for the brass ring and coming away with nothing but sore knuckles. Not this time. Her flighty Aunt Lila gave her a charming house on Martha's Vineyard for the summer, and now some arrogant, amused, and, okay, surprisingly hunky, British author named Lawrence Kendall says he has a claim to the same cottage! If he thinks that just because he's suave and good-looking and. . .and. . .has that hairy chest and great accent that he can woo her into leaving, well, he can die trying. . .

Fine, You Bloody Well Do That, Irrational Woman. . .

Kat Taylor may be strange--and rather bewitching--in her foot-stamping protestations, but she is not getting the house. It was granted to Lawrence first and that is that. So. There we are. Very sorry, nice to meet you, have a lovely summer--somewhere else. The last thing Lawrence needs to add to his writer's block is some woman skulking about the house, humming, looking distractingly attractive. Bloody hell. She's not budging. Right. Perhaps the only thing to do is make a temporary peace and ignore each other. . .for two months. Right. Should be no trouble at all. . .

Jane Blackwood began her career as a journalist, a line of work which proved life doesn't always have a happy ending. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, Jane, after twelve years working as a reporter, switched careers and now lives in a world where happy endings are not only possible, they are mandatory. It's a much nicer place to be. Jane lives in New England with her husband, three children and their much-loved one-eyed cat. Jane loves to hear from readers.

Kat Taylor needs time to heal from the collapse of her business and the dumping by her fiancé Brian. Her Aunt Lila, mourning her recent loss of her kind spouse Carl, allows her to use her summer cottage on Martha¿s Vineyard.-------------------- British author Lawrence Kendall needs time away from everyone so that he can overcome writer¿s block and finish his latest book on time. His father¿s late friend Carl offered Larry use of his summer cottage at Martha¿s Vineyard.------------------- When Kat and Lawrence meet at the same summer house, both claims first use and want the other to leave to obtain privacy, but they finally compromise. They agree to an arrangement to allow both plenty of space. However when Brian arrives to persuade Kat he wants to marry her, she turns instead to her housemate Lawrence, who finds his writing works when he knows Kat is nearby, but not too close as he wants her.---------------- Contemporary romance readers will enjoy this appealing tale due to the chemistry between the lead pair from the start. When Brian arrives, Larry and Kat imply much more than mistaken roommates as they early on to readers seem to belong together. Sub-genre fan enjoy this wonderful tale of love showing up when it is least expected.------------ Harriet Klausner
