Guess what day it is? Why, it's Wednesday. Hump Day, of course. It's also July 1st--release day for my Harlequin Heartwarming title, Man of the Family!
Griffin Lattimore is a single dad with an anxious small son and rebellious teenage daughter. Believe me, there's plenty of drama in their Florida apartment right now. But he’ll do anything to protect his kids from further hurt. If only Griffin, a former TV news anchor, could find his long-missing wife...for reasons of his own.
Assistant DA Sunny Donovan is newly divorced and her career isn’t in great shape either. Back home in Florida to regroup after losing a high-profile case in NY, she meets Griffin under less than ideal circumstances. And they’re not looking for love.
But Fate has its own plans for Sunny and Griffin. I hope you enjoy their journey from heartache to happiness.
Here's a brief excerpt with them at the barbeque seen on the cover…
Before he could tell himself not to, Griffin stopped her.
“Thanks,” he said. “I’m glad Amanda apologized. You were right. She did take your watch.”
Sunny half smiled. “And you didn’t let her get away with it after all.”
He shouldn’t care that she sounded proud of him. He shouldn’t be staring at her mouth. “So what am I missing?” he asked, because nothing about his daughter was simple these days. “Did she even sound sincere?”
“She…tried.” Sunny hesitated. “But you didn’t welcome my interference before, and I doubt you’ve changed your mind. I’m out of the advice-giving business.”
Ouch. Forcing his gaze away from her, he noticed the growing darkness. The sun had slipped lower in the sky and the colors had bled into a deeper burgundy. “I’m impressed, Counselor. Didn’t imagine you’d give up that easily.”
“I have my moments.”
