Congratulations to "Jonetta", the winner of Inara's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!
I've always loved reading series, especially ones featuring families. I think there's something magical about getting to know people over the course of multiple books. And of course the better we know them, the sweeter their happily ever after! The hero of Falling for Mr. Wrong is Ross Bencher, and I've been dying to tell his story ever since we got our first glimpse of him in Rules of Negotiation.
Here's how I introduced brothers Brit (the eldest of the family) and Ross back then:
"His younger brother by only thirteen months, Ross was broader in the chest, more heavily muscled than Brit, and spent time keeping it that way. They shared the same olive skin as their mother and square jaw of their father, but otherwise could not have been more different. In school, Ross enjoyed the rough camaraderie of football, while Brit preferred the solitary competition of track. Ross was a builder, always working with his hands, while Brit spent much of their childhood with his nose buried in a book."
Ross is also a divorced father of three who married young and, if you believe his brother, is a bit of a playboy. But you know how families sometimes misunderstand each other? Well, it turns out that Brit really didn't know his brother very well at all. In the second Bencher family series, we see Ross playing protective older brother to his sister Melissa, who's gotten herself into a fake engagement with her notoriously unemotional boss, Garth Solen. And really, is there anything more endearing than a protective brother, looking after his little sister? I think not!
Finally, in Falling for Mr. Wrong, we get to know the real Ross, a sexy hunk of a guy who is completely dedicated to his kids. Ross has convinced himself that the next woman he dates will be boring and respectable--at least, until he meets Kelsey, my mountain-climbing heroine, who has some secret family baggage of her own.
“So you’re telling me after your divorce you made some kind of inner pledge to only date Donna Reed?” Kelsey asked, incredulous.
“And then you slept with me.”
He grinned, and the mood unexpectedly lightened. “Those were my requirements for dating. Lucky for me, we never went on a date.”
How in the world can I bring together a mountain-climber headed for a dangerous high-altitude ascent, and a dedicated father of three? You'll have to read Falling for Mr. Wrong to find out!
