DANCING ON THE DRIVE
The Bachelor Next Door, book two
It all started with an inheritance, a reluctant homecoming, and an old flame…
Just when advertising executive Delaney McBride is about to hit bottom, she learns she’s been left an inheritance – with a catch. She has to return to her hometown and coordinate the remaining weddings for her late aunt’s wedding planning business. Seriously? To Delaney, true love only exists in fairytales.
Besides, the last thing she needs is to see Mike Connery again. No doubt he’s even better looking than the last time she saw him, but even worse, now he’s a successful attorney and executor of the will. Which means there will be no escaping the humiliating memories of how Delaney chased after him years ago – and he turned her down.
Luckily, Mike is even more cynical about relationships than Delaney. But as the two reluctantly work together to create happily-ever-after for the brides of Birch Harbor, can they finally get their own happy ending?
DANCING ON THE DRIVE is the second book in THE BACHELOR NEXT DOOR series – fast-paced contemporary romances with sparkling dialogue and heroes to die for.
A previous version of this novel was published under the title, The Wedding Heiress.
