Celebrating 50 Books--Day 24

Today's book is a very special one. Discovering Dani was the first book I ever wrote--not my first published--but the first book I ever completed. I wrote it back in 1995 and it was published a decade later after many, many, many rewrites. It's not as spicy as my other books, but it's a wonderful love story and I love it.

Welcome to Jamesville!


Dani O’Rourke has had the responsibility of raising her two brothers, Patrick and Shamus, since the death of their parents. As sole owner and operator of O’Rourke Cleaning Services, she is no stranger too hard work, but she is a beginner when it comes to men.

Burke is a very rich and successful businessman whose brush with death has made him question his priorities. He’s traveled to Jamesville for peace and quiet while he plans the rest of his life.

Their lives collide when Burke accuses her of breaking into his cabin to steal from him. Their attraction to each other is immediate, and after a series of misunderstandings he finds himself caught up in the lives of Dani and her brothers.

But can this gentle, giving woman get a man as hard and cynical as Burke to believe in the power of love? Or will Burke leave town without ever discovering the wonders of life with Dani?
