About the Book

Marla Douglas confronts Brad Merlin, a tall, disheveled, man in messy worn jeans, who has come to her UNISEX hair styling shop for an after hours haircut. Brad, a widower and architectural engineer, is in Royal Lake to build a shopping mall. Marla, mother of two, has been wary of men since her husband, Hank, left her three years earlier. Brad and his young daughter become friends with Marla’s family. He and Marla refuse to acknowledge the erotic pull electrifying the air when they are together. Their personal histories, their children and their demanding jobs combine to keep them from succumbing to romance until circumstances push them into each other’s arms. Then they must face and solve a parade of problems before they can unite their two families.
