The Prodigal’s Desire
Available November 2020
A misunderstood millionaire with a playboy reputation.
Henrique Santana left Miami, Florida to prove a point—he is more than a pretty face. As a land developer for Santana Construction Company under the direction of his real-estate mogul father, Henrique will do whatever it takes to transform Historic Newport, Rhode Island’s waterfront into the world’s largest 5-star resort community. But, rumored as a notorious playboy, few believe him capable of securing the necessary zoning for the multi-million-dollar land deal.
An introverted bookseller fearful of losing all she holds dear.
Victoria Hathaway has worked hard to establish a thriving business along Newport Harbor and is proud of her strong roots in “The City by the Sea. She’ll never willingly sign over her inheritance—the multi-generation colonial home that stands in the way of the building of a 5-star resort community. Even if that means she must battle the powerful Santana Construction Company’s continuous attempts to seize her land.
Sexually aroused by the enemy, the stakes are high.
Henry finds it impossible to stay away from the shy but sexy Victoria. Sparks fly when Victoria meets the handsome stranger until she discovers he’s the one who is threatening to take her land. Desperate and determined, Victoria struggles to save her home and her livelihood while ignoring her growing attraction for the man who threatens to destroy it all.
After much consideration, I’ve decided to delay the release of The Prodigal’s Desire until November 2020. Several factors have influenced my decision. Currently, the copyright is still under review and may take longer than I’d originally anticipated. Another major factor was the timeframe in which Henrique and Victoria’s love story takes place. Many of the scenes are centered around holiday events. It’s my belief that, if read during the Christmas season, readers will enjoy a truly magical experience. I hope you’ll continue to look forward to reading The Prodigal’s Desire as much as I enjoyed writing it.💞
