Book Two: Chasing Love
When Claire Mather agrees to be her best friend Elle’s bridesmaid, she inadvertently agrees to walk down the aisle with Elle’s fiancé’s brother, Jonathan Charmant. Jonathan doesn’t believe in love, and finds all the comfort and fulfillment he needs in the newest technology and in the many women who throw themselves at him. But once Claire and Jon meet at the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, all the pre-conceived ideas they had fly out the window. Jon cannot understand why Claire wants nothing to do with him, and he goes on a mission to win her affections enough to bed her, but when the challenge proves too much, and growing feelings start to complicate his plan, Jon doesn’t know if his way of life is really as fulfilling any longer. While Claire battles the desire to learn from her mistake in the past when it comes to Mr. Charmant, and not give him the option of breaking her heart again, Claire finds the many masks he wears unappealing, and Jon, in a bid to change her opinion of him, lets the mask slip and offers her the chance to view the man he keeps from the world. Claire still remains distrustful, but will the real Jon, not the playboy or the technology guru, break through her icy walls enough that they both may find something they never quite expected?
