Bestselling author Debbie Macomber presents repackaged Harlequin romances Ready for Romance and Ready for Marriage under a new title, Ready for Love. Faithful fans and readers just now discovering Macomber will appreciate having both of those sexy Dryden brothers between the covers--of a single volume, that is. Senior partners of one of Boston's most prestigious law firms, high-powered attorneys Damian and Evan Dryden are sought-after bachelors. But for all their success, neither Damian nor Evan has ever been lucky in love. Damian's story, Ready for Romance, brings once-gangly girl-next-door Jessica Kellerman back into Damian's life. The pubescent girl had a huge crush on his younger brother, Evan, at the time Damian caught an embarrassed Jessica pressing ruby-red lip prints on all the mirrors in Evan's car. When newly-graduated Jessica applies for a job at Damian and Evan's law firm, Damian finds little evidence of the scrawny, awkward teenager he knew so long ago in the confident woman seated before him. Jessica may be the answer to Damian's prayers for Evan to recuperate from a love affair gone bad. But what about Damian's increasingly steamy dreams featuring the alluring Jessica? Attorney Damian presses his case--and everything else--to convince Jessica that he is the man for her in this delightful tale.
In Ready for Marriage, Evan Dryden meets then loses the girl of his dreams. Now, three years later, ex-fiancée Mary Jo Summerhill is in his office asking for Evan's help. Evan coerces Mary Jo into working for him while his secretary takes an extended vacation in exchange for his handling of her parents' legal problems. Mary Jo loved Evan enough to leave him once before, but is she strong enough to do it again? Even knowing Evan and his powerful family are way out of her league, Mary Jo's conviction to do what's best for Evan is sorely tested during their daily interaction. Evan is equally determined not to lose Mary Jo a second time. Will this couple ever be Ready for Marriage? Read it and find out! --Alison TrinkleAbout the Author:
