Free sample

An award-winning contemporary romance about love, betrayal and forgiveness. 

Curt and Ellie fell in love as college students, in a grungy apartment on Hope Street. When Curt asked Ellie to marry him, he promised her that as long as they were together, they would always live on a metaphorical “Hope Street.” And for many years, as they established a home and their careers and welcomed two daughters and a son into their lives, they did dwell in their own love-filled neighborhood of hope. 

Then a tragedy shattered their family. Anguish drove Ellie into a world of darkness. Cut off from his wife, Curt found a way to heal without her. Exiled from Hope Street, they decide to end a marriage that is already dead. 

Unaware of their parents’ plans for divorce, their children spring a surprise birthday party on Ellie, create a video of her life, and arrange for a romantic night for their parents at a charming country inn. As Curt and Ellie venture into that night together, they are forced to reconsider everything that once was so right between them, and everything that has gone so wrong. Is it possible that their love still exists? Can they ever forgive each other? Is it possible to return to Hope Street?

 Book Three of the Daddy School series, originally published in 1998. Dennis Murphy’s rambunctious seven-year-old twins swear he’s the best lawyer in Arlington, Connecticut. They don’t make his job easy, however. When the nanny he hires to watch the twins walks out on them one afternoon while Dennis is meeting with the opposing attorney concerning a libel case, Dennis is forced to bring his work home with him.

 

Gail Saunders is a lawyer in the public defender’s office. When her former client, a Russian immigrant who’s had a few scrapes with the law in the past, implores her to sue the city’s newspaper for libel after his name appears in a front page article in connection with a series of thefts, she agrees to represent him, even if it means going up against Murphy and his prestigious, wealthy law firm, and even if it means she has to deal with his wild children once their nanny goes AWOL. Gail isn’t the sort to become all warm and fuzzy around children—especially imps like Sean and Erin Murphy. She’s missing the maternal gene, and the romantic gene as well. Just because Murphy is smart and funny and sexy as hell doesn’t mean she’s going to fall for him. She knows his seductive charms are merely tactics in his effort to win the libel suit.

 

Being the sister of one of the founders of the Daddy School, Gail believes Murphy could use a few lessons in how to be a better father. But she’s got a few things to learn, too, and Dennis Murphy might just be the man to teach her.
