Pearl Island Series Boxed Set: Three Full-Length Contemporary Romance Novels
Three heartwarming, fun, and sexy romances set in the colorful world of Galveston Island, Texas. The St. Claire siblings find themselves on a collision course with love when they set their sights on restoring a dilapidated mansion built by their notorious ancestor and turning it into a bed and breakfast.
Book One: Falling for You
When opposites attract, passions ignite.
Impetuous Aurora St. Claire, the youngest of the three siblings, seeks help from staid and steady Oliver Chancellor for securing a business loan and she won't take no for an answer. In the midst of convincing the hesitant blue blood to take a chance on her dream, Aurora awakes his hidden streak of red-hot passion. Before they know it, the mismatched pair are all tangled up in a reckless desire and headed for trouble—trouble in the name of love.
Book Two: Lead Me On
Inside every good girl is a naughty woman dying to get out.
Frustrated author Scott Lawrence is hoping to get lucky in more ways than one when he checks into the Pearl Island Inn. A little fun in the sun with a beautiful woman may be just the inspiration he needs to cure his writer's block. No fuss. No commitment. But a "good girl" like Allison St. Claire? No way! Allison, however, is dealing with a frustration of her own: having men treat her like a little sister. When she makes her move, every bachelor bone in Scott's body tells him to swim for safety. But stronger instincts prevail, and the heat between them climbs higher than the temperature on the Texas Coast.

When an irresistible man meets an independent woman, the chase is on!
Big brother, Adrian St. Claire, the sexy chef at the Pearl Island Inn has never had a woman tell him no–until his family needs help searching for a legendary heirloom on the sunken ship in the island's cove. To find the treasure they need the help of a woman whose family history is as linked as theirs to the island's romantic past. Jackie Taylor, however, is far more interested in running her cruise ship along the Texas coast than chasing tales of lost booty. Enticed by Jackie's resistance, Adrian soon has something more than treasure hunts and casual flirtation in mind...and he's not a man who takes no for an answer.
