On the coast of Maine, a tiny fishing village is home to people of strong character–and even stronger hearts. There is nothing Misty Harbor's residents like more than celebrating tradition, but sometimes it takes an outsider to help them embrace their future. . .

At the same time his younger brother is preparing for his wedding, Matthew Porter sees his own future come crumbling down. For years, the burly outdoorsman has wanted two things: to have a family and to buy and renovate Misty Harbor's abandoned lighthouse. But now a major hotel chain has made a substantial offer for the lighthouse, and just when things seem bleak, he meets Sierra Morley. The daughter of the hotel chain's owner, Sierra has brought her son on a working vacation to Misty Harbor. The last thing she expects is to fall in love with the sweet Maine town just as it is–and with Matthew Porter. Soulful, gentle, and wonderful with kids, he's the sort of man she's been dreaming of. But once he knows who she is, will he still feel the same way about her? Matthew thought Sierra was just another summer tourist, not a woman who could steal his dream. But now that she's captured his heart, how could he possibly imagine letting her go. . .

Praise for Marcia Evanick's Harbor Nights:

"The magic of everyday pleasures permeates Evanick's contemporary romance. . .Evanick has a gift for finding the humor in small details, and her story of opposites who attract unfolds with endearing warmth."--Publishers Weekly

"Evanick's enchanting series never skimps on humanity, warmth, and romance."--Romantic Times

Douglas Ashton is the cold and unfeeling owner of the gothic Victorian Mansion, Sommersgate House. Julia Fairfax is his stubborn American sister-in-law. After tragedy strikes, Douglas and Julia are forced to live together at Sommersgate and raise their newly orphaned nieces and nephew.

Douglas has no desire to raise his dead sister’s children nor does he want the distraction of the tempting Julia living under his roof. Julia is struggling with grief and trying to make a go in a new country without much help from impossibly handsome but even more impossibly remote Douglas. Not to mention, she has to deal with the active hostility of Douglas’s frosty, Attila-the-Hun-in-a-skirt mother, Monique. 

Douglas decides the best way to give the children what they need, get his mother to behave and give himself what he wants is to marry Julia. When he tells her (yes, tells her) she will be his wife, Julia thinks Douglas is (probably) insane. And anyway, she’s decided if she ever has another husband (since the last one wasn’t so great), he was going to be short, balding, have a paunch and worship the ground she walks on (none of these characteristics define Douglas in the slightest).

One more thing, Sommersgate House is haunted by the ghosts of the man who built the house and the woman who was the love of his life. They both died mysteriously at Sommersgate months after it was finished. When they did, a curse settled on the house making it seem strangely alive. And the only way for the beautiful but frightening house to rid itself of this curse is for its owner to find true love.
