So what if Laurel Morgan hadn’t had a date since the senior prom? If all it would take to convince her teenage sister to consider college was to go on a few dates and have some fun, it was a bet she could beat. And before she could change her mind, sexy forest ranger Michael Walker agreed to play the part of her ardent admirer!
Laurel never expected Michael’s acting abilities to be quite so convincing. Whenever her sister was watching, Laurel found herself wrapped in a heady embrace with a passionate kiss on the way. Her captivating cohort promised a performance that would win her the wager, but when the curtain closed, would she lose the only man she would ever love?
This updated and expanded verion of Mountain Laurel is the first title from Donna Clayton’s backlist to be made available. More of her romance novels will be coming soon! She also writes romantic comedies under her real name, Donna Fasano.
From the reviewers:
The perfect, page-turning romance to read at the beach, or the mountain cabin, or in my case in a hammock!
I had the pleasure of reading this and I thought it was great, the characters are well developed, and the story has lots of real to life moments the characters were
funny,weird with hang-ups and insecurities just like any one of us.
I loved this book. I read constantly, and I first read the book in print years ago. I’ve searched for it because I like to reread favorites. This is the kind of story that pulls you in immediately because the characters are so likeable. I enjoyed the mountain setting and the places that made me laugh. Ms Clayton has a real talent for bringing memories of young love and romance back in a clean and heartwarming way.
The characters in this book seemed so real that I found myself wanting to get to know them better!
Donna Fasano (Donna Clayton), author of 32 romance novels, is a best-selling, award-winning writer whose books have sold over 3.5 million copies world wide.
Growing up the third child of five–yes, smack dab in the middle and the only girl to boot–Donna Fasano had no idea she would one day be a published author. Her story-telling talents came to light when she conjured lively and elaborate tales of pure blarney (yes, she has a bit of Irish in her blood) for, first, her youngest brother, and years later, her children.
Donna sold her first manuscript in 1989, and since then has become a bestselling, award-winning author of over thirty novels and four audio books. She writes under her own name, Donna Fasano, as well as under the pen name Donna Clayton and is known for her “smooth, polished” writing style and for creating “strong, complex” characters. Reviewers have described her stories as “poignant,” “richly textured,” “enticing,” and “absorbing.” The writing process can be extremely engrossing for Donna, so much so that she’s missed appointments with dentists and doctors, lunches with friends and family, and once she even forgot her carpool run. Luckily, the people in her life make allowances for this quirk.
Still happily married to her high school sweetheart, she is the mother of two grown sons who have flown the coop. She and her husband share their home with Jake, a black and white, couch-potato border collie, and Roo, a spotted red and cream Australian cattle dog that looks (and acts) like a wild dingo. Donna’s spare time is spent reading, walking the countryside and beach, or trying out new recipes from one of the many cookbooks she has collected over the years. Oh, and one night a week she and her hubby nab some alone time from their busy schedules, enjoying a nice glass of wine and a video–preferably a romantic comedy. Donna also volunteers loads of hours to her small church.
