Secondhand Romance by RoseAnn DeFranco
Book 2 of the Brothers Of Audubon Springs Series

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy

Annie O’Malley’s dream of owning a secondhand bookstore in tight-knit Audubon Springs is coming true. Still reeling from her parents’ sudden deaths, she believes that signs or messages can be found within the pages of books. She loves her job and has made plenty of friends but longs for the acceptance only love and a family can provide.

Tony Iuliano is there to fix the wiring in her shop. He doesn’t believe in fate, magic, or the power of a good book. All this combined with his sexy-as-sin presence and all-knowing attitude infuriates Annie. The quirky bookworm intrigues him enough to accept her bet to read a book from her shop. When he discovers a stack of fifty-year-old love letters in the book, he wants to leave the past alone, but seeing it as a sign, Annie challenges him to read the letters and search for the long-lost lovers or lose the bet.

While shaking the dust off several ill-fated romances and fighting their attraction at every turn, the pair soon become the town gossip daily special. If they can stop arguing long enough, they may just discover this particular sign was meant for them all along.

“I thought you were the best electrician in town and this would only take one day?” Annie cocked her head to one side, eyebrows raised.

“Your wires are fairly complicated, which comes as absolutely no surprise. I need a few parts.” The damn woman drove him nuts.

With her eyes fixed on his she deliberately pulled the string from the stack of old letters in her hand.

“What are you doing?” He reached across the counter, but Annie hastily moved the letters behind her back. “Hey! According to you and fate, I’m supposed to read those.”

“You are, but seeing as you’re too chicken, I’m going to have to.”

“It has nothing to do with being chicken. It’s a matter of privacy and respect, something you’d understand if you grew up in this town.”

“Tomato, tom-ah-to.” She shrugged.

Tony charged behind the counter and lunged for the documents. She jumped out of his reach and turned to run, but he wrapped an arm around her tiny waist and pulled her back. When she tried to wriggle free, he turned her until she was pinned against the wall. With his body hovering dangerously close to hers, he inhaled the scent of her hair – oranges and sunshine – and when she emitted a slight gasp, his groin tightened.


Return To Audubon Springs by RoseAnn DeFranco
Book 1 of the Brothers Of Audubon Springs Series

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy

When Emma Grant returns to her family's Audubon Springs beach house to fulfill the stipulations of her father's will, she has every intention of forcing her former lover out of the house for good. She's never fit into her wealthy family and would prefer avoiding her past, but with her brother threatening to reveal her young daughter, she has no choice.

Rafe Iuliano has other plans. The wealthy Grants tried to bribe him out of Emma's life years ago, but he's determined to prove once and for all that a master carpenter is worthy of Emma and the house.

Their ridiculous and steamy battle for the house reignites the love and passion that bloomed between them years ago. But when Rafe discovers she's kept their daughter a secret for two years, can he overcome anger and pride to claim his family and the love of his life, or will the deception drive a final wedge between them?

RoseAnn DeFranco grew up in upstate NY with her nose in a book and a song in her heart. Following the pursuit of a musical theatre career in NYC, she turned her creative energy to writing funny, steamy romance with heart. A NJ shore transplant, she enjoys time spent at the beach with her family and would love to one day live in a quaint shore town like the fictional town from her BROTHERS OF AUDUBON SPRINGS series.
