Thirty-year-old Zoe Costas knows she probably needs to settle down.  Having recently retired from the Secret Service, she is in the process of setting up her own security business, and helping her eccentric, Greek family finalize the adoption of unwanted, foster-child Samantha.  When a handsome stranger shows up unexpectedly at Sam's birthday party, she assumes that he is another social worker checking up on the family home.

Ryan Baldwin has spent years trying to find his runaway sister, Faith.  She'd left home when he was just thirteen, strung out of her mind on drugs.  His family had promptly disowned her.  But the day Ryan turned eighteen, he began looking for her, and finally he has come to the end of his search.  Unfortunately, his sister had died six years earlier, but she left behind a daughter; his niece.  And he has tracked her to her latest foster home in New Jersey.  Ryan will rescue her and take her back to Boston. The fact that free-spirited, lovely Zoe immediately assumes he is a social worker niggles his conscience, but also plays easily into his plans.


It doesn't take Zoe long to realize she's been taken.  But for some reason, she decides to go along with Ryan's fake identity so he can get to know his niece, and give her time to figure out how she is going to break this unexpected news to her parents.  What she doesn't bargain on is her attraction to the stuffy, strait-laced lawyer from Boston.


SUMMER LOVIN', by NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author Carly Phillips, is just in time for some great summer reading.  In true Phillips fashion, this delightful author has written a story that will draw you in immediately.  It is fun, sassy, and quick-paced, and will definitely leave you in a good mood after you've turned the last page.
