When an in-a-rut librarian takes a small step toward adventure, it triggers an avalanche of risks and changes in this romantic comedy by debut author Kathy Carmichael. CHASING CHARLIE, an April 2001 hardcover release from Avalon Books, is populated with charming characters and snappy dialogue, reminiscent of The Runaway Bride.

When Davis Murphy, cowboy wannabe and one of Dallas' most eligible bachelors, asks Charlie Nelson to pretend to be his fiancée, her reaction is to run far and fast, in this romantic comedy by debut author, Kathy Carmichael.

Charlie, raised by two older, very protective, brothers on a South Texas cattle ranch, wants only one thing: to avoid thrill-seeking cowboys. She clings to the security of her safe and steady job as a librarian.

Davis needs a fiancée so his widowed mother will marry her gentleman friend whose company is transferring him to Japan. She has refused to wed until Davis is settled.

Charlie is the perfect answer if only she'll go along with the scheme. Can he talk her into becoming his temporary fiancée? And once he does, can he convince her to become his forever wife?


Excerpt

It was love at first sight. Charlotte Nelson rocked back on her heels, closed her eyes a moment and then reopened them. There was no doubt about it. She'd fallen in love -- with a dress.
"How'd you like to try that on for size?" asked the sales clerk, stepping up behind her.
"I'm just looking." Charlie sighed, casting one last longing look at the clingy red dress before replacing it on the rack.
The girl emitted a low sigh. "Me, too."
"Oh, I don't know. I've never tried anything like that before." If she wore it, what would the neighbors think? But the feeling the dress evoked was palpable. Maybe the clerk had a point. "Does it come in black?"
"The hat?"
What hat? Charlie gave the clerk a double-take.
"I wouldn't change a thing." The clerk was positively drooling and her eyes were trained on . . . something other than the dress. Or rather someone.
Oh, no. Not the Rhinestone Cowboy.
Charlie recognized him immediately, the Rhinestone Cowboy who frequented her library research department. He'd soaked up more books on cowboys and ranching than anyone she'd ever met. "I don't do cowboys."
