Great Lakes Romances

First in the series of Great Lakes Romances® (Set at Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, 1895.) Victoria Whitmore is no shy, retiring miss. When her father runs into money trouble, she heads to Mackinac Island to collect payment due from Grand Hotel for the furniture he’s made. But dealing with Rand Bartlett, the hotel’s manager, poses an unexpected challenge. Can Victoria succeed in finances without losing her heart?

His steady grip caused her heartbeat to quicken. The dancing lights in his hazel eyes seemed to take in everything at once…

She cleared her throat and extracted her hand from his, attempting to regain some distance and to dispel the tingling sensation that had set her nerves dancing…
