Peek Inside Chasing the Runaway Bride

Piper is woefully inexperienced when it comes to true physical attraction. And working with Cade is torture. The kind that can keep a girl up all night. Things that Cade is more than happy to show her... It’s all fun and games until the truth comes out.

When Marine-turned-rancher, Cade Donovan, inherits his grandfather’s grocery store, he has no choice except to return home. A couple problems with that:

1) The small, gossiping town still doesn’t know the real reason Cade left twelve years ago.

2) For some reason, his grandfather added an unexpected detail to the will – Cade has to share ownership with Piper O’Riley.

The O’Rileys and the Donovans have been at each other’s throats ever since Cade’s grandfather won the store in a poker game. And now Cade has to share his inheritance with the enemy? The gorgeous, tempting, all-grown-up enemy...

After ditching two fiancés at the altar, Piper’s earned a reputation as the town’s runaway bride. Ironically, Piper is woefully inexperienced with men. Her attraction to Cade and working side-by-side with him is torture. By day, it’s non-stop-bickering, but at night, she can’t stop imagining all the delicious things Cade could teach her.

With the family grudge and the secret of why Cade really left town between them, there’s no way they could ever be together. Right?

Each book in the Donovan Brothers series is best read in order:
Book 1: Her Summer with the Marine
Book 2: Chasing the Runaway Bride
Book 3: Head Over Heels for the Boss
