Book #1 in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Chase’s dazzling new series:
Meet The Shaughnessy Brothers
Can’t make time for love?
The Shaughnessy brothers have spent the years since their mother’s untimely death taking care of each other and trying to make their father proud. Oldest son Aidan is hard-working, handsome, successful—and still single. Sure, he’d like to have his own family someday, but who has the time?
She’ll show him how to find it
Zoe Dalton, a stunning designer Aidan meets on one of his construction jobs, has the beauty and heart to make Aidan realize how much he could be missing. But it’s not easy to break down walls you’ve spent years building up. Now there’s a major storm bearing down on the North Carolina coast, and it could be catalyst enough to force Aidan and Zoe into some major decisions of the heart.

Chase (the Montgomery Brothers series) grabs readers by the heartstrings and reels them right into the antics of the lively Shaughnessy family: a father, five sons, one daughter, and their lingering memories of a mother who was killed in a car accident. Aiden, the eldest child, has always been bold, hardworking, and extremely protective of his family. He keeps all nonrelatives at bay until he meets Zoe Dalton, a fiery decorator who's just as brazen as he is and has suffered just as much loss. When a hurricane crashes into their North Carolina coastal town and leaves them stranded together in a small apartment, Zoe and Aiden end up sharing more than flashlights and food. But after the storm clears and they are forced to rejoin the rest of the world, Aiden can't deal with the changes to his orderly life and pushes Zoe away, even though she's the only woman who's ever been able to impress him both in and out of the bedroom. Chase excels at giving even the most minor character a unique voice, and she makes Zoe and Aiden work hard for their happy ending. Readers weary of shoehorned-in suspense plots will find this novel gratifying and realistic; it's an uncluttered, perfectly paced look at two individuals trying to move forward after tragedy.
