Port Provident: Hurricane Hope - Book 3
HE CAME TO REPAIR DAMAGED HOUSES. SHE CAME TO REPAIR HER DAMAGED HEART...
Her Royal Highness Princess Anneliese de Cotriaro is trying to find her place in the world--and in the kingdom of San Petro, a small paradise off the coast of Central America. She believes there is more to her life than simply being "the spare" to the crown's heir and having her every move followed by paparazzi after a broken engagement. Because Port Provident, Texas, is a sister city to San Petro's capital city of Rosada, when Princess Anneliese sees the images of destruction from Hurricane Hope in the news, she knows this is the opportunity she's been praying for to show she's a woman of substance.
Matt McGregor is used to disasters. Working with Helping Hands Homes, he's returned to his hometown after the hurricane with an ambitious goal to renovate 100 damaged homes by Christmas. When the national office tells him they've been able to score a PR opportunity with the visiting princess of San Petro to work on one of the houses and help raise the funds they'll need to achieve their goals, Matt sees imminent disaster. Building a house is hard work and he needs committed volunteers--not a prissy princess who is sure to be afraid to get her hands dirty.
Can a princess in search of a mission make a difference in the world of a blue-collar man who can't afford distractions to his work?
His Texas Princess
Port Provident: Hurricane Hope - Book 4
SHE WAS LOSING FAITH...UNTIL HE BELIEVED IN HER
For four generations, Bretton's on the Boardwalk, a store dedicated to Christmas, has greeted tourists who come to Port Provident, but after Hurricane Hope tears through town, Jessica Bretton is left with a pile of bills to pay and no tourists visiting her store. She doesn't want to fail her family by closing the doors to the store, but she can't hold on much longer.
As Director of the Park Board of Port Provident, Bradley Thorpe is responsible for getting tourists to Provident Island. It's been almost three months since Hurricane Hope tore through the island, and while there's much work to be done, people are ready to get back to normal. The local economy is strained and it looks like the Christmas season is going to be an unhappy holiday.
When Jessica suggests reviving a Christmas celebration from Port Provident's history books, Bradley is unconvinced. His role is to drive the local economy, not plan parties. Could a woman who celebrates Christmas all year long change the heart of a man who's more interested in the bottom line than a season of hope? And could a little Christmas cheer be just what Port Provident needs to rebuild?
