by Kris Francoeur
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Lilly has the perfect life... she's beautiful, successful, and financially independent.
Lilly inherits a mysterious house in Vermont. She sees it as her life only getting better. She hires a hot contractor to fix up and restore the grand old house, then meets a gorgeous Italian professor who showers her with attention. What seems like a perfect life can sometimes be masking dark secrets just beneath the surface and old houses have their memories.
Will Lilly do the reasonable, safe, and expected thing and marry the dashing professor or give in to the raw passion of a future with the one man who has not only discovered the secrets of the house, but also Lilly's?
That was it. I knew at that moment that I wanted this place. I wanted to bring it back to its former glory and live in it. I was going to have a house with a view. I had no idea why it had been given to me, but it had, and I suddenly felt filled with an unexpected sense of hope and happiness. I was going to have a home again.
The key to the front door was in my pocket. James had sent a building inspector to be sure it was structurally sound prior to my arrival. Cautiously, I unlocked the front door and entered the foyer, gazing at the curved staircase that climbed to the second floor.
How could Helen have owned this gem and not done anything with it?
I walked from room to room, each one better than the last.
Finally, I came to a large set of double doors. Opening them, I found what must have been the master bedroom. Well, now it was going to be mine. A wall of windows looked out over the front porch and had a view of the mountains that took my breath away.
I was in love. This house was me, through and through. This was where I was going to live and work for the rest of my life.
Now I needed to figure out how to fix it up.
