Love is in the Air

The balloon might not be in the air – but perhaps Love is…

Saffy and Libby Verdant have one ambition – to turn Verdant Hall into the hotel of which their late parents had always dreamed. And they’re almost there. The once grand, country house that was more of a ruin than a welcoming retreat when their parents passed away three years ago, is now about to open to guests.

Adam Wynter adores his family, but recovering from a broken heart is hard when you’re surrounded by your brother and sister’s own ‘happy families’. Spending the summer as a member of good friend, Rory Wilde’s hot air balloon team, was the break Adam needed. But now it’s time to go home.

Except Fate has other plans. An unpredicted storm and a fault with Rory’s state of the art equipment sends the hot air balloon crashing into Verdant Hall, damaging a row of Queen Anne chimneys, knocking several tiles from the roof, and finally, decimating the beautiful gardens.

Rory’s insurance will cover the cost of any damage, but what Saffy and Libby need is some immediate help. The least Adam and Rory can do is stay and lend a hand.

Besides, there’s something rather appealing about the Verdant sisters.

But Saffy and Libby aren’t interested in meaningless flings and Adam and Rory soon get more than they bargained for with these two very determined sisters.
