Box set including all five titles in Leigh Michaels’ McKenna Family series. Each of the McKennas — four brothers and a sister from a close-knit family of Irish descent — has his or her own book, originally published by Harlequin Romance. Includes
A Matter of Principal: Camryn Hastings’ bed-and-breakfast is supporting her and her little daughter, Susan, until a problem with the mortgage brings banker Patrick McKenna into their lives with the threat to destroy everything Camryn has so patiently built. Unless Camryn can convince Patrick to help her find new financing, she’ll be ruined – but as she gets to know Patrick, Camryn finds that money is the last thing on her mind.
No Place Like Home: Kaye Reardon and Graham Forest make a perfect couple – all they need is the perfect house so they can marry and live happily ever after. But there are no houses which suit both Kaye’s taste and Graham’s list of requirements. Real estate agent Brendan McKenna is no help at all – in fact, instead of finding Kaye the perfect house, he seems to think she should be looking for a different man. And though Kaye knows Graham is the sensible choice, she can’t help wondering if the reason she’s so hard to please has more to do with Brendan than with houses!
Garrett’s Back in Town: When columnist Matt Garrett returns to Lakemont to take over the family newspaper, assistant city editor Anne McKenna is furious. She believes in climbing the corporate ladder on merit, not connections – though she has to admit that cultivating a connection with Garrett might be very interesting, after all.
The Unexpected Landlord: The last thing Clancey Kincade needs as she opens her new toy store is Rowan McKenna: accountant, real estate investor – and her new and accidental landlord. Rowan didn’t intend to buy the building out from under Clancey – he didn’t even know she existed! – but his new and accidental tenant is no more to his liking than he is to hers. Clancey plans to stay, even if she has to hang on by her fingernails – while Rowan’s determined to see her gone. And then the fun begins…
Dating Games: The matchmakers are out in force! Everyone at Nicolet University wants the new financial aid director, Rachel Todd, to be happy at the college – but “happily single” doesn’t meet their definition. Colin McKenna’s entire family has paired off, leaving him as the only exception – and every last one of them seems determined to see him wed. The only thing Rachel and Colin have in common is that they’re targets – so the sensible move seems to be to combine forces. If they pretend to date each other, Rachel declares, they can keep all the matchmakers off their trail. And it works – until the dating game gets all too serious.
