ABOUT THE BOOK:
New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart returns to the cherished Maryland shores of St. Dennis with THE CHESAPEAKE BRIDE (Pocket Books; ; $7.99), the charming story of a jaded architect who meets the one man who could finally melt her heart—if she’s willing to let him in.
Cassidy Logan has sworn off good-looking adventurers, having just divorced the one she’d married. Now working with her father’s construction company to build ecologically friendly, historically accurate homes on the Chesapeake Bay, she’s designing them for Cannonball Island. Knowing there’s been no new construction on the island in almost one hundred years, Cass is sensitive to the heritage and history of the sparsely populated island, and has come up with plans so perfect she’s determined to buy one for herself to live in. Even the fact that Owen Parker—whom she dismisses as a lightweight and a player— seems to be everywhere she goes isn’t enough to deter her from building her dream house.
Owen is and always has been sinfully handsome and wickedly clever, a magnet for mischief as well as the girls in St. Dennis. He’s also a rolling stone, going and doing whatever appeals to him, from flying a mail plane in Alaska to working on a cattle ranch in Australia and a shrimp boat in Louisiana, to surfing and diving in Costa Rica. When an old friend offers him a job salvaging a sunken ship in the Chesapeake, Owen gladly accepts. Something’s been telling him it’s about time to head home to Cannonball Island, and a job is as good an excuse as any. He’s totally smitten with the pretty architect, but it seems he’s finally met a woman who’s immune to his charms. Sooner or later, Owen will have to face the reason why he always runs, because this time, leaving just might be harder than staying.
Mariah Stewart has released another fantastic book in The Chesapeake Diaries series. She released The Chesapeake Bride, which will the reader to read more about Owen falling in love than ever.
The reader has met Owen before in a previous book. But they get to know more about Owen now. He has always been traveling country to country whenever he finds a new challenge. However, things are changing for him because he is finding his life lonely and unsettling that he returns back home to find the answers. While he is trying to figure out his life, he also meets the beautiful yet brilliant, Cassidy.
Cassidy is very brilliant in her career that she takes challenge head-on. But lately, she been finding her life unbalance because she wants to settle down and form a family. But it is going to be a challenge because she has a hard trouble in finding the right guys since she typically attracts the ones who usually leave country to country.
