Book Description

In the second book of The Fancy Lives of the Lear Sisters trilogy, a former beauty queen’s perfect life comes crashing down…but unexpected love may lift her right back up.

Former Miss Texas Rebecca Lear knows a thing or two about looking perfect—even when her life is anything but. When her no-good husband leaves her for another woman, the fairy-tale illusion shatters. Heartbroken, Rebecca heads to Austin to pick up the pieces of her life, volunteering for a friend’s political campaign in a desperate attempt to start anew. When she clashes with a gorgeous, hot-shot lawyer over campaign strategies, Rebecca realizes she’s in way over her head. And maybe that’s a good thing…

Matt Parrish is the toughest litigator in Texas—and a notorious heartbreaker. When he agrees to help out with his former fraternity brother’s campaign, he never imagined he’d be stuck working with an ex-beauty queen. There’s no denying she’s beautiful…and sweet and funny and smarter than anyone gives her credit for. But men like Matt don’t fall in love with women like Rebecca, no matter how hot the flames of passion burn between them…

    5.0 out of 5 stars A winner! 4 Feb. 2004
    By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Rebecca Lear had always been pretty, popular, and part of the wealthy Lear family. She had even been Miss Texas years ago. Now she was recently divorced, had a five-year-old son, Grayson, and trying to prove that she was NOT worthless, at least to herself. She decided to start with something small like a job, any job. But no one would hire her for anything! Rebecca had never been taken seriously in her whole life. She was sick of it! So when Senator Tom Masters asked her to join his campaign team, she was thrilled.
    Lawyer Matt Parrish had been helping Tom campaign for lieutenant govenor. Tom even had thoughts about running for District Attorney sometime in the future, himself. Matt had been shocked when Tom made Rebecca his campaign strategist. She knew nothing about politics or the needs of Texas. In fact, from the moment Rebecca had called him cheap, she had managed to turn his life upside down and inside out.
    ***** Author Julia London has another winner here! Each character has a personality all their own. The story flows smoothly and a touch of humor keeps everything going at the perfect pace. An awesome story by one of today's most talented authors! Brava! *****

    I could only give it three has it had little depth. However, it was a feel good book, where the 'little woman' finds herself and a second love. It was easy to read and headed the way one would expect.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great story. 10 Nov. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was a little hesitant about this book, after all it was a storyline that has been done so many times. Still i went ahead with it and I'm so glad i did. It was a well written book and just laid back and easy to read. I got deeply invested in the characters. They were funny, witty and i just loved Rebecca's determination, Matt's sexiness and Grayson's cuteness. A true winner for me.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great little read 5 Jan. 2015
    By Rehana

    I have only read Julia London's historical novels before so I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was everything I had hoped for with humour and of course great romance. Like most romance novels the story is predictable but it is the treatment thAt counts.
