Falling for Her
Autumn in a Small Town
Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.
After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech’s CFO:
Conscientious? Oh, yeah.
Agreeable? Not so much.
Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I’m-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious.
And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life with his three kids, scrape against his job as high school principal and — oh, yes — definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Writing a book is always an education – a different education with each book. What’s striking about Falling for Her is how the education continued after publication.
The book was originally titled Principal of Love, which tickled my smart-aleck humor. I realized fairly soon that other people didn’t agree, especially those who emailed me that there was a typo in the title. Having had my fun with the title, I changed it to Falling for Her, which I love, and which celebrates Vanessa, as well as Josh.
Josh brought me another bit of education, when I received an email from a real-life Josh Kincannon. I assured him that my Josh was a great guy who only added luster to the name.
I hope you’ve enjoy Vanessa and Josh’s story, and that you might consider writing a review sharing your reactions with other readers . . . spreading the education a little wider. <wg>
“Vanessa is a wounded soul, and Josh draws her out with (mostly) patience and humor. What I especially like is that Vanessa also helps Josh. I’ll say it again: A lovely romance.”
