)-- Book an Extended Stay in a World of Passion with Hotel Romance.
Strong, hard-working, and devastatingly handsome are three traits the Marshall brothers have in spades. But the similarities stop there. In Hotel Romance, a new novel by Sandie Thomas, readers delve into the lives of these three men and their tough yet tenderhearted mother. As they endure grief and find true love, their dynamic personalities come to light, and so does the fierce family loyalty they share.
Rafe Marshall, the oldest, is recovering from a loveless marriage to a senator’s daughter. Her suicide leaves him the stunned single parent of 5-year-old Natalie, who is the center of Rafe’s universe. Scarred by this tragedy, Rafe focuses on work and family, throwing himself into the successful hotel construction business he built with his two brothers. But plans change when he meets beautiful, savvy Jane Crenshaw, a brilliant lawyer. Jane not only shows Rafe a love he’s never known, she also uses her professional prowess to help him win the battle for his daughter.
The middle Marshall, Dale, is a force to be reckoned with. Built like a tank, his demeanor is equally solid and almost impenetrable—until he meets Molly Shannon. Suddenly, his interest in the family business takes a back seat, and all he wants to do is spend every moment with Molly at his sprawling Texas ranch. This makes his younger brother bristle, and family ties are stretched to the breaking point.
Youngest brother Zane is the family wild card. A real ladies’ man, Zane unabashedly lures women with his charm, and then leaves each one for the next passionate fling. But CJ Sullivan proves to be his ultimate challenge. Her confidence catches his attention, her character fascinates him, and when she brushes off his advances he knows he has to have her; not as another notch on the bedpost but as a partner with whom he can share his life.
At the center of the Marshall clan, Oma guides her sons through love and loss with a firm hand. She is the reason her boys field life’s curve balls with strength and grace, and her presence is a quiet force throughout the tale.
Hotel Romance invites mature readers, both women and men, into a world where passion and tenderness reign, and where family is worth more than a kingdom of riches. Thomas says. “Hotel Romance leaves you with a good feeling about relationships. In today’s world, that isn’t an easy task.”
