Kris Pearsonabout this book: Out of Bounds is a contemporary romance about a young woman who inherits her grandmother's house, and then finds she has to share it. Not just share the proceeds of the house sale. Share the actual house with the mysterious architect who has become the co-owner. And then, because of a night-time disaster, share the only bed. I did have fun setting this up.
However, there are a couple of serious issues involved. My heroine, Jetta, is petrified of men because of something that happened in her past. This makes sharing a house (and a bed!) intolerable for her. And my hero, Anton, has big things to prove - to his mother, his unknown father, and to Jetta as he starts to fall for her.
Why do they jointly own the house? That's a mystery I don't solve for you until quite late in the book. Of course the possibility they might be closely related leads to problems. (And the 'Out of Bounds' title of the book.)
Is Jetta really out of bounds to Anton? As their attraction for each other grows, can they ignore this possibility? Just when things start to go well, I fling a huge construction problem at Anton. I enjoyed doing some research for this - a friend's architect son came up with some very usable suggestions.
Where did the old suitcase come from? My Mom had one just like it, and when we were children she used to carefully retrieve all the birthday and Christmas wrapping paper and ribbons and store it away in the suitcase to use next time around. Life used to be harder in those days. I just wish I found what Jetta found in her version! Funny how bits of real life end up in fiction. I hope you enjoy it.
