Dreaming of You

Francis Ray, Author . St. Martin's $6.99 (344p) ISBN 978-0-312-93973-1

The third novel in Ray's Grayson family saga is a warm, winning story of friendship, lust and love—and how the lines between them can blur. Sexy restaurant owner Brandon Grayson is the next child on his mother's matchmaking hit list: she'd like him married off, and quick, just like his two brothers. Determined to thwart her plan and hold on to his freedom, Brandon decides to go celibate, forgoing dating altogether. When a leaky pipe in his apartment must be repaired, he puts up at the hotel run by Faith McBride, one of his oldest friends and the little sister of one of his best buddies. What Brandon doesn't know is that Faith has been in love with him since she was a self-conscious teen, and she's got a plan to snare him. Of course, between Faith's kindness and curves, Brandon begins rethinking his friendship, and his vow of abstinence. The pair's cat-and-mouse game is suspenseful and fun, and even though Ray's writing doesn't dazzle, the novel is sweet and honest without being saccharine, making it a full, enjoyable read. (Sept.)
