Roman Chandler, youngest of three brothers - handsome, dark hair, sexy bedroom blue eyes, wonderful physique, world traveling journalist - and definitely a confirmed bachelor.

Raina Chandler, mother of three bachelor sons - widowed and lonely - who wanted grandchildren above anything else.

Charlotte Bronson, eligible woman in town - beautiful, long black hair down past her shoulders, gorgeous body - with a crush on Roman that went back to high school days.

Roman had no intentions of changing his carefree, globe trotting bachelor ways, even though he did lose the coin toss between the three brothers that designated him the 'loser' who had to get married to give his mother her heart's desire - grandchildren. He intended on finding a woman in Yorkshire Falls who would be content to be left behind, tending to the babies, while he went on about his life - coming home every now and then, when he felt like it.

Charlotte had her chance with Roman back in high school. The chemistry between them was off the Richter scale. But Charlotte carried a lot of baggage around with her. When Roman confided in her that he wanted to pursue a career as a journalist after high school and that his heart's desire was to travel the world, Charlotte quickly doused her burning feelings for Roman. She didn't want a man like her father, who came and went in her life just as he pleased, with no thought of how much it hurt to be abandoned.

But old flames burn bright. The chemistry between Roman and Charlotte still blazed high even after all these years.

Carly Phillips takes the reader on a fascinating journey with Roman and Charlotte as they work their way through the muddle of emotions they find themselves in. Carly writes a story that is light, funny - and very hot! You don't want to miss this first novel in her Warner Trilogy - THE BACHELOR. It will leave you panting for the other two novels in the trilogy - THE PLAYBOY and THE LONER.
