The Heartbreaker
By Carly Phillips 

     Chase Chandler - handsome son number three of the three Chandler men.

     Raina Chandler - Chase's meddling mother who spent her time trying to get her sons married off in order to produce grandchildren for her.

     Sloane Carlisle - the beautiful senator's daughter who discovered that her whole life has been a lie.

     Chase has finally come to the point in his life when he could shrug off the responsibility for the Chandler family that he took on when his father died. He finally had the opportunity to pursue his dreams that had been on hold since he was eighteen. He was not about to get involved with any woman who wanted the white picket fence and children. He had raised his brothers, so to speak, and that was enough for him. He was ready to take on the world to be the hotshot reporter that he had never had the opportunity to be. He was through with small town life; the world would be his stage.

     Sloane plays the part of the dutiful daughter of a famous senator to perfection. However, inside, she wonders why she seems so different from the rest of her family. On the eve of her father's announcement that he was going to be running for Vice-President, she finds out exactly why she is so different. Her life spins out of control with the discovery. The answer to the secrets and the betrayal are waiting to be discovered in the little town of Yorkshire Falls, New York.

     Neither Chase nor Sloan can deny the hot flames of desire that sizzle between them from their first accidental meeting - and the consequent one-night stand that they allowed to happen. However, it is the wrong place and time for them. Neither of them is looking for a relationship. Nevertheless, love has a way of finding even those who fight against it.

     Carly Phillips has once again produced a best seller with The Heartbreaker, the last book in the Chandler Men series. I like this one even better than I liked the first two, The Bachelor and The Playboy.
