Waiting On Wednesday: Starlight


This Carrie Lofty fan is very excited about this upcoming book:




 
STARLIGHT
The Christie Family Series, Book 2
Author: Carrie Lofty
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Pocket Books
Expected Release Date: June 26, 2012
  

Esteemed astronomer Alex Christie, the eldest and most steadfast of the Christie siblings, has never possessed his late father's ruthless business drive.  But to protect his frail infant son from his cruel father-in-law's bid for custody, the young widower must undertake Sir William Christie's posthumous million-dollar challenge: to make a Glasgow cotton mill profitable.  At sea in an industrial world of sabotage and union agitation, Alex meets Polly Gowan, daughter of a famed union leader, who hopes to seize a mysterious saboteur without involving the police.

Because a sympathetic mill master would aid her cause, Polly becomes Alex's guide to urban Scotland.  From soccer games to pub brawls, Alex sees another side of life, and feels free for the first time to reveal the man - vital and strong - behind his intellectual exterior.  Polly is utterly seduced.  Their ambitions, however, remains at odds: Alex vows to earn the mill bonus to save his child, while Polly fights for the needs of her people.  Is there strength enough in their sparkling passion to bind them together in their quests - and in a lasting love that conquers all?
