Synopsis

In the first book of The Fancy Lives of the Lear Sisters trilogy, a spoiled socialite discovers the best things in life are worth working for.

Robin Lear’s extravagant lifestyle is the envy of every socialite in Texas—until a personal tragedy changes everything. Her father, shipping tycoon Aaron Lear, announces he has just months to live. Determined to teach his spoiled daughter one final life lesson, Aaron demotes her from her cushy job in the family business and sends her to work for an insufferable manager. Now, for the first time in her life, Robin will have to earn her place in the world—and the sexy new contractor renovating her house may be just the man to show her how.

Jake Manning never had it easy, and after years of hard work, he’s finally ready to settle down and enjoy the fruits of his labor. Yet one look at gorgeous Robin Lear is all it takes to turn his carefully laid plans upside down. Jake knows better than to mix business with pleasure, but that’s before he realizes there’s more to this trust-fund princess than meets the eye. Taking a chance on her means taking a chance on love—and Jake knows all too well that the best things in life are worth the effort.
