New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips presents the
first in a delightful new series about a quaint upstate New York town
where love, fate and fortune are intertwined ...

Faith Harrington was the classic girl of privilege--until her father
was convicted of running a Ponzi scheme and then her marriage crashed
and burned.

Now Faith is back in her hometown, hoping for a fresh start. But her
father's betrayal has rocked Serendipity - and not everyone is ready to
welcome her with open arms. Then she runs into her teenage crush -- the
dark, brooding Ethan Barron. Ethan, no stranger to scandal himself,
never imagined he'd own the mansion on the hill, much less ever again
come face to face with Faith--the princess he once kissed senseless. The
chance meeting reignites the electric charge between them.

Still, when Ethan hires her to redecorate what was once her childhood
home, Faith is sure that getting involved with the town's notorious bad
boy will only lead to trouble. But her heart has other ideas. And so do
the townspeople of Serendipity ...

Dear Readers,


SERENDIPITY is a new contemporary romance series in the more heartfelt
style I developed in novels like CROSS MY HEART and SEALED WITH A KISS.
I will be introducing you to the town of Serendipity, its landmark
Harrington Mansion, and a vibrant cast of characters from both sides of
the tracks. Like any other town, Serendipity has its secrets,
scandals, pain, heartache and love, but there is also an implied promise
of fortune and good luck, along with people at changes and crossroads
in their lives.

First up, Ethan Barron, the bad boy who has come
home to make good and Faith Harrington, the girl who got away.  Next is
Nash  Barron in Destiny (1/12) and Dare Barron in Karma (1/12).

I hope you'll take this new journey with me!
Happy Reading,
Carly Phillips
