Introduction

(She didn't count on inheriting a fortune...or worse, a man.Everybody in picturesque Hanscomb Harbor knows about pretty shop owner Maddie Copeland's bad luck. Getting bitten by a dog has made her absolutely phobic about the critters. Getting left at the altar has made her just as scared of romance. But when a dear, yet quirky, old man named James who just passed through town for the summer, dies and leaves a will behind naming Maddie as his heir, her luck starts to look up-that is until she meets James's handsome, bachelor grandson...When Henry "Hank" Madison, III hears the terms of his wealthy grandfather's will, he is outraged. If he wants to remain acting CEO of James' corporation, Hank must live in Hanscomb Harbor four times a year. And if that isn't bad enough, he has to share his inheritance with some blonde bombshell! But Hank isn't about to let some gold digger rob him of what's rightfully his-even if she does take his breath away every time she is near...and even if he is hopelessly losing his heart to her.AUTHORBIO: Award-winning author Cheryl Anne Porter makes her masterfully entry into contemporary mainstream fiction with Mad About Maddie-an ingeniously funny, thoroughly modern blend of humor and romance. Porter's flair for creating smart, witty dialogue and intelligent, believable characters unwittingly bedeviled by life's quirkier twists, has made the author a consistent favorite with readers and reviewers alike.A National Readers Choice Award winner, Porter is best known for her gripping historical romantic suspense. Captive Angel earned Publishers Weekly's prestigious Starred Review for the author in 1999. Her other historical titles have garnered consistent critical acclaim and numerous honors, not least of which was the Library of Congress' selecting her Jessie's Outlaw for its Rare Book Collection. The prolific writer also has a second place Madcap Comedy Award finish to her credit. A popular keynote and workshop speaker, Porter teaches college-level fiction writing near her home on Florida's West Coast.
