Party time, oh it's party time!

ROMANCE AUTHOR CHERIS HODGES RETURNS THIS MAY WITH
FORCES OF NATURE, BEING PUBLISHED BY DAFINA BOOKS
Opposites attract in this contemporary romance about a straight-laced
idealistic woman who meets her match.
Author Cheris Hodges has the unique ability of being able to appeal to readers of women’s fiction as well as urban fiction with her edgy and sassy characters. Her stories are fresh, modern and sexy. RT Book Reviews praised her most recent release Too Hot For Tv calling it a winning romance that readers will love” while author Farrah Rochon simply says “count on Cheris Hodges to deliver a sassy, sexy romantic read.” Now, Hodges returns with FORCES OF NATURE, a contemporary romance about a straight-laced idealistic woman who meets her match.
When Crystal Hughes handcuffs herself to the receptionist's desk at the lobby of Welco Industries, she just wanted to prove a point--no one was going to tear down the more than 100 acres of farmland that had been in her family since the turn of the century. But she never expected that the person at the head of the project would be as handsome as Douglas Wellington, III. Likewise, Douglas Wellington, III wasn't going to let some grassroots protester stop his plan. Tearing down the farmland and turning it into a multimillion dollar business park was going to do wonders for the city--invigorate the community and add thousands of new jobs, but when he spots Crystal, who's spunky and full of fire, the project seems to be the last thing on his mind. Now these two opposites will have to figure out what's real and what's really worth fighting for.
