ProductsMore About The Perfect Hope by Nora RobertsOverview#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts completes the Inn BoonsBoro trilogy with a novel of starting over and star-crosed love.
Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out with a tough-as-nails exterior and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro
The former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is now where she wants to be except for in her love life. Her only interaction with the opposite sex has been sparring with the infuriating Ryder, who always seems to get under her skin. Still, no one can deny the electricity that crackles between them a spark that ignited with a New Year s Eve kiss.
While the inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope s experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome and embarrassing appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs Ryder s emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him

Ghosts, betrayal, misunderstanding, and jealousy take a hand in this enchanting final installment of the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy by bestselling romance writer Roberts (The Last Boyfriend). Hotelier Hope Beaumont leaves her post at a swanky Washington, D.C., hotel following a humiliating romantic breakup with the owner's son, to reunite with friends in Boonsboro, Md., and become innkeeper of the charming Inn BoonsBoro, owned by the Montgomery family. Hope is warmly welcomed by all except Ryder Montgomery, the gauche yet sexy inn owner's son. Teasing sexual tension develops between cool, urbane Hope and unpolished Ryder, culminating in more than one heated liaison. Hope believes their burning obsession is only filling a carnal need; the reader will have less trouble recognizing the truth. Roberts provides a spectral subplot fraught with sightings and physical contact between the inn's resident lovelorn, meddling ghost, Lizzy, and Hope, Ryder, and one very annoying guest. Incredibly, no one questions the existence of the long-departed honeysuckle-scented Lizzy, who is desperately searching for her deceased beau, Billy, a Civil War soldier. Although Roberts sets a slow pace, presumably to mirror life in a small town, she doesn't disappoint when all the loose ends come together at the end. (Nov.)
