Brandon Grayson is the next son to be married and his mother has single females hiding in the cupboards. To avoid matrimony he seeks shelter with the safest person he knows, his dearest friend, Santa Fe hotelier, Faith McBride. Faith has loved Brandon since she was a pesky wallflower in high school, and she plans to do something about it. Her confidence falters when she examines her full-figure in the mirror. She's not like the model thin women Brandon dates, but she has plans for that too. Faith literally changes while Brandon isn’t looking. He now sees enticing lips, a curvaceous body, and a sweet familiarity. He is convinced an affair with the one person he trusts will not get him into trouble. However, with his new feelings for Faith, Faith’s secret campaign, and strong outside forces, Brandon maybe jumping from the frying pan right into the fire. Francis Ray continues to honor readers with tales from the unforgettable Grayson family. Dreaming of You will delight readers as they share Faith’s unfaltering dream of life with Brandon and humorously sympathize with Brandon’s fate. Praise for Dreaming of You . . . .

"In this next perfect installment of the Grayson Family series, Ray does an outstanding job of bringing to life mother Ruth Grayson and her mission to marry off her children. Wondering what she'll come up with next will have readers turning pages at every opportunity. A great read from beginning to end, it's even excellent for an immediate re-read." – Romantic Times “An authentic romance, “Dreaming of You” is a sweet story about the underdog finding true love. The goodness and upstanding nature of the lovers is undeniable and highly attractive. The writing is excellent, being both realistic and entertainingly colorful. The dialogue, key to an exciting romance novel, is equally substantial and revealing. And of course, like all the best-enjoyed romance, it contains a nice spattering of passionate and provocative moments.” -- Nancy Morris, AllbooksReviews.com “Ms. Ray does an awesome job drawing this reader in with her charismatic characters, lovely imagery, gripping plot and blistering sensuality.” – Billy Jo, Romance Junkies Chat Coordinator and Reviewer “The chemistry was electric between them and the secondary characters added to the story rather than detract from it.
