Any Rich Man Will Do

Francis Ray

St. Martin's Griffin

In this new novel from the national bestselling author Francis Ray, a bad girl falls on hard times, and forgiveness and redemption are the only things she has left.

Broke and living in a shabby motel, beautiful bad girl Jana Franklin has become an outcast in the elite Dallas society she once ruled. With her divorce from wealthy Gray Livingston, her dubious past, and no skills to claim, Jana is unable to support herself. Without friends and without hope, she has no one she can depend on but herself.
Then one night she stumbles (literally!) into Olivia Maxwell's store, Midnight Dreams. There she meets Tyler Maxwell---the first man she can't maneuver, toy with, or fool. After this chance meeting, tough girl Jana learns that it takes more than scheming to get her man.

Praise for Any Rich Man Will Do

"Any Rich Man Will Do is a heartfelt story about redemption, second chances, and love."
---Elizabeth Lowell, New York Times bestselling author

"Ms. Ray's eloquent writing style and her development of memorable characters captured my attention from page one, and held it all the way through to the end."---J. D. Mason, award-winning author of Don't Want No Sugar and One Day I Saw a Black King

"This is a wonderful story about love, friendship, and a woman coming to terms with who she is and finding out what's important in life. Sometimes it's not about what you see on the outside. Sometimes it goes a little bit deeper than that."---Ursula Inga Kindred and Mirranda Guerin-Williams, bestselling authors of Mister Gumbo and Sister Gumbo

Praise for Like the First Time

"With each successive book, the talented Ms. Ray moves further from her roots in romances for African-American audiences, and closer to general bestselling status. This book will appeal to any reader, of any race, who simply yearns for a satisfying story, gorgeously told."
