Hurricane Reese
by R.L. Merrill

The life of Tony-winning musician Reese Matheson resembles a natural disaster, and caregiver Jude De La Torre is caught in the eye of the storm. But can the love of two opposites survive caring for an ornery octogenarian with wayward balls and a meddling family insistent upon tradition? Fresh off the successful London run of his musical, the last thing Reese expects when he comes home is a house surrounded by paparazzi and his girlfriend throwing his stuff into the pool. All he wants to do is spend time with his beloved grandfather and musical mentor who suffers from Alzheimer's. Reese knows he doesn't have much time left before the elder Matheson forgets who he is. In classic "Hurricane Reese" form, he moves into the cottage by the sea and displaces Jude, the intriguing caregiver he hired two years before. When Grandpa proves too much for Reese to handle on his own, Jude comes to his rescue, taming Grandpa... and the Hurricane as well. Soon all Reese can think about is how to get Jude out of his scrubs and into his bedpermanently. Will Hurricane Reese destroy everything in his path, or will this odd couple learn to harmonize together?
