Kennedy Devereaux

by Bernadette Marie


GENRE: Contemporary Romance



Kennedy Devereaux, owner of Kennedy Devereaux Designs, is a sight to behold in her signature pink colors, accented with custom designed jewelry. Intriguing enough that Joel Kingsley, the man building the new business next door, can’t help but keep coming around, just to get to know the woman in the designer clothes. He finds she’s not such a mystery, and his charm easily wins her over--until she finds that he’s forgotten to let her in on the secrets of his past.



Pink doors, crystal light fixtures, white shelves. Joel cupped his hands around his eyes to get a better look at the feminine interior of the store he stood in front of. Kennedy Devereaux Designs, the lettering on the door said. Costume jewelry, purses, and a few pieces of clothing were elegantly displayed on uncluttered shelves. He could see a small sitting area toward the back of the store with white chairs on a plush pink rug.

When he stepped back from the door, he inhaled. Could he even smell the store and all of its femininity?

“Can I help you?” A soft voice had him turning to see a woman, as feminine as the store, standing behind him.

She was the smell—sweet and floral. Soft golden hair framed a delicate face, and her lipstick matched the soft pastel pink of the doors he’d been looking through. Sharp blue eyes watched him as he stared at her.

Joel Kingsley was no idiot around women, but this one seemed to render him speechless.



My favorite Scene

Kennedy Devereaux is a classy business-woman with pink style. And when I say she has pink style, I mean it is her signature color. The book opens with a man looking into her boutique, through the pink French doors that lead into her store.

Kennedy’s boutique is a take on an appointment only dress shop my mother used to go to when I was growing up. It was fashioned in a 100-year-old Victorian house, that one day became the location of one of my salons. (Oh, I have many lives.)

This store, the one in the book, is soft and feminine—and pink. The doors are pink. There are pink accessories. Kennedy even has a signature nail polish color—Kennedy Pink.

When Joel looks through the windows and into the store, it takes me back to the pampering we got from the boutique of my youth. Beautiful clothes line the wall, custom made jewelry, and designer accessories and purses. While looking for inspirational photos, I will admit I wanted to open a boutique to just be surrounded by the femininity of it. (I have five hockey playing sons. I deserve soft and pink.)

The scene is not only my favorite because it draws from my memories, but because it introduces us to Kennedy Devereaux. She’s in heels and finely tailored clothes, with her Kennedy Pink nail polish, but she’s strong and full of that sass that would have any man falling in line.

I suppose it’s appropriate for the opening of the book to be my favorite. Kennedy Devereaux is the first book in the Devereaux Family series, and it’s always wonderful to get to know a new family that we’re going to fall in love with.
