When pediatric oncologist, Trevor Callen, is paired with the stocky, aggressive lawyer Lisa Brightner at his brother’s wedding, he’s intrigued, but he refuses to get involved with a woman who lives in another state. His roommate, hardware store owner, Dante Williams, doesn’t mind the travel, but since he and Trevor share, he won’t pursue her—it’s just not done.
After Lisa is laid off, she returns to Intrigue for a month to help Mandy Callen with her new baby. Not only does she rekindle her attraction with the men, but she falls for a third man, Mitch Dawes, a NYT best-selling author. Too bad Mitch and Trevor have a bad history together—the woman they both wanted to marry dumped Trevor for Mitch. Now Trevor won’t even return Mitch’s calls. What can Lisa do to get all three men to forgive the past and join forces to love her?

Review by Jessie
Ms. Monroe's book Competing For Lisa: The Callens was a true joy to read. Set in Wyoming she gave you a real feel for the setting. An endearing story of taking a chance on love.
Trevor was hurt years ago and has closed his heart to love and being close to anyone. Mitch was also hurt years ago and looks at life as one big unhappy ending. Dante is the new man that shares with Trevor, whose love of life has you cheering for him. Lisa is the woman they all want and she wants them back but she’s not sure she is ready for a relationship with all of them.
This book is for those who love a good old fashion romance novel with a twist. This was a compelling story of a woman finding what she wanted and coming into her own. As three men worked together to make a relationship while putting the past behind them for the woman they love. Ms. Monroe build a slow and steady sizzle of love and sexy hot enough to burn.
