From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a brand new series set on Blueberry Lane!

The Director and Don Juan is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based Story sisters who are all on the look-out for love.

Heiress Alice Story left her father's company three years ago in a blaze of glory, inviting all of his employees to jump ship and join her, but only one accepted her offer: mail room clerk, Carlos Vega.

While Alice spent the next three years getting her own company off the ground, Carlos became her indispensable right-hand man -- executive assistant and office manager, loyal counsel and trusted co-worker.

And all the while, they were quietly falling in love with each other.

When Alice is offered a lucrative business deal in Puerto Rico, island-born Carlos is the perfect person to accompany her on her trip as translator, but as they travel together from Philadelphia to Santo Domingo to Ponce, two unlikely co-workers will discover that during their three years working together, their feelings for each other have grown far deeper than they ever could have guessed.

And though business-minded, proper Alice will try her very best to ignore the longings of her heart, scorching hot, insanely sexy Boricua, Carlos, has no intention of letting her go.


The Story sisters are back! This time we get Alice’s story in The Director and Don Juan.  This was a sweet and romantic story of two unexpected people finding just what they needed.

Alice has been working hard to build her business after leaving her father’s company. He had no faith in Alice, as a woman, could run a company and she was determined to prove him wrong. Now she is ready to take on a profitable deal and needs her loyal employee, Carlos to help her. But is she ready for how much things will change?

I loved Alice in this story. In the previous book, we could see she was a strong, determined and ambitious, but this time around we also get to see some of her vulnerability as well. And I loved seeing all that professionalism start to crack!

When Alice left her father’s company, she left an open invitation to anyone that wanted to follow. Carlos Vega was the only one that did. Now he is her right-hand person. He is younger than Alice, but together they have built this company. She trusts him. But for Carlos, Alice is so much more than his boss. But the lines have always been drawn, until now.

When a business trip arises, Carlos is just the person to accompany Alice. Carlos was so good for and with Alice. He was patient and caring when needed, a shoulder to lean and depend on, but also just the right amount of alpha when things got intimate. He was just the right balance for Alice and they were so good together.

As Carlos and Alice begin to spend time together and the lines start to blur, they face very real obstacles. Age difference, professional relationship and very different backgrounds. It was interesting to see them navigate through these obstacles together.

I really enjoyed reading The Director and Don Juan. It was a sweet, slow burn story with a touch of humor. This is a perfect summer read!

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
