Elizabeth Lane is one lucky woman. She has it all-money, fame, a satisfying career and a devoted fiancé. Her humble beginnings are all but obscured, but she isn't the kind of woman Senator Henry Lovinggood wants for his son, Richard. Senator Lovinggood plans to make Richard the President of the United States; he'll need a woman from a wealthy, powerful family by his side. Ten years ago the senator broke Richard and Elizabeth up, but this time it won't be so easy, for Elizabeth wants to know what might have been. This time she'll fight back, a struggle which ultimately leads to kidnapping and attempted murder and alienates her from the man of her dreams.
Excerpt: In this excerpt Richard and Elizabeth meet on a California beach ten years after they broke up.
Elizabeth threw her hands over her burning face again.
“What kind of woman am I? I haven’t seen you in ten years,
yet here I am leading you on and encouraging you to…
What’s wrong with me!”
Richard jerked her hands away from her face and kissed
them. “From my point of view things have finally taken a turn
for the better.” Satisfaction oozed from his voice. “You’re
willing to admit you don’t want to lose me. It’s taken ten
years, but we’re back where we belong: together. Everything
I ever felt for you came back the minute you spoke to me.”
His voice lowered and became husky and persuasive. “Don’t
tell me you didn’t feel it too.”
“I…” Elizabeth fell silent. After all, what could she say?
“Let me help you make up your mind about what you
want to do.” Richard pushed her back into the sand and kissed
her, a delicate brushing of lips that deepened as hearts caught
fire. Elizabeth imagined she could feel the thudding of his
heart against her own and shivered against him.
