In search of her roots, chef Kiera Blackhawk lands a job working under hotel manager Sam Prescott -- and in the heart of a family business. Allowing him to think she's on the run from an abusive relationship, Kiera tries to piece together Blackhawk's Betrayal (4) and plunges into a personal relationship with Sam. Sam's out to discover all of Kiera's secrets and claim her as his own. Then her lies surface, and he's forced to choose between his career and the woman who has stolen his heart. Barbara McCauley's understanding of honor, betrayal and family values lends warmth to this steamy story.
