Dayna Reynolds is holding on to her marriage by a thread. It's difficult to make a marriage work when only one person is committed to it. Her husband, Reed, thinks he has it made with a successful wife who pays his bills and ignores his sexual addiction. But then she's probably not so much ignoring it as she is in the dark about it.

However, when Dayna puts her foot down, Reed finds himself unwilling to let go of his luxurious lifestyle. He's determined to find a way to have the best of both worlds.

A heroine who is not very bright or assertive at times causes this novel to fall short of its potential. The plot is strong, but the characters fail to act, causing frustration rather than intrigue. The pace is sluggish, and certain aspects of the story lack detail. More background information on the characters would also enhance the story. Other than a strong plot, there is little about this novel that excites. (Jan., 227 pp., $14.00)
