Public relations mogul Terri Powers is returning from a forced leave of absence to discover her second-in-command has not only conspired to bring her PRfirm to the brink of financial ruin, but has also gone against her wishes to put together a deal with the worst corporate barracuda in America, Clinton Steele.

Clinton Steele is impressed with the regal beauty who interrupts his meeting to tell him her firm doesn't work with unscrupulous businessmen. Despite the tragedies that have numbed his emotions, he's overwhelmingly attracted to Ms. Powers. Though he accedes to her wishes and takes his business elsewhere, Clinton has no intention of letting this delicate but oh-so-scrumptious morsel of a woman slip through his suddenly aching-to-touch-her fingers!

DECEPTION is a spellbinding story of love, intrigue, forgiveness and a couple who defy their own personal demons to find everlasting happiness. Once again, Donna Hill has created a novel of pure, unadulterated reading pleasure. (July, 316 pp, $4.99)
