Up-and-coming New York magazine publisher Selena Witherspoon is on top of the world. Set to launch her southern edition of Reigning Queen, this woman with a past she'd happily forget finds that her plate is nearly full.

Security consultant Darius McClellan guards his heart by contenting himself with playing the dating field—until he meets the stunning Selena. Struck by her beauty, enchanted by her smile and captivated by her personality, Darius may be in love, something he promised himself would never happen again.

This is a well-written romantic story that readers will find hard to let go. The love Selena and Darius feel for each other is clearly expressed and extremely believable. The story idea is fresh and unique. Washington has written another terrific novel. (Dec., 303 pp., $5.99)
