Having just discovered that she's pregnant, when Ana suspects her husband has continued his relationship with a former mistress, it's the last straw. She takes off and threatens Luc with divorce. Desperate, Luc blackmails her by threatening to prosecute her father for embezzlement. But life doesn't return to normal when his former mistress turns up the heat a few notches in her campaign to win Luc back. Helen Bianchin's A PASSIONATE SURRENDER (4) is a highly charged read. Her characters are dynamic and leap off the page with a powerful conflict and passionate scenes.
