Since Tempest Dailey saw her college flame Braxton Thorne six years ago, a lot has happened. Not only has she married a good provider with his eyes set on Congress, she also has an adorable daughter and her own design business. She should be happy, but she isnt. Her mind and body still ache for Braxton and the love they once shared. She believes her feelings are under control until her unsuspecting, domineering husband hires Braxton to work on a project Tempest is to be a part of.

Braxton never forgot Tempest. In the years since he learned she no longer wanted to be with him, he, too, married, and he made a name for himself as an architect. With no love between his alcoholic wife and himself, he vows to win back the love of his life. Tempests husband wont hear of it. He wants his wife by his side during his run for U.S. Congress, and he will stop at nothing to keep her with him.

Ms. Hills talents as a writer are unquestionable. Her magical voice makes you forget about the issue of adultery and focus on true love. This book speaks to the heart of anyone who has ever experienced the wonders of first love and how difficult it is to move on when you realize the one has gotten away. (Aug., 185 pp., $4.99)
