All of a sudden, she is thrust into the limelight and forced to adhere to the laws of the rich and regal. Part of Amy wants to listen to her heart and make every effort to please Leo and his family. The other side of her wonders if love is worth the many sacrifices she is forced to make. (GALLERY, Oct., 448 pp., $16.00)
