For many years, Claire Langdon lived a privileged life. She knew only comfort and pleasure, and provided both for her son.

Now Claire is a widow, scraping by thanks to her grandmother. Between her painful memories, a new career, and her traumatized child, shes got all she can handle.

Then long-haired, gorgeous Brad Blue barrels his way into her life. Hes not really Claires type, and though shes strongly attracted, shes just not sure she can hold her own with a man like Brad.

This is an intensely suspenseful novel that will have you holding your breath until the last page. The romance is lacking however, and too often Brad forces Claire to bend to his stronger will, making our heroine seem to be a spineless wimp, and himself a brute. (dl $4.95)
