SPOTLIGHT ON DESIRE
SPOTLIGHT ON DESIRE (4) by Anita Bunkley: Jewel Blaine is consumed with portraying Caprice Desmond on the soap opera The Proud and the Passionate. After an affair with a married man almost ruined her career, she vows to keep her distance from men who can destroy her career and her heart. When Taye Elliott is hired as interim director, he falls for Jewel immediately, and they dive into a romance that soon unravels. Bunkley's clever portrayal of Jewel, who conducts her life pretty much the same way as her onscreen character, breathes new life into the formula for a successful romantic story. Jewel is lost in Caprice's identity to the point where it's unclear where one ends and the other begins. Eventually she realizes that to have a fulfilling life she must keep them separate.
