Veronica Overtons position as executive director for Baltimores Child Placement and Assistance agency has been her life for as long as she can remember. When Schyler Henderson of Advocates for the Child brings accusations against her agency, it threatens to tear her world apart. She decide to take a leave of absence and do some of the things she has always dreamed of. Having to suddenly leave Switzerland because her mother is on her deathbed, Schylers mothers last words implore her to find her birth father, who she believes deserted her family.

Veronica is resentful of her biological father even though she is wildly attracted to Schyler whom she discovers is closer to her father than she ever imagined. She still has a lot of answers to find before she can open up to the love Schyler can offer. It is not until her fathers plane is feared missing that she allows herself to listen to her heart.

This novels lyrical writing style makes the reader fall in love with the words as well as the characters. SWEPT AWAY proves that Ms. Forster is still at the top of the romance game. (Mar., 336 pp., $5.99)
