Stormy love story between two professional tennis players. This story will especially appeal to tennis fans.
Excerpt from the back of the book:
"Opposites attract, but it can be a volatile mix. Asher Wolfe and Ty Starbuck were tennis superstars-incendiary Ty all fire and flash, Asher the ice princess with devastating control.
Three years before, the combination had resulted in a passionate, unforgettable affair. But misunderstandings had catapulted Asher into an unhappy marriage with another man.
Now the ice princess was back on the circuit, determined to win. But from Wimbledon to Forest Hills, her concentration was threatened. Ty's dark eyes dared her to become the fiery woman he had once loved-and would not lose again."

The conflict that come between these protagonists, interfering with their ability to stay together, has been told in various ways in thousands of other romance novels.

What sets this story apart from the others is the sports backdrop, injecting much needed action, color and competitiveness to an otherwise basic, dime-a-dozen plot. Throw in exciting venues such as Rome, Paris, London, Australia and New York, viewed through beautifully detailed descriptions which Nora Roberts is famous for, and the story really comes alive off the pages! It's always a rare treasure to find one of her earliest novels.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the few Nora Roberts books that didn't thrill me. It seemed as if she had too many different subplots, which deterred from the main story line. The characters were well developed, but didn't have the personalities with which the reader could identify.

This is the tale of two tennis stars and their on-again, off-again romance. Asher and Ty were opposites and years before it seemed as if they had everything either of them could want - they were champions, they were in love and engaged, and they were happy even with opposite personalities. At least, they were happy until Asher broke the engagement and immediately married another man. The story picks up several years later when Asher is divorced and trying to make a comeback in the tennis world. She's determined to be the #1 tennis player in the world once again and she seems to be on the right course. She's figured out everything except for the way she feels when she sees Ty again and the anger he has towards her throws off her self-confidence. Through a series of events around the tennis courts, the story finally comes out about why and how Asher could leave the only man she ever loved and why she's now back on the circuit.

This plot is the cookie-cutter romance story and it seemed as if Nora Roberts couldn't make up her mind as to which villain to place in the story so she throws several into the mix. The ex-husband who sweeps Asher away only to demand that she never play tennis again, who alienates her from her friends and family with lies. Then there's Ty's sister who loves to stir up trouble and has hidden her secrets for years because she's afraid of Ty's wrath if he found out the truth. And the baby... well that's where the story really falls apart and becomes mundane.

This is still a decent book for an afternoon of relaxing. It won't leave you with any lasting impressions but will be somewhat enjoyable while you're reading it.

First of all i want to say that this was a great book. The Tennis fans will espesially like it. I don't usually read that kind of stories, but I took this one randomly and was amazad how sweet and kind of naive it was. I liked Tay and Asher very much. I recomend this book to all of you with romantic hearts. Ms. Roberts, You've done a great job through the years! Keep it up!

I''m a fan of Nora Roberts and I thought this story was a good one. I also learned how professional tennis players have to be dedicated to the sport.

This was not her usually well written book. I don't mind a few "intimate" scenes, but this one had too many. I'm not a prude, but I think she went a little over-board on this one. It was a good story and I read it quickly (as I do most of her books).

A good story that shows how letting what other people think make life altering decisions for us. Shows you need to be true to your own heart.

My attention was held from the first word to the last. I liked Ty and Asher the struggle they had with their relationship, Asher's determination to come back to a tough sport after being away for three years. I think anyone would enjoy reading this book.
