When she moves her Alzheimer’s-afflicted dad into the home she shares with her husband and elderly dog, Rachel Morgan expects some complications, but she never imagines the biggest one will occur on the first day, threatening her best-intentioned caregiving plans.
Her normally sweet-natured dad—a former mailman who experienced too many run-ins with biting dogs—is adamant about wanting nothing to do with her big black Labrador. But as Rachel tends to the escalating physical and emotional needs of each, she notices the striking similarities in their aging processes, and realizes these two souls whom she loves deeply are on the same journey.
With time working against her, Rachel must find a way to transform their uneasy truce into a trusting companionship. In doing so, she hopes to make their shared journey less lonely and frightening—and more bearable for those who must someday let them go.
The quest begins for Lexi when she leaves her husband to begin a scorching affair with an old high school flame, Nick Cross, who has become the number one movie star in the world. Nick was the first boy to awaken Lexi's sexuality, though their passion was never consummated. When he comes back into her life, she follows her heart in answering her long-burning question of, "What if...?"
Their passion is white hot, and their love is real. But when the ardent love scenes required by Nick’s leading-man profession begin to wear on Lexi, she takes a break from the relationship and returns to Miami to sort out her feelings and finalize her divorce from her husband, Brad.
Things get complicated for Lexi when tabloid gossip about Nick’s affair with his beautiful co-star emerges. On top of that, Brad’s punitive demands compel Lexi to walk out on divorce negotiations.
Looking to escape the turmoil, Lexi delves into nostalgia and reconnects with Bobby Hardwick, the cute boy she fell hard for at Kiawah Island in the summer of her fourteenth year. They easily fall into a very grown-up and sexually-sizzling relationship, and in Bobby’s arms, Lexi finds healing and rekindled love.
Nick. Brad. Bobby. Each man loves Lexi, and each man knows about the others. As each one realizes he has a tentative hold on Lexi’s love, he ups the stakes in winning her heart and her exclusive love. Lexi is in the driver's seat, but ultimately, reluctantly, she has to choose among the three men. Whom does she choose? How does she choose?
In trying to decide, Lexi has to wonder: “Why does it have to come down to choosing just one man, when no one man can give me everything I want?”
Great Southeast Book Festival - Top Ten Honorable Mention
"This was a real page turner, and the writing wonderful."
"This is a top shelf fiction thriller by a great writer."
"The author does a wonderful job of building suspense and keeping the reader flipping the pages."
In this two-time award-winning thriller, Florida Governor Michael Romano becomes embroiled in a moral dilemma that threatens to shatter his marriage and political career.
Romano, whose political success has been built on a platform of morality, is laser-focused on his agenda to enact stricter abortion legislation in his state. While campaigning to further his agenda, he meets a wealthy young widow, Kristin Long, who sets her sites on the governor. Despite a faithful marriage of seventeen years, Romano is drawn into a lustful affair that, despite precautions, results in an unintended pregnancy. Now Kristin wants him and his baby, and she will publicly destroy him if he doesn’t leave his wife to marry her.
Romano finds himself walking a tightrope, where a single misstep can ruin his carefully-constructed personal and political life. Choice takes on a whole new meaning for Romano as he plumbs his conscience and weighs his ever-narrowing options.
Romano’s moral compass is irreversibly skewed once he decides to set in motion a fatal plan that will allow him to pull free from the tangled web he has woven.
When Kristin’s dead body is found on a beach in Miami, her murder is attributed to a serial killer, and the case is closed. Romano draws his first easy breath in months. He’s safe.
Or is he?
The Miami police may have closed the books on the case, but to Jake Miller, a former NYPD detective and long-lost brother of Kristin Long, things just don’t add up. Using his finely-honed instincts and drawing on his law enforcement experience and connections, Jake follows clues that lead him to the Governor’s Mansion.
When he confronts Romano with what he knows but can’t prove, he’s certain he’ll get the Governor’s steely façade to crack. But Romano, raised in the Little Italy district of the Bronx, has already fought his way through major obstacles to get where he is, and no one is going to take that away from him. A gritty battle of wills between the two men leaves Romano unscathed.
Dejected but not defeated, Jake—whose tenacity and sense of justice are his driving forces—realizes that even though he may not be able to nail Governor Romano in a court of law, there’s another way to hit Romano where he lives and balance the scales of justice.
As one reviewer said, “I kept wondering right up until the end how she (the author) would have the self-righteous, hypocritical Governor Romano get his comeuppance. Well, did she ever! And I never guessed how. Bravo!”
