It was really painful to read. Although the attraction was written on the pages between Schyler and Veronica I just couldn't feel the chemistry when reading it. I also think the characters were written way beyond their years. Veronica was only 32, and Schyler 36 and he said things like:
"I'm a man who believes in making people live up to their notices, and I've got a fistful of yours. You with me?"
"I go for a woman who has a hearty appetite and doesn't pick over the food. It doubles my pleasure in her company"
I know this book was originally published in 2000, but I don't think women would go for these lines then or now. Veronica had some awful punchlines as well. The 2nd time around I tried really hard, but just couldn't force myself to finish this one. Too bad though, because the story had a lot of potential to be a really good love story.
Swept Away starts out slow, but picks up as the book progresses taking readers on an interesting walk through a relationship with large hurtles to overcome. The large array of secondary characters give this story an amazing amount of depth, making the story true to life and enhancing the growing relationship between our hero and heroine. In true Gwynne Foster style all the characters and their stories touch your heart, providing readers with a three dimensional story that will draw you in as your turn the pages.

Schyler Henderson and Veronica Overton share more than they realize when they first become enchanted with one another. However being on opposite sides of the court case Schyler has brought against the child services agency that Veronica heads does not provide them with the immediate trust with that attraction. Veronica's agency is exonerated but she takes a leave of absence to reevaluate her career options. Schyler is passionate about children lost in an uncaring child welfare system because of the years he spent lost in that same system until he was adopted by Richard Henderson a man he loves deeply. Richard gave Schyler the home filled with love he needed and Schyler filled the void created in Richard when his wife abandoned him taking his daughter.
Veroncia's mother dies and she learns that the man she was raised to know as father was not and her mothers last request was for Veronica to find her real father, when she finds him she does not expect to find Schyler. Although Schyler desires a relationship with Veronica he is loyal to his dad and can't fully accept her distrust of Richard. Veronica has many questions about her life she needs answers to, she wants something more with Schyler but not on his terms. They both have to overcome obstacles of the past and learn to accept the love they feel for one another and allow that love to bridge their past with their future. I also loved Jenny as the homeless woman that their lives touched on their journey to a happy tomorrow for them all.
