    A great read!

    I loved that this book was totally different from Brenda Jackson's other romance novels. This book was filled with lots of secrets, surprises, and scandal. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend.

    Fantastic Read

    Secrets and sins from the past threaten to poison the love Erica Sanders and Brian Lawson share. They'd felt a primitive, instinctive need for each other on sight and acted on it. These two beautiful people, from different backgrounds who know they are meant for each other, are oblivious to the undercurrent of evil that seeks to undermine their getting married. Their sensual, sizzling, sexual encounters keep them intoxicated with happiness.

    Erica's mother Karen Delbert Sanders never lets her daughter forget how important her family is in their little town and how necessary it is to be associated with the 'right' people.

    Even as a child, Erica circumvented her mother's master plan. Her best girl friend was and continues to be April North from the wrong side of town-a girl who does not know who her father is, but became wealthy and well-known anyway. Moreover, Griffin Hayes, whom Erica's mother planned for her to marry, becomes her best male friend but never a lover. They conspired, at an early age, to outwit their managing mothers and seek love rather than settle for an arranged marriage.

    The gorgeous, unpretentious, successful young lawyer Brian Lawson from Dallas who had been reared by a single mother just will not do for Erica's husband as far as Karen Sanders is concerned. He just mucks up her master plan. Love does not figure into the equation for Karen-breaking the curse demands a Delbert marry a Hayes and Karen plans to see that Eric and Griffin do just that. She spares no expense and pulls no punches as she sets in to undermine her own daughter's happiness.

    Wilson Sanders, Erica's father, and Rita Lawson, Brian's mother, recognize their adult children's love and they support Brian and Erica in their marriage plans. As they pursue their own busy professional lives, they have personal decisions to make that impact Erica and Brian's lives as well as their own-some highly emotional, tense times arise. from these decisions.

    While the plot kept me reading at top speed, I did not feel pulled into the experiences with the characters, but felt as if I was on the outside looking in much of the time. Even so, it never entered my mind not to keep reading to find out how the characters, even secondary ones Jaye Pittman and Donna Hardy fare when the tangled web of lies and manipulation finally unravels. Of course, April and Griffin's story is an added bonus not to be missed.

    Brenda Jackson weaves together many places and many people to create to tale of manipulation, social prejudice, abuse, social mores, but best of all she weaves in loves that rise above all the evil to soar and sparkle with sizzling sex, sensual settings, and insatiable desires to love and be loved.
