From the moment she met Tag Elliott, Renee Williams thought of nothing but how his lips would feel on hers. That and darkened bedrooms and whispered promises. But as a member of Manhattan's wealthiest family, Tag was way out of the social worker's league. Besides, no matter how much she craved him, there was one small matter: She was black and Tag was white.

Overview

From the moment she met Tag Elliott, Renee Williams thought of nothing but how his lips would feel on hers. That and darkened bedrooms and whispered promises. But as a member of Manhattan's wealthiest family, Tag was way out of the social worker's league. Besides, no matter how much she craved him, there was one small matter: She was black and Tag was white.

Renee allowed them one night to live their fantasies, but in the light of day Tag had to admit once was not enough. He could ignore the scandal they would stir; why couldn't she? After all, Tag wanted her. And he always got what he wanted....

Meet the Author

Brenda is a die-hard romantic who married her childhood sweetheart 30 years ago and still proudly wears the "going steady" ring he gave her when she was 15. Because she began believing very early in the power of love and romance, she can't help but write stories with happy endings. She is an award-winning bestselling author of more than 10 romance novels and looks forward to increasing that number. She and her husband live in the city where they were born, Jacksonville, Fla., and have two sons in college. She has a B.S. in business administration and presently works in management for a major insurance company.

Coming home from work and sitting down to her computer to weave love stories is the highlight of her day. She and her husband spend time together traveling to discover those romantic places she could use as settings in her books.

Brenda would love to hear from her readers. Write her at P.O. Box 28267, Jacksonville, FL 32226. You can also contact her through her email address, GJBJ@aol.com.

I love Brenda Jackson, unfortunately this romance novel didn't do it for me. Not the best romance I've read, but it was okay. The characters were not very memorable. The story just didn't grab me. The romance and intimacy lacked it's usual spicy, heat that Mrs. Jackson usually gives us. It just didn't have enough depth to pull you and get you caught up in the main characters. But it was a cute idea, that just fell short between the pages.

I started out with the first book in the Elliotts series, The Billionaire's Proposition, and got hooked on the storyline. This 2nd book, written by Brenda Jackson, one of the most prolific romance writers, an excellent tale of interracial romance, is tastefully and appropriately written. It certainly depicts the differences in outlooks on love from a 'color' perspective. I appreciate the fact that the male lead character was confident in himself as a man, and was able to override any prejudice displayed around him. I am looking forward to the rest of the books in this series.

I truly enjoyed reading this book and was able to finish in aprox. 6 hours. I am very happy that the author didn¿t fill the book with a bunch of stereotypes and annoying clichés. This story was fast, to the point, uncomplicated and interesting. The Hero was strong and knew what and who he wanted regardless of the stupidity of others. I did have to get use to reading the word had over and over again.

Brenda! Brenda! Brenda! You're killing me on this one. I have read a couple of your books before this one and found them delightful. But 'THIS' one really falls short, to say the least. While I liked the concept of the storyline, the substance, characters, as well as the grammer fell far beneath what I know you can do. Whats with the word 'HAD'. It kept popping up for every other word? That was irritating beyond belief. Your characters in this book are suppose to be intelligent, 'Well Educated,' yet, you have them all speaking as though they know nothing of the 'King's' laugauge, nevermine being actual writers and editors of successful magazines. Did you really write this book Brenda? I took a peak at another book you wrote, though I'm not sure its new, but there was that silly misused word again 'HAD.' As well as others. I left it on the book stand. Not good is all I can say. Not good at all. Rewrite.
