All Tina Morton remembered of her waterskiing accident were the muscular arms that buoyed her, the huge hand she clung to. World class power lifter Joe Rustin was the rescuer--her reason to recover.
Standing by her when others fled, Joe became Tina's coach, her inspiration, her constant companion--but not her lover. Though she longed for more than a partner in pumping iron, Joe held himself back, fiercely cautious of his own tremendous strength.
He'd given her courage and confidence; dare she unleash his deepest passions, the power suppressed within him?
Origionally published by Silhouette Special Edition, The Power Within is the story of two people reaching beyond their pasts.
Bottom line, Vella Munn is a country hick. Born and raised in Northern California's gold country, she freely roamed the forests--and lived to write about it. She spent a total of 18 months in a city and vows to never do that again. These days she lives in rural Oregon where she happily writes about characters who, like her, love the sound of the wind in the evergreens. She occasionally runs off to the family cabin near Crater Lake where she thinks about writing. Married with two sons and an amazingly handsome grandson, she's owned by two dogs.
