Overview

THE FLAME HAS FLICKERED...
Longtime bachelor Lucien Ballard gets a shock when an adolescent girl asks to use his cell phone to locate her mother in the department store, for she bears a striking resemblance to Thais Parker, the Las Vegas showgirl he'd impulsively married 15 years before during a sexually charged affair. Thais broke his heart when she insisted on having the marriage annulled. When the girl's anxious mother shows up to claim her, she's none other than Thais herself. Could their relationship possibly have a second act after such a long intermission?

BUT IT HASN'T DIED...
Showgirl turned actress Thais Copeland, nee Parker, has started over on the opposite end of the country after her painful divorce, with a new job on a popular soap opera. She never expected to see Lucien Ballard again. He soon makes it clear he still wants to light her fire, but things aren't as simple as they were 15 years ago. She has a sensitive daughter who longs for her parents to reconcile, and besides, in spite of their intense affair, Lucien is essentially a stranger to her...a stranger who still leaves her breathless with wanting. But a mere affair at this stage in her life won't cut it. Do they have what it takes to turn their burning attraction into a mature partnership?

Meet the Author

Bettye Griffin was told by her English professor that she had a gift for writing and might want to consider pursuing writing as a professional career. She promptly dropped out of college and started crafting stories...and just 22 short years later sold her first book. Bettye writes both contemporary romance and women's fiction. A native of Yonkers, New York, Bettye has also lived in Florida and Illinois, and now crafts her compelling, drama-filled tales from her home in the great dairy state of Wisconsin. Bettye thoroughly enjoys Wisconsin's contributions to the American diet and often nibbles on cheese while writing, and she celebrates a good day of writing by having a glass of the beer that made Milwaukee famous.

Bettye's first book was published in 1998. She writes contemporary romance and women's fiction. Visit Bettye's web sites at www.bettyegriffin.com and www.bunderfulbooks.com, and "like" her publisher page, Bunderful Books, on Facebook.
