Overview

Blurb:
She was gone from him forever. While on a trip to Hawaii two years ago, she married a rich old man and had a child. Now that she's a widow, fate and her determination has brought her back into his life. Why would fate be so cruel?


Excerpt:

Lucian Monteverde gazed around him with pleasure. This was his favorite time on the beach--dawn, when the sun was a misty ball of reddish orange on the horizon, slowly growing in size and brilliance.

His father, a well-known writer of historical fiction, had realized quickly that a writer could live anywhere he wished, and he liked the Florida climate and laid-back atmosphere.
Lucian wore a length of batik cloth as a pareu, tucked around his narrow waist--a habit he had acquired during his many visits to Hawaii and other Pacific islands.
