Drawn together by an inexplicable magnetic attraction, Jack and Beth are thrown together by happenstance and are so drawn to each other that they feel as one.
Two Philadelphia couples, while their firstborn children were toddlers, made a pact for their families to be joined together by the marriage. The Madisons had moved to Denver with their small daughter. The distance keeps the families from seeing each other for over fifteen years. Upon reaching marriageable ages, both Jon Junior and Elizabeth resisted meeting and marrying as designed.
When Jack and Beth meet in Denver, being pulled to each other by a magnetic attraction, and want to marry, her mother becomes hysterical, distraught over her failed plan. Beth wants her mother to get to know Jack and accept their marriage, but her mother declares she will not permit it.
Should they elope? How will they handle this unusual circumstance as they and their parents, one by one, realize the truth and are sworn to secrecy?

About the Author
DuannaLee Petersen (pronounced DOO-ahna-Lee) AKA DuannaLee Petersen-Griffin and DuannaLee Post, Dee to friends and family, was born at home in the rural Mother Lode Country of California's Sierra Nevada range. Her own love-at-first-sight romance with a brief engagement and long-term marriage (twice) was the inspiration for some of her novels. Dee feels most at home in the rural Mother Lode gold-rush country of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. She delights in being a mother of two and grandmother of three. An adventurous spirit, descended on all eight lines from pioneering great-grandparents who emigrated from Europe, she has herself twice moved to distant states without a job or a home lined up in order to carve out a new life. Besides her family, Dee's interests lie in family history, church service, outdoor and water-oriented family activities, creative writing, portrait painting, various types of needle-work, reading, and animals (having a small horse ranch for about a decade). She's a NAUI scuba diver and ARRL amateur (ham) radio operator. She served on Sheriff’s Search and Rescue teams in California and in Washington and as an officer of a historical commission in Texas. A retired business professional and corporate officer, Dee now finds time to persue writing novels. She is affiliated with Brazos Writers and several internet writers groups. Dee now lives in South Dakota with her husband.
