From the back of the book:
Corporate raider Matthew Farrell had come a long way from poor, scruffy kid of Indiana’s steel mills. A long way from the country club where, feeling like an outsider, he had dared fall in lovewith a beautiful blonde named Meredith Bancroft, and known a once-in-a-lifetime passion and betrayl that still haunted his memory….Now world leaders courted him, the media watched his every move, and he was ready to move in on the Bancroft empire.
A cool, poised executive in her family’s legendary department store chain, Meredith had once defied her father for the sexually magnetic, intense Matt Farrell-and their brief, ill-fated marriage was the disastrous outcome. Now, as the Bancroft firm is threatened by a hostile takeover, Meredith is forced to confront Matt. As tensions build between them, bittersweet memories rise to the surface, leaving them suspicious, restless, and uncertain. Will they be able to believe in each other-and grasp the tender miracle that is before them?
This book was wonderful, from the first sentence to the very last. I couldn’t put it down. Super quick read and something I would re-read again just to get all the same emotions that I had felt the first time. I had my grandma read this book as well, and she loved it. Usually it takes her a few days to finish books of this length, but she finished it in only two.
