In more than fifty New York Times bestselling novels, Sandra Brown has captivated her millions of readers with stories of charismatic love and tantalizing twists of fate. In this classic tale, a woman is reunited with the man she has loved for years--and must reveal the secret that will jeopardize her chance for happiness at last. He arrived out of the blue--a flesh-and-blood phantom from the past in a sports car as sleek and sexy as Law Kincaid himself. The world-famous astronaut was as devastatingly attractive as the first time Marnie Hibbs had laid eyes on him, seventeen years before. But she well knew the perils of falling for a ladies' man like Law. And this time she had someone besides herself to protect. Law is determined to discover who is sending him anonymous letters claiming he'd fathered a son he knows nothing about. Showing up at the Hibbs's return address from the letters seemed like a step in the right direction. Marnie swears she isn't the guilty party, but when Law meets her son, it's like a one-two punch to his solar plexus. The boy is nearly the spitting image of Law. Law can't remember sleeping with Marnie--then again, he can't remember much about his crazy past. But there's more to it than that: Marnie claims the boy isn't biologically hers. As the tension between them becomes unbearable and the attraction undeniable, Marnie is forced to reveal a long-held secret...one that might cause her to lose both the boy she loves more than anyone--and the man she desires more than anything. From the Hardcover edition.
After nearly 16 years of single handedly raising her sister's child, Marnie gets a surprise visit from the unknowing birth father, a famous astronaut who bedded down her then 16 year old sister Sharon (he was 23) and produced David. Sharon died when David was 4. Apparently someone has been sending letters about David to Law, and he is there to put a stop to the potential career-ending rumors. His first reaction upon meeting Marnie? He does not recall sleeping with her.When confronted with David, the similar..
Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors. I'm sure the fact that this book is 20 years old explains some of the problems I had with it. I found Law arrogant, self-centered & thoughtless. He took over David's life without consulting Marnie on anything. He ignored the fact that she had spent 16 years being a wonderful mother to David and because of Law's lack of compassion he hurt her repeatedly & deeply. He also had a lot of nerve saying his lifestyle was "normal" when in fact, even though I am a liberal p..
I picked this up one Saturday just to pass the time, I loved it at first, but that love dwindled as the book neared the end. I liked Laws character at first; it was his actions that miffed me. Like the birthday gift, and the living arrangements. It didn't appear as though he had any regard or respect for the woman who had rearranged her life to rear his child alone. Especially at such a young age. And as a single mother myself, I have to say, I kept waiting for David (her son) to choose Marnie over Law, to ..
