Sam Martin just can't catch a break.
A single mother with an ex-husband who won't take no for an answer, she's seen all her dreams shattered one by one. But it takes the death of her best friend to make Sam realize that she's got to take charge of her life once and for all, even if it's going to be the hardest thing she'll ever do. For when one's life is met by one disappointment after another - from growing up with a drug-addicted mother and moving from foster home after foster home - how can she expect anything else?
But for her son's sake, Sam knows she has to try...
When she meets community doctor Erik Maystrom and his widowed sister, Olivia, they show her a world filled with possibilities, from returning to her art to a life filled with love and family. It's a whole new world for Sam and her son, but will she welcome it with open arms or will she let the pain of her past take over only because it's the only thing she knows?
Liz grew up devouring fairy tales and her mother's book collection (don't tell her!) that included Harold Robbins, James Clavell, and Colleen McCullough. Although she studied Journalism in college, she discovered that she preferred writing fiction and so these days, that's what she does. She writes women's fiction and romance, contemporary and historical.
