After a series of bad luck, 39-year-old struggling actress Alaina Ackerman accepts her mother’s holiday invitation to come home instead of ending up homeless on the streets of New York City in November.
To no surprise to Alaina, that old harpy some call fate decides to throw more complications into her life: an abandoned puppy, a secret between her mother and sister she's not privy to, and the most complicated entanglement... Markus Klein -- a man she has spent twenty years trying to forget after the night they crossed the “just friends” line.
Carmen DeSousa's stories overflow with romance, suspense, a hint of humor sometimes and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without an emotional event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic, and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.
