Thirteen stories up. Two broken hearts. One last chance…
Surgeon Grant Sullivan’s once-perfect life lies in ruins. His daughter is gone—lost in a tragic accident he dare not allow himself to remember—and his beautiful wife now stares at him from across a legal table, insisting she wants nothing from him.
Julia Sullivan lost everything, especially her illusions about her marriage, after the accident. Her grief only seemed to drive Grant further into his emotional shell—except for the nights he turned to her in silent, furious passion. Unable to live like a ghost in her old life, she’s packed up what’s left of her broken heart and is ready to move on. Alone.
Determined to break their stalemate, Grant follows Julia onto the elevator just in time for an earthquake. Trapped for hours in a building pressure cooker of unspoken pain, he’ll do anything to remind her what she’s leaving behind, as deliciously as he can. But giving her what she needs to save their marriage is the one thing that could destroy his soul.
Warning: Heartbreak and passion ahead—desperate doctor determined to save his marriage at any cost…except for the one secret his wife will do anything to uncover.
Ohh what a great read this story is. It’s quick, easy to follow, HOT, sexy, and the plot is one that will tear at your heart. I swear it’s one that you will be connecting with. I could see it truly happening, it’s so realistic. And the actions of the characters is believable. The story is engaging and once again I’ll say Hot and Sexy. I’d highly recommend it for readers over the age of 21 who are looking for something quick, engaging, realistic, hot and satisifying. Ms. Tenorio has written a great story and has me looking for her other stories and eager to buy them.
