One of the most acclaimed storytellers of her time, #1 New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels weaves unforgettable tales of love, family, friendship, and self-discovery. Together in one volume for the first time, here are two classic stories about following your heart - wherever it leads . . .

Rita Bellamy has had enviable success as an author, but it came at the expense of her marriage. Now she's starting over in a small lakeside cottage, slowly rebuilding the confidence that was shattered. But is the younger man next door a fun, frivolous diversion or something much more?

Moving to Washington D.C. to be with Griff should be the beginning of an exciting new chapter in Dory's life. Yet there are adjustments too, and sacrifices she never expected. And soon Dory must weigh the price of love against everything she hoped to gain . . .
