These powerful Australian families share more than just history...
Fantasies and the Future
"You''ve no idea, Ava, just how many bored and neglected women there are around Sydney, and a lot of them look upon men like me as easy meat."
The guy who came to mow the lawns turned out to be as stunning as any of Ava''s fantasies, though she soon realised Vince Morelli thought she was just another rich, lonely lady looking for excitement. But, all the same, Vince''s arrival meant an end to Ava''s narrow, virginal existence.
Life was changing for Gemma, too. But maybe for the worse -- those evil rumours that Damian Campbell whispered to her about Nathan couldn''t be true...could they?
Scandals and Secrets
Celeste Campbell had lived on her hatred of Byron Whitmore for twenty years. Revenge was sweet -- until news reached her that Byron was considering remarriage. Suddenly she found she could no longer deny all those long-buried feelings for him. Worse, she knew she wouldn''t stop at desire!
Nathan, however, had convinced himself that was exactly where Gemma''s feelings for him ended. But when Gemma overheard him talking with his ex-wife, Lenore, as if they were lovers, she knew for certain just how much she had always really cared about Nathan...
Marriage and Miracles
Lust -- was that all their marriage meant? Gemma''s relationship with Nathan was in tatters, but her love for him remained intact -- she was going to win him back! However, Nathan refused to accept that the bond between them was anything but sexual attraction, and Gemma knew that his terrible past had turned his heart to stone.
She was asking for a miracle, but it was possible -- wasn''t it? -- that one could still happen now that she suspected that she was carrying Nathan''s precious child....
