She'd never planned to return to her former life or her abandoned identity - but when her childhood sweetheart, Ty, resurfaces and urges her to claim her rightful inheritance, she decides that maybe being the Dumont heiress wouldn't be so bad. Lacey's uncle doesn't see it that way, though - and he's willing to do anything to stop her.
Now, it's up to Ty to protect Lacey before that silver spoon becomes a silver bullet. But if they live through this, the future's looking bright for this downtown guy and his brand-new uptown girl!

"Caliendo's tone takes on an air of sensuality during the love scenes, bringing the sizzling attraction to life. When Lacey's life is threatened, Caliendo quickens the pace and adds intensity to the narration, keeping the suspense simmering." (AudioFile)
I am an artist and I love to listen to books while I work. Books have always been an important part of my life. Audible Rocks!
The idea of this story sounded good.
If what you like is descriptions of every possible hormonal feeling between two people rather than character development and story substance this book is for you. I gave it until chapter 6 and couldn't stand it any more.
sappy romance... Carly Phillips is your girl! Any time I'm in the mood for a predictable love story I reach for Carly Phillips! The books is like a said a sappy romance... predictible in most every way and lovely to read on a day when all you want is to lose yourself in a book. I love the fast pace she writes in and how there is never a dual moment till the book is done.
I like Carlie Phillips and some of her books are not only sweet but funny. This wasn't one of her best. The romance between Lacey and Ty was somewhat well written but the side stories (mainly the one with Hunter) wasn't. There are so many directions it could have gone and the ending was rushed. It was almost like Ms Phillips got tired of writing.
I usually enjoy Carly Phillips books, but I found this story line to be dry and the sound of the narrators voice made it even worse.
