Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Francis Ray's third novel in the Family Affair series, featuring long lost siblings who find family, friendship, forgiveness, and love.

Samantha Collins is stunned when her grandfather turns Collins Industry over to her, causing more than a bit of ill will among the other family members, especially her uncle, Evan. But nothing stuns her more than when she finds out that he has asked Dillon Montgomery to help her run the company.

Her grandfather had fired Dillon and ordered him off the company property years ago.Twelve years ago Samantha made her feelings known to Dillon and the whole thing ended in disaster and they haven't spoken since.

Working together now, even all these years later, is sure to be a disaster. Still, she needs his help if she is going to keep Collins Industry afloat. But will the prodigal son return to the empire - and the woman - who desperately need him? Will he be able to admit how much he desperately needs her?

New Fan

I listen to book 2 first which was awesome and this book was even better. I love how the characters are vulnerable due to their past but never stupid. Definitely a good book. Can't wait for book 4.

2 stories within one with love and mystery

Great story of love, mystery, excitement. When you re-listen you often find something you missed the first time you listened.

Samantha because she found her inner strength and learned to stand up for herself

Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment when she decided to go with love and not the current conditions or circumstances.
