9780440208303: Maggy's Child

She was Mrs. Lyle Forrest now, the coolly elegant wife of Louisville's most prominent publisher, the slum girl whose dreams -- and nightmares -- came true the night she married the multimillionaire old enough to be her father. For twelve years Maggy played the role of beautiful, devoted wife, the burnished jewel in Lyle's crown, mother of the child he adored. She did it for David, the son who could never know the price she paid to protect him, would never see her scars...

Suddenly Maggy's hard-won control shattered when Nick King came back to claim her. It was twelve years since they'd parted, twelve years of fear and loathing at the hands of Lyle Forrest. She couldn't afford to remember the soul-searing passion she'd known so long ago in the arms of the only man she'd ever loved. She must think of David, her son, Lyle's most potent weapon, and not of the man she could never forget, Nick, who's returned to set her free...

A riveting novel of love, lust, and savagery in Kentucky's bluegrass country--a spellbinding story of a mother's sacrifice, a dynasty's power, and one man's passion to reclaim the woman who was born to be his.

About the Author:

Karen Robards is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of forty-seven full-length books and one novella. The mother of three boys, she lives in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

From Kirkus Reviews:

More paint-by-numbers romance for hard-core genre fans--the latest from the author of One Summer (1992) and Nobody's Angel (1992). Magdalena (aka Maggy) Garcia, a half-Mexican with unaccountably ``lily-white'' skin and red hair, has been trapped for over a decade in an abusive marriage (she stays, she insists, for the sake of son David). Then her gorgeous girlhood boyfriend, Nick, shows up in town. Maggy tries to fend him off, fearing the reprisals of psychotic--but rich--husband Lyle. But Nick soon realizes that Maggy is being abused, abducts her, and breaks down her defenses. After lots of formulaic sex (``He played her like a virtuoso with a prized violin''), Nick restores Maggy's old ``spitfire'' spirit. She responds by informing him that David is his son--a heavily foreshadowed disclosure. Nick stalks off, Lyle promptly steals Maggy back, and Nick saves her all over again. Meanwhile, Lyle drives a car over a cliff and tries to take Maggy with him. She survives to experience a brief idyll with David and Nick--until Lyle turns up, like the psycho killer in a B-movie, to kill Maggy and Nick and abduct David. The three survive eerily intact (Maggy sends David to a psychologist, who ``after one session...pronounced David a `remarkably resilient child'''), and unite for the happy end. A heavy-breathing, often redundant, one-note soaper. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
