The Lovells had everything: demanding and absorbing careers, two teenage children, a lifestyle of enviable affluence. And they still had their youth. But for sixteen years they knew their most treasured dreams had been put aside in deference to others' needs. Now, before it was too late, they knew they had to act. And so Elizabeth and Matt risk everything to buy the newspaper they'd always longed to own, rekindling both their youthful ambitions and the passions of their marriage. Yet in their new-found paradise of power, glamour and wealth they meet temptations that never before existed in their small, private world. And the one thing they both desperately need is fast slipping out of reach - each other...

About the Author:

Judith Barnard and Michael Fain, a husband and wife writing team, live in Chicago and Aspen, Colorado. All their novels have been bestsellers, both in Britain and America.

From Publishers Weekly:

Honor, love and corruption provide the themes for the new novel by the husband/wife team who wrote the popular Deceptions and Possessions. On their wedding day, Elizabeth and Matt Lovell are forced to "temporarily" shelve their bright dreams of a future in journalism and take over a family business in Santa Fe. Sixteen years later, with two teenagers and a house to support, the Lovells gamble their assets on revitalizing a failing weekly paper. Elizabeth pours her considerable talent into writing a column, "Private Affairs," but Matt's seething ambition is stymied until Keegan Rourke, a wealthy businessman, gives him the helm of a multimillion dollar newspaper chain. Reveling in the view at the top, Matt refuses to see that his integrity is threatened by Rourke's control of the political agenda, and Elizabeth's outspoken distaste for Rourke drives a wedge between them. As his wife's fame snowballs (her column now has national syndication) Matt succumbs to a fast-lane lifestyle, and their relationship crumbles. Curiously flat descriptions of the good life and padded dialogue slow the action, though glitz-and-greed fans may find enough to interest them as the scenes shift from Santa Fe to Houston, L.A. and the ubiquitous hot tubs of Aspen.
