Product Description

Product Description

Award-winning author Laura Lee Guhrke steps back to a timeof Southern propriety -- and passion -- in this thrilling page-turner laced with heated sensuality. A lawyer is reunited with an unforgettable lady from his past -- and together, they step into a web of small-town scandal and desire.
Lily Morgan may be Shivaree, Georgia's most talked-about lady. Everyone in town knows about the bitter break-up of her marriage five years before, when Daniel Walker, her husband's tough, uncompromising lawyer, tore her reputation to shreds and left her with nothing but a wish to get even. But now something about Daniel makes her blood boil and her pulse quicken...not with righteous fury, but with passion.
Daniel has returned to Shivaree to once again match wits with Lily Morgan. The thought of a rematch with Lily delights him, for he has never forgotten her hot temper -- or her lovely looks. But when a shocking murder shakes the town, Daniel joins Lily to find a killer, and their unexpected partnership sparks something between them that they never expected -- desire. Now Daniel, the strong-willed lawyer for whom winning is everything, realizes he must win the one reward he can't live without: Lily's forgiveness -- and her love.

Synopsis

Five years after the break-up of her marriage, Lily Walker is forced into an uneasy alliance with her husband's divorce lawyer, Daniel Walker, a man who had once torn her reputation to pieces, to investigate a shocking murder. Original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Americana Romance 9 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1905 Shivaree, Georgia, Lily Morgan is the town's most talked about woman. Everybody in town talks about her bitter divorce five years earlier and the fact that she had an affair. When Daniel Walker, her ex-husband's lawyer comes back to town tounges start wagging again.
Daniel truly believed that he did the right thing by scandalizing Lily's name during her divorce from his best friend. He truly thought she had an affair. Now back in Shivaree he's having second thoughts.
Lily and Daniel clash like lightening, but that doesn't stop the feelings they find they have for eachother. When a local prostitute is murdered, Lily and Daniel work together to clear the suspect's name. In the meantime, Daniel finds that he was wrong about Lily and they also find love. The only problem is Daniel is planning on a career as a politician and that does not include a divorcee' as a wife.
This was my first book by Laura Lee Guhrke and I truly enjoyed it. I hope to read more from her in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun read 15 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1905 Georgia, attorney Daniel Walker will do anything legal to win a case for his clients. His latest victory gained an acquittal for his client, the son of a powerful person in the state. As a by-product, the prosecutor, an irate Hugh Masterson, vows vengeance on Daniel.

State powerbroker Calvin Stoddard offers to support Daniel on a run for a state senate seat if he successfully handles a legal case. Daniel agrees and immediately heads to his hometown of Shivaree where a court order has shut down the notorious but popular Shivaree Social Club due to the actions of resident Lily Morgan. Daniel represented Lily,s ex-spouse in a divorce case five-years ago that painted her as a tainted lady. They are on opposite sides of the prostitute house issue until a murder occurs. To everyone's surprise, he agrees to represent the prime suspect while she agrees to be his "legal clerk. As they work in close proximity they fall in love, but his ambitions make a permanent relationship doubtful.

Fans of historical novels will be left BREATHLESS by Laura Lee Guhrke's superb tale. The story line blends a clever who-done-it inside an Americana romance that brings the first decade of the twentieth century rural south to life. The lead protagonists are an intriguing duo who fight to end their growing love for one another before it enflames them. The support cast augments the plot by pushing it forward and adding authenticity. Readers who enjoy an entertaining Americana romance with a murder mystery to spice it up will take immense pleasure from Ms. Guhrke's delightful novel.
