Set in motion by a long-ago betrayal, LOVE AND MONEY is about two sisters who do not know of each other's existence. Deedee Dahlen and Lana Bantry share a father but not an inheritance, a family but not a legacy, a lover but not a commitment.
Deedee, a socialite born with a silver spoon, is rich and beautiful, loved and celebrated. Lana, the illegitimate child of a brief encounter, grows up ignored and resented--until she forces the world to pay attention.
Deedee and Lana, sisters and strangers, might never have met until their worlds collide when Slash Steiner, the glamorous and dynamic man from nowhere, marries one and falls in love with the other. And when murder brings the two women--sisters and strangers--face to face.
