Book Description

14 Aug 2008
Michelle thought she'd lost everything she cared about when she was 17. That was the summer her world-famous, Hollywood legend of a father finally summoned her to spend a summer with him on his ranch in Montana--to get to know each other. Though he still seemed an unapproachable star, she loved the ranch and her life there. She also discovered Sam that summer, just another cow hand on the ranch, but to Michelle he was the man she had always dreamed of, the lover who would make all her dreams come true. Until her father finds out about their affair and not only fires Sam, banishing him back to the wrong side of the tracks, but destroys his family as well in one mighty blow. Pregnant and heartbroken, Michelle flees to a new life in Seattle. There she is successful and safe--safe from love, safe from hurt. But her son is lost to her, a troubled teen on the verge of self-destruction, a boy who blames her for the absence of his father and grandfather. And then one day her father calls to tell her he is dying. He has only one chance to live--if she will donate a kidney to save him. And she goes, resolved to save her father, terrified to face Sam, but driven by desperation to save her son. To do that, she must face all the secrets of the past and find a way to heal the scars and love again.

More About the Author

I like to believe I am the person my dogs think I am.

I phone my parents every day, as they are elderly and adorable, and they read me stories every day of my freakishly normal childhood. I was a writer before I learned to read, by creating scribbles on paper and dictating the stories to my saintly mother. You can see examples here:

Untold eons later, I still read and write everyday and I've gotten very good at it. I live in a ridiculously gorgeous place in the world--an island in Puget Sound, Washington where we have a lot of the same flowers you grow in the UK. But bigger slugs. Much bigger slugs.

I have lots more to tell you, so please join me on Facebook and check out pictures of my dogs and tell me what's on your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wiggs first contemporary novel 17 Aug 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is apparently the first contemporary romance written by Wiggs. I have enjoyed all her contemporary novels, but do not like her historical novels much.

Here we have Michelle who is a 35 year old single mother with a difficult 16 year old teenage son. She designs adverts and is due to be made a partner of the agency she works for in Seattle. She is also in a relationship with a man she has known for 3 years, who her son dislikes.

Her mother dies when Michelle is 18 and her father, an ex movi star, invites her to his Montana ranch to live. There she meets Sam an 18 year old ranch hand and they fall in love. Problem is, her father Gavin, feels that Sam is not good enough for his daughter. His mother is a drunk and a drifter, who Sam has always had to look after, not the other way around. Therefore the premise is that Sam will never amount to much. Michelle is a budding artist, who just wants to go to art college and paint.

Michelle discovers that she is pregnant and Sam and his mother are no-where to be found. After a less than sympathetic discussion with her father, Michelle leaves the ranch and is estranged from him for 17 years. She heads for Seattle, eventually gets a job with the ad agency and never creatively paints again. Her life is concerned with building a home for her son and protecting him from the media.

17 years later she discovers that her father is seriously ill and heads back to the ranch in Montana, dragging her surly, reluctant son with her. The day they arrive, her son backs her car into Sam's truck. After the initial shock of the two meeting again, Sam comes to a deal that Cody can work off the cost of the repair of the truck by working at Sam's horse ranch.
