Left at the Altar!
When Adam Brand’s first and only love Kirsten chose not to show up on their wedding day, he was devastated. When she turned up again, married to the town’s richest old man, it was almost a relief. His seething anger overpowered his heartbreak. At least, outwardly it did. Inside he never understood, and rather than be forced to see her playing trophy bride to a billionaire, he left Quinn, Texas, his family, and the Texas Brand.
But now he’s back, and Kirsten’s in trouble. Her wealthy husband has been shot dead, his blood is on her hands, and his gun bears her prints. The secrets she’s been keeping for longer than Adam has ever suspected, have finally come home to roost, and there’s only one man who can save her from the mess she’s made of her life. The one man with more cause to hate her than anyone, more cause to hate her than he even knows. And now she has no choice but to tell him the truth...about everything.
In high school, Edie Brand had been afraid to even look at Wade Armstrong. He was too hot, to smooth, and his reputation of being able to get any girl to say yes on the first date scared the daylights out of her. Now, though, a bad boy is what she needs. She’s back in town, driven out of L.A. and her lucrative modeling career by a crazed stalker who nearly killed her once. And who seems to have followed her home.
The attraction between these two burns them both, while a dangerous admirer watches, and grows angrier.
It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand.
Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.
In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.
The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
