When Sarah Channing's fiancé hardens his heart toward a needy child named Mairi, the New York Socialite puts her wedding on hold to locate the child's only relatives, hidden deep in the Appalachians.

Arriving at Sawback Mountain, Sarah meets Wyn, Mairi's handsome older cousin, and finds herself wishing for something she doesn't have: a glimmer of beauty.

Wyn had his fill of beautiful city-bred women during his time in Washington, DC, as a senator's aide. Yet he's impressed by Sarah, working hard to gain the love and respect of the mountain folks.

But Sarah is making mistake after mistake as she tries to use her money and influence to improve the lives of the children.

Perhaps the proud mountain folk are right: a cultured socialite, even one without beauty, has no place on their mountain or in the heart of a mountain man who's vowed to never again leave the life he loves.

Rich girl. Poor girl.
Sisters--and strangers.
Enemies--and rivals.

Two women in love with the same man.



Beautiful Park Avenue heiress, Deedee Dahlen, and Lana Bantry, abused child from the wrong side of the tracks, live in different worlds. They share a father but not an inheritance, a lover but not a commitment--and they do not know of each other's existence.



Until a loving father with a shocking secret that ends in murder--and Slash Steiner, the mysterious man with the Midas touch--bring the two women face to face in a searing confrontation.

More Love And Money reviews:

“An ideal book. Ruth Harris has done a miraculous job of entwining the lives of two women in a totally believable and fascinating way. Plausible and entertaining, Love And Money reads fast and the time frames ring true. Ruth Harris is a talented writer who has come up with a novel so entertaining and interesting you won’t have to hide if someone asks you what you’re reading.” —West Coast Review of Books

“Fast-paced, superior fiction with a zinging sense of style. A skillfully written, highly commercial “page-turner” Love And Money is also a series of carefully drawn character studies and insightful psychological portraits. 

“Love And Money focuses on three major characters. Deedee Dahlen is a million dollar heiress, ‘born late, as if she knew ahead of time how complicated her life was going to be and needed all the time she could get to prepare for coping with its difficulties.’

“Lana Bantry, Deedee’s illegitimate sister, was born ‘six weeks prematurely, as if she couldn’t wait to get out into the world and take charge.’

“Slash Steiner, a ‘man from nowhere who makes it big and becomes Deedee’s husband and Lana’s lover.

“Harris makes these characters and the joys and tragedies of their lives exciting and believable. With a narrative style that is crisply precise and descriptive, an unerring ear for dialogue and an overall tone that is strongly reminiscent of Susan Isaacs, Harris has written a terrifically satisfying ‘good read.’” —Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel

“Ruth Harris is in a class by herself!” —Literary Guild

“In this entertaining story, Harris portrays characters who try to assuage their emotional pain by amassing wealth. Harris will keep her fans engrossed as she accentuates the riskiness and unpredictability of lives obsessed with money, setting them against a backdrop of dizzying social change.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“Well-written, fast-paced and diverting.” —Library Journal
