Armed with a masters degree in writing, she has ambitions of working for a major news publication. But the job market is tight, and after a while Ventura realizes she can't be that picky.

So his attraction to her is beside the point. But when Ventura becomes enmeshed in his family and Richard finds himself losing his heart, is there a way to secure a happy ending?

When James finally locates the woman who owns his heart, learning that she remembers nothing of their life together is both a curse and a blessing.
Can James remind her of all the joy they shared and make her fall in love with him again?
Before her memory of his mistakes returns…and Bella stays away forever?

“A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman (Emily) to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”
