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

SENSORY DEPRIVATION, ISOLATION, VERBAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE—A TOP SECRET CIA PSYCHIATRIC EXPERIMENT TURNS STUDENT VOLUNTEERS INTO TERRORISTS!

Zeb Marlowe, the physically scarred and invisibly wounded survivor of a top secret CIA brainwashing experiment, has begun to remake his life when Jai Jai Leland, the beautiful, intelligent widow of a man who didn't survive, asks him to help her solve the mystery of her husband's shocking and violent death.

Marlowe, struggling to resist his attraction to Jai Jai, is pulled into her quest despite his memories of trauma and abuse and the way his mind was hijacked. Together they search for psychiatrist Victor Ressid, creator of the experiments that turned student volunteers into slaves.

Meanwhile, obsessed by his own bizarre sexual appetites and sudden, unexpected access to limitless wealth, Ressid is consumed by fantasies of revenge against Marlowe, the only volunteer to defy him. 

Against an ominous background of escalating global terrorism, Marlowe and Jai Jai uncover a deadly conspiracy at the heart of government. They must risk their lives to stop a nuclear threat that will destroy the security of the entire world even as they wonder if Marlowe, against his will, has been turned into a suicide bomber. 

With a plot that hurtles forward at electric speed, BRAINWASHED is set during the paranoid 1970s of Vietnam and Watergate. The novel takes place on the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, in Damascus and Ireland, the Philippines, Canada, Washington, DC and in an underground torture chamber located on Victor Ressid's secluded private estate located near the Mexico-Belize border.

THREE WOMEN. THREE DECADES.

Spanning the years from the optimistic post-War 1940s to the Mad Men 1950s and rebellious “Make Love, Not War” 1960s, DECADES is about three generations of women who must confront the radical changes and upended expectations presented by the turbulent decades in which they lived.

Evelyn, talented but insecure, faithful to the traditional values she grew up with, is a loyal and loving wife whose marriage means everything to her.

Nick, handsome and ambitious, a chameleon who changes with the changing times, is her successful but restless husband.

Joy, their daughter, coming of age at a time of anger and rebellion, needs them both but is torn between them.

Barbara is the other woman. Younger than Evelyn, accomplished but alone, she wonders if she can have everything--including another woman's husband.

But can she? Is she willing to pay the price? And how will Evelyn handle her rebellious daughter, her straying husband and the threat to her marriage?

DECADES, sweeping in scope yet intimate in detail, is the emotional, compelling story of family and marriage, betrayal and healing.

DECADES REVIEWS:

“A brilliant book. Three generations of women are succinctly
capsuled in this novel by a writer who has all the intellect of
Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion. Rarely have
attitudes been so probingly examined—tough, trenchant, chic and
ultra-sophisticated, Ms. Harris recreates the decades in which
her heroines lived, from zoot suits and Sammy Kaye, through
Eisenhower, Elvis and poodle-cut hairdos to moon walks, Mick
Jagger and micro-minis. Readers will be entertained and few will be
able to forget what Decades has to say about men and women and the
games people play.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“A terrific novel about a singular single girl.” —Cosmopolitan

“Ruth Harris has re-created both the style and substance of three
decades of American life—from the bobby socks and innocence of
the Forties, to the crinolines and caution of the Fifties, to the
bra-less T-shirts and alienation of the Sixties.” —Book-of-the-Month Club

“Powerful. A gripping novel that depicts the lives and loves of
three generations of women.” —Women Today Book Club

“I read Decades straight through at one sitting and the more I
think about that, the more impressive the novel seems.” —Houston Post

“The songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love. Absolutely perfect!” —Publisher’s Weekly

Loretta Lost
A beloved USA Today bestseller containing the first three books in the Clarity series.

Her world has always been dark, but he might be able to change everything...

Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a violent attack to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods--where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more--the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen's demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her. Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen's grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

Clarity 2:

Helen Winters was living a lonely existence when the charming Dr. Liam Larson coaxed her out of solitude with the promise of healing her sightless eyes. She was hopeful at the prospect of gaining vision for the first time and being reunited with her family. She was also growing somewhat fond of the persuasive young doctor. For the first time in years, she was being magnetically drawn to a new friend...

Then everything came crashing down.

Plunged into a hellish nightmare, Helen is forced to face the same evils she ran away to escape so long ago. She is unprepared to have her hopes crushed and her peace destroyed. She finds herself living in constant terror and drowning in fear--and Liam's voice is the only thing that can keep her afloat. His comforting touch becomes the only light in her pitch-black darkness. Helen has always been a tough girl who relied only on herself. But this time, she can't survive alone. Due to the horrors of her past, Helen has promised herself not to trust anyone. When her life becomes unbearable, how can she trust Liam enough to let him save her?

Clarity 3:

After many years of darkness, Winter never thought that she'd be happy or safe again. Her whole world changed when she met Liam Larson, a charming young doctor determined to be her knight in shining armor. When a brutal night unleashes vicious reminders of her past, Winter must struggle to hold on to the little bit of happiness she has found.

When everything begins to fall apart, Liam's strength and kindness might not be enough to save her. Battling with the betrayal of her family, terrifying nightmares, and frequent reminders of her enemy that make daily life difficult, Winter's first instinct is to run away. She is tired of being the victim and living in a cruel, crowded city where she doesn't feel like she belongs.

But Liam promises her that if she only trusts him, he can change everything. And that's exactly what he attempts to do, starting with an operation to heal her eyes, and then her heart...
