Romance is in the air in this next book in the LOVE in the USA, The Hesters series!

Elaine Hester had it all but while standing at the window, gazing out over the west side of LA, she never felt so unfulfilled.  She was the principal owner of one of the most prestigious talent agencies in LA. If that couldn't make her happy, then what? Then she remembered her younger sister's wedding invitation. Elaine had never pictured a scenario where Sonja would be married before she was. She was happy for her sister, but it still drove her nuts.  On top of that, no one who worked for her liked her. Her last boyfriend would've been her fourth try at sealing the deal at the altar, but he had betrayed her in the worst way. Now she was afraid she would be alone for the rest of her life and if that was the case then why try anymore? Elaine was done with looking for love, which meant she was ready to own the world and make it her bitch, starting with her first meeting of the day with a guy, who had become an inconvenient problem she hadn't seen coming. 

Zachary Benjamin was a busy man. And frankly, when it came to women, he had no time for them. His days were too filled with making money by closing deals. But when his family suffers a loss, he finds himself in a precarious situation, and he's ready to do whatever it takes to keep his life exactly the way it is. When Zach walked into Elaine Hester's office that morning he had one goal in mind, that was until their eyes met and he felt something inside he never felt before.  Suddenly he threw all his plans out the window.

The past, present and future merge in this final installment of the LOVE in the USA series.

It looks like we made it. 

Belmont and I were committed after one intense week four years ago. We fell for each other fast but reality set in even faster. I found him entitled and overbearing without giving me room to breathe and be myself. He found me cold and unaffected, a person who couldn’t express what she needed because all I wanted was to cherish the pain of my brother’s death.Then I gave birth to our first child, and we lost her. We spiraled deeper down the rabbit hole. But two people don’t come together the way we did for nothing. Belmont and I were meant to be. So with a little help from the ones we love, we worked like hell to hold on to the things that brought us together in the first place, and worked out the issues that were pulling us apart. 

We have a son now and he is magnificent. Our love for each other has ripened into a sweet, lasting happily ever after.

Until one day Belmont went missing without a trace.
