In this sexy reunion story by Rachael Stewart, Cain O’Connor was the family outcast—now he’s come back to claim the family business…and the woman he can’t forget. I was always the black sheep of my family. My father blatantly favoring my brother in our family’s business empire was the last straw. I had to leave, even if that meant deserting the love of my life, Alexa. What I didn’t expect was for her to betray me, too…by falling into the arms of my brother. Now my brother and father have died in an accident, and Alexa is leading our family business during the crisis. Having made my own billions, I finally have the chance to return and claim what’s rightly mine—the family business and the woman who traded me for it. But my revenge is derailed by the raging chemistry between me and Alexa, which is hotter than ever before. Working side by side with her, I struggle to control my feelings—and then I discover a secret that sheds new light on Alexa’s betrayal. But even if I bring myself to forgive her, is it too late to try again? Take control. Feel the rush.

An Oprah Book Club® selection A New York Times Notable Book "It's the novel closest to my heart…. I'm deeply moved that Oprah Winfrey has selected this novel for Oprah's Book Club, a family novel presented to Oprah's vast American family."—Joyce Carol Oates Moving away from the dark tone of her more recent masterpieces, Joyce Carol Oates turns the tale of a family struggling to cope with its fall from grace into a deeply moving and unforgettable account of the vigor of hope and the power of love to prevail over suffering.The Mulvaneys of High Point Farm in Mt. Ephraim, New York, are a large and fortunate clan, blessed with good looks, abundant charisma, and boundless promise. But over the twenty-five year span of this ambitious novel, the Mulvaneys will slide, almost imperceptibly at first, from the pinnacle of happiness, transformed by the vagaries of fate into a scattered collection of lost and lonely souls.It is the youngest son, Judd, now an adult, who attempts to piece together the fragments of the Mulvaneys' former glory, seeking to uncover and understand the secret violation that occasioned the family's tragic downfall. Each of the Mulvaneys endures some form of exile- physical or spiritual - but in the end they find a way to bridge the chasms that have opened up among them, reuniting in the spirit of love and healing.Profoundly cathartic, Oates' acclaimed novel unfolds as if, in the darkness of the human spirit, she has come upon a source of light at its core. Rarely has a writer made such a startling and inspiring statement about the value of hope and compassion. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Giving Thanks I wanted to take the time and thank all of you who stuck by me during my horrendous struggle. There have been so many people that I have come in contact with over the years, and I wanted to say I'm sorry for anything I might have done that offended or hurt you. Shortly after my husband and I met, he made a comment to me that I didn't give much merit to until now: "Don't complain about the things that you have the power to change." And I now follow that advice to my new everyday life! I also remember a wise person once told me, "It's not what you do while you're here on earth but the legacy that you leave behind!" This is the beginning of my legacy! Thank you to all my family and friends for hanging in there with me. I give my utmost apologies for anything I might have ever done to hurt you. I love you all very much! I am grateful to God every day for you and all that you have done for me! Thank you to my church family for trying to keep in touch with me, letting me know you were all still there for me! I appreciate it more than you'll ever know! I think it would be safe to say that all your prayers for me have been answered! I wanted to say thank you to Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler, and Jeff Dunham for giving me many laughs during my long struggle! I'm sure you might think it's silly, but those laughs helped me in more ways than you could ever imagine! I also want to say thank you to Marshall Mathers. You showed me to be proud of where I came from, and even though we may have been involved with some nightmarish ordeals while growing up, we are still important people in God's eyes! I want to give a special thank-you to Pink for helping me realize that surviving our struggles doesn't mean that we are damaged goods, but we are pretty freakin' incredible! For those of you who like to make mean, nasty, hurtful comments about people, please think twice before saying anything else about any one! Thank you, God, for never giving up on me even when I felt you had every right to! I have chosen you to be the first priority in my life! I love you with all my heart and soul for creating your son and sending him to die for me! That type of sacrifice to save the people you love is truly on a level that is completely mind-blowing and can never be fully appreciated as long as there are people out there who continue to deny you! People say fairy tales don't exist, and I guess I would have to agree but not because I don't think they exist but because what you did to save all of us, all your sinful people whom you created, far outweigh the happy endings in any old fairy tale! There were times when both my parents had really hurt me and let me down, but we all have our imperfections, and with that being said, I have completely forgiven them for everything! But you, my heavenly Father, have never let me down, and I know that you never will! Thank you for taking away my lifelong pain and anger, turning it into knowledge, courage, and strength! I only hope to make you proud and truly be that person you had created me to be! Thank you to everyone for reading this book. God had so many opportunities to take me out of this world, but I am praying you all realize that having the chance to read this book is exactly why he didn't!
