Synopsis

Meredith Bancroft, only offspring of the ruthless president of Bancroft & Co., had pushed romance aside--all she wanted at 18 was to fill her father's male-chauvinist trotter-prints to head Bancroft. Then entered Matt Farrell, a lowly mechanic from rural Indiana.

Meredith was a mere pebble of fate, and there followed a volcanic coupling, a pregnancy, and marriage. But, alas, Meredith, back with furious Daddy, suffered a miscarriage… Then waited in vain for Matt--who believed she'd had an abortion and who wanted a divorce.

Eleven years later, Matt has risen to heights. And Meredith, still held from power by Dad, clash. There's a nasty surprise about the long-ago divorce, and Matt makes some surprising demands.

Will they never blurt out their separate versions of what happened 11 years before? Yes, but as romance-readers know, that takes time--here filled with stony silences, the biting of lips, and awesome lapses into Love. There's also a good deal of corporate takeover talk, fancy clothes, food, and digs.

故事梗概

梅雷蒂斯·班克罗夫特是冷血的班克罗夫特企业王国总裁的唯一继承人。由于必须跟随父亲盲目的爱国之情来统领家族企业,18岁的梅雷蒂斯不得不将浪漫搁置一旁。接着,马特·法雷尔出现了。他是来自印第安那乡村的一个低等技工。


梅雷蒂斯仅仅是命运的一块小石子,她与马特火速结合,怀孕,然后结了婚……然而,在其愤怒的父亲的坚持下,梅雷蒂斯流产了。她等待着马特,等来的却是一场空。马特认为是她把孩子打掉了,所以要求离婚。




十一年后,马特已拥有较高的社会地位。而梅雷蒂斯仍受父亲的控制,几近崩溃。这个已过多年的失败婚姻出现了一个令人不快的事情,马特提出了一些令人瞠目的要求。


他们是否永远不会说出各自是如何看待11年前发生的事情么?会的,但是正如浪漫小说的读者所知,这需要时间。这里满是无情的沉默,双唇紧咬,和可怕的爱情的流逝。还有的是大量的公司接管,奇特的服饰,食物和住宅。
