Publisher Comments:

Corporate raider Matthew Farrell had come a long way from the poor, scruffy kid of Indiana's steel mills. A long way from the country club where, feeling like an outsider, he had dared to fall in love with a beautiful blonde named Meredith Bancroft, and known a once-in-a-lifetime passion and betrayal that still haunted his memory...Now world leaders courted him, the media watched his every move, and he was ready to move in on the Bancroft empire.

A cool, poised executive in her family's legendary department store chain, Meredith had once defied her father for the sexually magnetic, intense Matt Farrell — and their brief, ill-fated marriage was the disastrous outcome. Now, as the Bancroft firm is threatened by a hostile takeover, Meredith is forced to confront Matt. As tensions build between them, bittersweet memories rise to the surface, leaving them suspicious, restless, and uncertain. Will they be able to believe in each other — and grasp the tender miracle that is before them?

Synopsis:

Separated for years, lovers Matt Farrell and Meredith Bancroft are reunited when Matt's help is required to fight a hostile takeover of the Bancroft family business. "Fast-paced romantic entertainment."--USA Today.

Synopsis:

Ruthless corporate raider Matthew Farrell was poised to move in on the legendary department store empire owned by Chicago's renowned Bancroft family. In the glare of the media spotlight, it was a stunning takeover that overshadowed the electric chemistry between Matt, once a scruffy kid from steel town Indiana, and cool, sophisticated Meredith Bancroft. Their brief, ill-fated marriage sparked with thrilling sensuality — he was the outsider who dared to rock her country club world — and ended with a bitter betrayal. Now, locked in a battle that should be all business, dangerous temptations and bittersweet memories are stirring their hearts. Will they risk everything on a passion too bold to be denied?

About the Author

Regarded as one of the most beloved writers of all time in popular fiction, Judith McNaught is the author of thirteen novels with more than 30 million copies in print. The last eight of her novels have been international bestsellers and have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list, with most recently Night Whispers, which debuted at #1.

The press has had glowing praise for Ms. McNaught's work. USA Today has said, "When it comes to writing romance, Judith McNaught is in a class by herself." The Chicago Tribune said, "Judith McNaught comes close to an Edith Wharton Edge," and The Houston Chronicle wrote, "Judith McNaught's novels transcend all boundaries of the romance genre."

Ms. McNaught's first book, Whitney My Love was published as a paperback original in 1985, and won the Romantic Times Award for Best New Historical, becoming an instant classic. Double Standards and Tender Triumph, which had been published prior to Whitney My Love, were immediately re-issued upon the tremendous success of that book. Double Standards was Ms. McNaught's first contemporary romance, and Tender Triumph was selected as the Romantic Times Critic's Choice Award for Best SuperRomance.

In 1987, Judith McNaught published Once and Always, which was selected as Good Housekeeping's "Novel of the Month" (January 1987), won the Affaire de Coeur Golden Pen Certificate, and was the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award winner for Best Historical Romance. Ms. McNaught achieved her first #1 New York Times bestseller in 1988 with Something Wonderful. Each novel that followed has hit the New York Times bestseller list, they include: Kingdom of Dreams (1989); Almost Heaven (1990); Paradise (1991), which was a thirteen-week New York Times bestseller, and the first romance novel ever selected by Book-of-the-Month Club as a main selection; Perfect (1993), with which Ms. McNaught began her campaign for literacy, to which she remains committed; Until You (1994); Remember You (1996); and Night Whispers (1998), which marked Judith McNaught's entrée into romantic suspense and appeared at #1 on the New York Times Paperback Bestseller list.

In August 1999, the beloved favorite Whitney, My Love was published for the first in time in hardcover. Someone to Watch Over Me, Judith McNaught's new novel will be published by Atria Books on Feburary 18, 2003.

Prior to her career as a writer, Ms. McNaught enjoyed success in the fields of radio, motion pictures and finance. Among her varied experience, she was the first female executive producer at a CBS radio station, assistant director of a film crew, a comptroller of a major trucking company, president of a temporary employment agency and president of an executive search firm, and has been involved with a number of philanthropic endeavors.

Judith McNaught lives in Houston, Texas.
