Vanilla Heart Publishing
Rating: 4 Cups
Samantha Chaunce has had a lot going on with her life. First, her husband Julian passes away from a massive heart attack, and then she starts receiving threatening messages. When her firm hires a security guard, Sam figures it will at least help protect her and her eight year old son.
Ben Johnson loves his job, but he is not too happy about taking a job dealing with the wealthy widow of Chaunce Publications. Then he sees Sam and realizes his ex-girlfriend and first love is the woman he is supposed to be protecting.
Sam is stunned to realize her love for Ben never died. He seems to feel the same way, at first. But when her wealth and secrets from their past come back to rip apart their new found love, it will test not only their trust for one another, but their very lives. An unforeseen enemy, one who is closer than Sam thinks, comes forward with an evil plan to annihilate her and point the crime at Ben. Will Ben be able to stop the evildoer before it is too late to save Samantha, her son, and prove his innocence?
A Chaunce of Riches is a great read full of both pros and cons. Ms. Cordero starts the story off with enough tension in the air to crackle the pages, but it soon tapers down just a bit. However, it was not long before I found myself wrapped up in the exchange of emotions and sensual pull between Ben and Sam. When the suspense continued to build to an almost breaking point, it made this good story that much better. This is the type of novel that will have a reader knowing who the bad guy is but unwilling to put the book down, and you will not want to because you will miss out on a skillfully written story!
