Felicia had achieved all of her dreams... except for one -- Brandon! Felicia Marick's greatest regret was the day Brandon asked her to marry him. Though she was just eighteen at the time, her heart, body and soul already belonged to Brandon, the blue-eyed boy next door. But she couldn't commit herself to the life of a housewife in a small Georgia town. Without a word of farewell, Felicia left town and headed west to find her star in Hollywood. Eight years later, her sea-green eyes and golden hair were a familiar sight on the silver screen. With a successful film career and a precious five-year-old daughter, Felicia had achieved many of her dreams. It should have been easy to return to Granbury and appear in a play to benefit the Opera House in her hometown. But the job became overwhelming the minute she locked eyes with the show's director, Brandon Donnelly. Over the years, Brandon had made his own niche in the theater, receiving rave reviews from New York critics. But success had not diminished the painful wounds caused by the woman who'd once left him high and dry. A flame of longing still burned for Felicia. And if he had his way, that flame would burst into a roaring inferno of all-consuming passion.
