Scholar and award-winning author Faith Fiztgerald has every reason to be happy: a wealthy, charming man who adores her and a family cheering her marriage prospects. But from the moment she meets Eric’s sister, Sydney Van Allen, she knows her safe, predictable feelings for him are a shadow of what could be.
Openly lesbian and running for Senator, Sydney can only succeed if she can live down her wild past. That means no liaisons, especially with the achingly alluring woman on her brother’s arm who looks at her with confusion—and desire.
First published by Naiad Press 1996.

As always, Kallmaker is a glorious writer. She is one of the best in the sector and when you read any of her books, including this one, you will see why I say that. This is a sweet romance. It takes a while for the main characters to get together because a lot of time is spent on Faith coming to terms with who she is. It is beautifully written and starkly shows the difference between settling for what is considered ‘normal’ and what your heart really wants. I am a believer that Kallmaker is one of the greats in the genre. Go read this book. Heck, just go read all of her books.
