SOUTHERN BELLE by FIONA HOOD-STEWART
Elm MacBride belongs to a world of wealth, politics
and Southern hospitality. But when her husband, a self-
absorbed politician who will stop at nothing to seize
power, betrays her, Elm flees Savannah to her old friend's
chalet in the heart of Switzerland.
Meeting a beautiful woman on the ski slopes is the last
thing Irishman Johnny Graney thought would happen when he
agreed to a family vacation in Gstaad. After all, no woman
has been able to capture his heart since the terrible day
his young wife was killed. But there's something
intriguing about Elm MacBride, in whom he senses an
incredible strength. And Elm finds herself equally drawn
to Johnny's passion for his home, the Thoroughbred horses
he raisesand for her.
But the ties Elm has to the world of old politics are not
easily severed and she finds herself an unwilling pawn in
her husband's game of power, forced to maintain
appearances with a man determined to control her every
move. And when his desperate actions threaten to destroy
her, Johnny must save not only their love, but Elm's very
Southern Belle has not yet been reviewed.
