MERGER... OR A MARRIAGE? by RaeAnne Thayne
(originally published June 2008 in Silhouette Special Edition in mass market paperback and eBook)
To snag a coveted promotion, financial whiz Anna Wilder has to close one last important deal: the takeover of her hometown hospital, Walnut River General. Black sheep Anna never felt like she fit in to the respected Wilder clan, and now her job is making the proposed merger personal—especially after she meets her opponent in the boardroom!
Richard Green is the savvy attorney—and ex-love—determined to foil her plans. After one unbelievable kiss years ago, Anna ran far away from her home, her insecurities and the man who made her pulse quicken. But perhaps her return is a second chance in disguise. Can Richard convince Anna that this merger is bad business…and take over her heart instead?
FREE BONUS STORY INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME: A MATTER OF THE HEART by USA TODAY bestselling author Patricia Davids (originally published October 2008 in Love Inspired #464 in mass market paperback and eBook)
I'm not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer. Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged. After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist. Through it all --- through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor --- I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love. I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try --- their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 40 books later, I've come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the "that's-it!" feeling I get when a story is flowing. I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains. Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can't imagine my life any other way. I love to hear from readers.
