"Does she have anything left to give?"
Ann Davies was always giving away her heartto her therapy patients, and to the dolphins she used to help them. For any stray kid that needed a home, she opened her arms in welcome. She never hesitated to give herself to anyone who asked. Until Hank Riley. The big contractor demanded everythingher body, her heart, her life.
Part of her wanted to give it all to him. She craved being desired, being cared forafter all, what had she ever done for herself? But another part feared everything he stood forlosing control, throwing away logic, living for the moment, surrendering. If she allowed herself to do that, what would be left when he walked away?

About the Author
With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than one hundred books in that distinctive setting, whether her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She s also especially partial to small towns, wherever they may be. With her Chesapeake Shores series, Woods has created a fictional setting on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, an area not that far from her Virginia home and yet another area dear to her heart. One of her cousins, in fact, was one of the original authors of the Chesapeake Bay Act, designed to preserve this vast estuary. Sherryl is a member of Novelists Inc. and Sisters in Crime. She divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home with its lighthouse view in Key Biscayne, Florida. Wherever I am, if there s no water in sight, I get a little antsy, she says. Sherryl also loves hearing from readers.
