Rebecca is the middle child of the wealthy Lear family and her life seems to be just about perfect. However, this former Miss Houston's life is far from beautiful: her husband has just left her for another woman, and her only friends are shallow social climbers. Fed up, Rebecca relocates to Austin where she spends her days volunteering for the political campaign of a family friend. Through her work she meets Matt Parrish, a handsome lawyer who dismisses her as an air-head beauty queen as quickly as she writes him off as an arrogant hotshot. Still, neither can deny the intense physical attraction that flares between them. Can this be a case of true love? This is the second book in a trilogy of contemporary romance novels "loosely based" on KING LEAR.
