Ambitious Dr. Andrew Douglas is always seeking more. More power. More money. More women. But when a shrewd businessman, Bob O’Malley, propositions him to bring River City Medical Center in New Orleans into a black market organ trade, he’s hesitant. How would they get away with it? What if they get caught? Would it be safe to say no?
Arianne Douglas seems to have it all. She’s conservative and proper with a happy family and a fulfilling career where she gives back to others. But when her husband’s ex-wife, brazen Dr. Millicent Douglas, discovers her deepest secret—the truth could send Arianne’s entire life crashing down around her. Millie has been on a twenty-seven-year mission to destroy her, and she’s not above using Arianne’s son, Nash, to do it.
Stoic and solemn Dr. Gregory Adams is an honorable man. Proud of the legacy passed down through his family, he takes his job as Chief Medical Officer seriously. But after discovering his best friend, Andrew, is doing something legally and ethically wrong, Gregory doesn’t know what to do. Further complicating his decision are his long-standing feelings for Andrew’s wife—his one true love.
As even more players are pulled into the tangled web of deceit and intrigue, no alliances are safe. The stakes have never been higher, and no one involved will ever be the same again.
For Elizabeth Burgess, writing is not only what she loves to do, it is freedom, salvation, and escape. It is life. Introduced to the art of words at a young age by her junior high school English teacher, she poured herself into a self-study of all things poetry and prose throughout high school and college—hoping one day to become a lyricist in Nashville. As the years passed, her dreams changed and morphed, but her love for words did not.
A nurse by trade, Elizabeth loves incorporating some medical knowledge in each book she writes. Her favorite characters are always flawed, and if you see her wearing any color other than black, you know she’s sick. Thanks to her maternal grandparents, she believes she can do anything if she sets her mind to it, and will always offer guests a glass of sweet tea.
When she’s not working on her next novel, she enjoys Saturday nights in Death Valley, listening to Fleetwood Mac on rainy days, and taking pictures of her beloved Louisiana. Elizabeth is the author of Counterplay and the Hopewell Coven series books. She lives in Northeast Louisiana’s farming country with her partner, Terri, two Catahoula Curs, Bowie and Pike, and host of spoiled cats.
