The day that Ben Johnson was hired as a bodyguard for some rich widow and her kid, he never expected to be working for the woman who had abandoned him just when he had needed her the most so many years before. Damn it all, he still wanted her. Samantha Chaunce never thought she would see him again. She never thought she would have to explain why she married the rich man over the man she had sworn she once loved. And she certainly never expected to find out that her rich husband had been murdered and fingers were pointing to her former lover.
Personal conflict kicks off at the very start of Ms. Cordero’s A Chaunce of Riches, as widow Samantha Chaunce comes face to face with a man from her past – Ben Johnson. She told him she loved him oh-so-long ago, and then she departed in the arms of another.
The personal tension between them stands out even against the backdrop of suspense and intrigue – for someone murdered Samantha’s wealthy husband. Is it all a matter of money? Or is it an affair of the heart? And…unexpectedly we must now worry; either way, was it Ben?
