When handsome Jordan Calhoun seems to fall in love with her, she jumps at the chance to prove her worth by helping him gain the political power he seeks. The signs are there from the beginning, but she tries to smooth things over, until finally she has to face the fact that he married her for her money and position and never loved her at all. But instead of grinding her even further down, shedding the dead weight of the man sets her free to try her wings and begin to develop a career, along with a spine. The baby they made together is her comfort--but Jordan becomes a source of anger and attempts at revenge, and she needs all the resources she's developed, as well as the love of a new man in her life, to fight off the shadow of the past....

    Good readI have been a fan of Ms Ferrarella for a long time. She has written many books and I have yet to find one I didn't like. Choices was a classic about how wealth can cause a multitude of problems but yet solve many as well. Add a money, prestige person to the pot and you get a great book.

    As romance books go, this one didn't really grab me. Shanna (the heroine) came from a family involved in politics and growing up never really felt close or cared for by her parents. She married Jordan, who wanted to use her to advance his political aspirations. She eventually caught on to the fact that he was cheating on her and had never really loved her. She divorced him and found out she was pregnant at just about the same time. Her own love of politics led her to work for her father and have a second chance to get to know him. When it is time to give birth, a cab driver delivers her baby as they are blocked in traffic and can't get to the hospital. I don't want to give everything away, so I will stop here. Although Shanna clearly loved her own daughter, her daughter really isn't developed as a character at all in the book and I would have liked to see her feature more. As far as the love interest went, it was ok, but didn't seem totally believable to me. I had no compulsion to sit and keep reading with this one - pleasant, but bland.

    I'm not really sure how to rate this one. I have never been one to really care about editing but this one kept me confused. You never knew what day,week,month or year it was. At one moment it was just weeks and then all of a sudden 1 year had passed but the book never said anything. And the her relationship with Reid had me also confused I never got to experience the romance with them. The book told me instead of letting me feel it. And why couldn't we something indicating whose pov it was. One minute we are in we are in her father head then all of sudden it's hers I was just lost and had to read the page again. Overall the story was good it's was just the lay out that wasn't very good. I think if the late would have been different we could have gotten more from the characters and the story itself could have even had a stronger ending.

    This book is true to its title. Life is all about choices, some easier than other (backing of a few million can certainly play an important role). It is easy to identify with the Shanna in her journey of finding herself as well as her parents realising the privilege of parenthood. Nice beach read.

    A time for politicsChoices always lead to changes. Finding the strength to discover who you are is absolutely the greatest and most valuable asset any person can have. The changes might hurt, but the results surpass expectations.

    Good ReadI enjoyed this book, it started off a bit slow in the first pages, but eventually picked up. I was very happy when the heroine found her voice, and things picked up from there....

    I enjoyed this political intrigue with a female lead that had to find her way out of sorrow and insecurity. Great romantic story with good characters and hope...something not found often in politics!!

    Good Story.I love this story, it was a very good read. The characters are wonderful and this book does not drag out the plots for too long. I really enjoyed this book.

    Because you have to give at least one star to a book this is all I can muster. The characters are one dimensional and not at all believable.

    Good! Started out as not-so-good but kept at it and thought it was very good.

    Middle of the road for me, maybe because I've read so many of this type of story line. Did enjoy the political aspect of the book.

    This novel has the same old, tired plot of rich girl married to a scumbag, and she find her life lacks "something." Blech!

    There were a couple of things mentioned early in the book that weren't resolved, but I'd like to read more of the books in this line.
