Description

Be careful what you wish for. Samantha Henderson, faithful wife and devoted mother, is about to have her every wish granted, her every fantasy fulfilled. But in return, she and her family will pay a price, a very high price, for all this love and luxury.... It all starts when Sam's smooth-talking husband, Gunn Henderson, the King of Sales, the Chairman of Charm, is offered a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity.  The proposal: Come aboard as national sales strategist for Creative Marketing Enterprises and reap the enormous rewards--$250,000 a year in salary, country club membership, private school for the children, a beachside estate on the eastern tip of Long Island, complete with cook, caretaker, and limo driver. Sam can hardly believe the offer. It all sounds too good to be true. And it is. It most certainly is. For Sam and her family are about to meet Brady, caretaker of the estate. Brady is the perfect gentleman--thoughtful, honest, hardworking, willing to see to the Hendersons' every need, especially Sam's. But the caretaker is also a man of certain peculiarities...and a peculiar effect on Sam. There's more to Brady than meets the eye. And now, thanks to the caretaker, Sam Henderson is about to see every wish granted. But make no mistake: Sam and Gunn and their two young children are in big trouble. Their lives are about to be sliced open and placed under a microscope manned by a psychopath. But why? Who has gone to such extremes to terrorize them? The answers lie within. But know this: Someone will have to pay the price for love and luxury...in a masterful novel in which the only sin is a wish come true.show more
