No wonder Beth Volmar loved the story of Pygmalion: it was happening to her! And the transformation was making this dignified, selfless widow feel quite giddy--and girlish all over again.
Catering first to her domineering husband, then to her children, and finally, to her grandchildren and her aging but imperious mother had left Beth little time for dreams of adventure or passion. Until handsome archeologist Karim Donovan arrived in town and embarked on a crusade to push back the narrow boundaries of her life. When he insisted she accompany him to Turkey on an archeological dig--and added an ardent kiss for persuasion-- Beth could feel the seeds of a new freedom take root... and a surge of excitement that made her toes tingle. Her family could take care of themselves for a while. It was her turn now ... her turn to love again!
