Cynthia Alcott was young, beautiful, bright -- and head over heels in love with a man who was totally wrong for her. Her family and friends told her so, and even Cynthia had to admit to herself she should forget handsome, cynical Johnny Cayle -- especially when a nice guy like her boss, Rick Elder, was so readily available.
