She was just his private secretary - would he ever know how mach she loved him? Christa Coombe might have thought herself lucky. She spent every working day with Stephen Harrimay - the brilliant young executive - the man she adored. But Christa was only his private secretary. Each evening he left her behind for society's most glamorous women - fast, beautiful wealthy womaen - who could challenge his brilliance, and further his career. Christa watched as he led his whirlwind life with the beautiful and the rich, knowing that all she could offer was her calm, deep love. She could only watch, wait and hope for the moment Stephen would stop, and really see her for the first time... But just supposing that her best friend Barbara Lane was right, she was not the best for Stephen. This idea thrust itself like a dagger into Christa's heart.
