Judith Barnes had loved and lost when her fiancé, Miles Estey, suddenly left town under a cloud of suspicion of embezzlement. Putting that behind her, Judith became private secretary to her former childhood sweetheart, Alan Fraser, now a handsome attorney and head of the city’s bridge authority.
Judith felt herself recapturing the deep feelings she had had for Alan years ago. Then the same unscrupulous political bosses who had driven Miles from her life suddenly threatened to do the same with Alan … unless a beautiful, flamboyant society girl beat them to it. Could Judith win the man she loved against such overwhelming odds?
