Cross My HearteBook - 2006
When Lacey Kincaid, a.k.a. heiress Lillian Dumont, decides to come out of hiding and claim her rightful inheritance at the urging of her childhood sweetheart Ty, her uncle will stop at nothing, not even murder, to keep her from getting what is rightfully hers. 100,000 first printing.
Lacey Kincaid is a classic New York success story. As the owner of Odd Jobs, she's gone from rags to riches sort of. Because Lacey's harboring a secret — she was born Lillian Dumont, and spent her childhood with a silver spoon in her mouth, until the deaths of her wealthy parents and the evil schemes of an abusive uncle forced her to take drastic measures. She'd never planned to return to her former life or her abandoned identity — but when her childhood sweetheart, Ty, resurfaces and urges her to claim her rightful inheritance, she decides that maybe being the Dumont heiress wouldn't be so bad. Lacey's uncle doesn't see it that way, though — and he's willing to do anything to stop her.
Now, it's up to Ty to protect Lacey before that silver spoon becomes a silver bullet. But if they live through this, the future's looking bright for this downtown guy and his brand-new uptown girl!
