Contemporary Series Romance
Charleston, South Carolina – Present Day
Jade Nolan's life falls apart after she takes a DNA test for fun and learns that the family, she thought she was a part of, isn't really hers. It appears that when she was born, someone switched her with another baby. Of course, the hospital was contacted, as well as the media, and it's the hospital that hires security specialist CEO Harley Dalton to investigate. Harley grew up in Charleston and dated Jade in high school. He once thought that they had a future together, but she unceremoniously broke up with him and later married another man. Harley shows up at her house one day to interview her about the baby switch, and one look at Jade has his old feelings for her resurfacing.
Jade is stunned to not only see Harley, but how successful he has turned out. When they dated in high school, she was under a lot of pressure from her parents to break things off because he was a “bad boy” and she had plans to go to college and make something of herself. So, to set them both free, she broke off with him and married the man she thought would be right for her. Alas, her husband is now her ex, and he left her life a mess. Harley's reappearance in Jade's life stirs up those old feelings, but dare they act upon them while he's in town? After some threats against Jade happen, Harley moves in with her, where he's soon occupying her bed. Will they reconcile and see if they can build a future together? What about the baby switch—who did it and where are Jade's real parents?
Reunion romances like FROM MISTAKE TO MILLIONS are always fun to read because the couple knows each other from their past and it doesn't take long for them to realize they're still attracted to each other. For Jade and Harley, their reunion is under extenuating circumstances as she is reeling from the knowledge that her true parentage is in doubt. While Jade would like to know her real parents, would doing so just open up a can of worms? At first, Harley isn't sure how Jade feels about him, but she soon makes it clear that she still wants him. Though, their careers are different, and they live in separate cities (he is based in Washington, DC). Can they make it work?
Meanwhile, the investigation is on to find out which baby Jade was switched with. Harley quickly rules out all but one family, which of course are the people who won't return his calls. Turns out they are a mega-rich family. Could Jade be an heiress? What about their daughter, Morgan? Does Morgan have an inkling that her parents aren't really her parents? And why is Jade being threatened? For the answers to all these burning questions, grab a copy of FROM MISTAKE TO MILLIONS. It is an intriguing and entertaining tale you won't want to miss.
