Not yet rated | write a review
Ruby Maxwell has what every young woman dreams of: a glamorous job hosting a successful talk show, a penthouse on Fifth Avenue, and a boyfriend who only wants to put a Tiffany diamond on her finger. But she also has unsettling dreams about the Appalachian home she ran away from at age seventeen, dreams that make it impossible for her to find peace -- or love. When a reporter inadvertently uncovers her secret past, he sets in motion a chain of events that place Ruby in the harsh spotlight of public opinion and threaten to destroy the life she has built for herself.

As her two worlds collide, Ruby is haunted by the memory of the man she once loved and cannot forget, the idealist who saw more in her than she saw in herself. And even as she faces her mistakes, she tries to believe the fortune cookie adage that she carries with her at all times: "Love does no wrong that can''t be made right."

From Our Editors

Ruby Maxwell has it all -- a successful career as a talk show host, wealth, a beautiful home and the love of a devoted man. Yet, she is haunted by her past and forced to confront it when a reporter brings it into the public eye. Facing once again the small-town world she ran away from as a teenager, Ruby remembers the man she once loved, who loved her more than she loved herself. Because I Wanted You is Annie Garrett’s second novel.
