Running from Fate

Mira Anders has lost her job, damaged the professional reputation she has spent years building, and is at the end of her rope. Seeking solace, she returns to Boston, going home to the man who has been like a father to her for the last 15 years. When Pat Kelly urges her to apply for a position with his estranged son’s architectural firm she thinks he’s crazy. While once friends, she hasn’t seen or spoken to James Kelly in a very long time and they didn’t exactly part under the best of circumstances. Despite her misgivings, she finds herself applying for a job in the design department and she is hired. Her worries about her identity never materialize because James does not recognize her as the same chubby, homely girl he knew as a boy. Just grateful for the opportunity, she decides to say nothing; after all he’s just her boss.

But there is a problem: she finds herself intensely attracted to the man who had once been at the center of her adolescent fantasies. Mira must face a difficult decision: try to build a relationship that is essentially based on deceit, or tell him the truth and risk losing both her wonderful job and James all over again. Just when a solution seems in sight a dark specter from Mira’s past threatens their fragile, but deepening bond and Mira’s very life. Will they be able to overcome their doubts and trust each other before it’s too late?
