Summary

Being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine. Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dotcom entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husband - first his work, and then his never-ending quest for fun, kept him constantly on the move, far away from Maxine and his family. For five years, Blake and Maxine have worked out an odd but amicable divorce, with friendly though infrequent visits, a yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they both adore. Blake enjoys his globe-trotting lifestyle - dating a succession of beautiful, famous, and very young women - while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist, a world-renowned expert on childhood trauma and adolescent suicide. Then everything changes....
For Maxine, it starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man who is everything Blake is not - mature, grounded, and present. For Blake, it begins when a devastating earthquake strikes near one of his palatial foreign homes, and he sees hundreds of orphaned children in need of shelter.
Now, Blake wants Maxine in his life again - as a partner in a humanitarian project that could change countless lives. For Maxine, the choice is clear. But Blake's sudden transformation - from carefree playboy to compassionate, responsible grown-up - raises questions she can't manage to answer...and some she's afraid to ask.
After all, Maxine is on the cusp of a new life, about to marry Charles, and almost certain that Blake Williams, a.k.a. the Rogue, is a man capable of doing anything - except changing.

Nice Job

This was a good story. My only problem is that, like many of Danielle Steel's books, the ending was less than satisfying. It just wrapped up too abruptly to be believable. But aside from that, the storyline and characters were enjoyable.

Same, same, same

Beautiful story, as they all are. Same concept, different background, similiar characters. No change to her writing. If you like her style you'll like this book. She pops out one seemingly every couple of weeks, they all read the same, but you enojy the new bookcover and hope its different. It isn't. Her married character loves, loses, finds, learns and triumps. Thanks DS, now waiting for your next book (probably in two weeks)
