Tyler Harrison seems to turn everything he is involved in to gold. A young college graduate with amazing entrepreneurial skills, he begins a rapid rise to the top of the real estate world as a land developer and building contractor in the early 1960s. Tyler is proud, passionate, gorgeous, romantic, generous, and caring; he can have nearly any woman he wants—except for the one he truly loves, his high school sweetheart, Penny Kilmer. The only thing keeping him from her is his pride—or so he thinks. Intelligent, feisty, funny, and beautiful, Penny knows that Tyler still loves her, just as she has loved him since high school. Penny is a true romantic, and she hopes one day to have him back. Their sensual on-again, off-again relationship spirals toward humbling and climactic events that neither can control. As the years pass and Penny and Tyler gain in wisdom and maturity through triumphs and tragedies in their lives, gradually they make their way back together. But can it last? In this romance novel, two high school sweethearts separated by events and their own stubborn pride are involved in an off-and-on relationship when they slowly come to realize their love for each other.
