Breath of Scandal by Sandra Brown

Breath of Scandal by Sandra Brown Purchase:

    ON A RAINY SOUTHERN NIGHT, Jade Sperry endured a young woman’s worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could.

    But she never forgot the sleepy “company town” where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family. And she never forgot their spoiled son, who, with his two friends, changed her life forever.

    Someday, somehow, she’d return, exact a just revenge — and free herself from fear, and the powerful family that could destroy her.

    Where Sandra Brown Gets Her Ideas:

    For each book there’s a background story of how the idea first occurred to me and how I developed it into a plot. There isn’t a pattern. Sometimes the story begins with a character, sometimes with an issue or subject that interests me. At other times, I simply see a scene or hear dialogue in my head and the story begins with that.
