Sandra Brown, author of more than forty New York Times bestsellers, explores how an ambitious executive-whose lonely personal life clashes with her career success-discovers that the business of love means taking the biggest risks of all. SEDUCTION by DESIGN Hailey Ashton projects an image that she's on top of everything, but no one realizes that she lives a life of quiet emptiness -- not ready to have a relationship, not willing to give herself body and soul to a man. Never able to compete with her younger sister, the thoughtless beauty of the family, Hailey opted to be the "good girl." But when she meets Tyler Scott -- her rich, attractive new boss -- she longs to be anything but good. She wants to be chic, smart, and savvy. Tyler is self-assured with women. But when it comes to being a father, he's got a lot to learn. Hailey Ashton seems perfect. His attraction to her is so powerful he wants her in his arms -- as well as in his daughter's life. In Seduction by Design, Hailey and Tyler discover that relationships don't happen on demand -- and trust must be earned as Hailey faces the challenges that forever change what a woman thinks, who she is, whom she loves.
