A new, sexy standalone from #1<i> New York Times</i> Bestseller, Vi Keeland.<br /><br />When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was...well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was <i>too young</i> for me.<br /><br />Let's back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site--one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed <i>Cunnilingus King</i> were told they'd go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn't supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating--it wasn't <i>supposed</i> to.<br /><br />Nevertheless, that's how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to <i>one date only</i>--my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn't last, but I was curious about him.<br /><br />Though, you know what they say...<i>curiosity kills the cat</i>.<br /><br />My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.<br />Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.<br />His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.<br />But...he looked <i>so familiar</i>.<br />As I got closer I realized why.<br />He was the son of the neighbor at our family's summer home.<br /><i>The boy next door</i>.<br />Only now...he was all man.<br />I hadn't seen him in years.<br />I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.<br />Which I did. <i>Until summer came</i>.<br />And guess who decided to use his family's summer home this year?

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • <i>What might have been</i>? That tantalizing question propels a woman on a cross-country adventure to reunite with the men she loved and let go, in Danielle Steel’s exhilarating new novel.</b><br /><br /> It all starts with a fall from a ladder, in a firehouse in New York City. The firehouse has been converted into a unique Manhattan home and studio where renowned photographer Madison Allen works and lives after raising three children on her own. But the accident, which happens while Maddie is sorting through long-forgotten personal mementos and photos, results in more than a broken ankle. It changes her life.<br /><br /> Spurred by old memories, the forced pause in her demanding schedule, and an argument with her daughter that leads to a rare crisis of confidence, Maddie embarks on a road trip.  She hopes to answer questions about the men she loved and might have married—but didn’t—in the years after she was left alone with three young children. Wearing a cast and driving a rented SUV, she sets off to reconnect with three very different men—one in Boston, one in Chicago, and another in Wyoming—to know once and for all if the decisions she made long ago were the right ones. Before moving forward into the future, she is compelled to confront the past.<br /><br /> As the miles and days pass, and with each new encounter, Maddie’s life comes into clearer focus and a new future takes shape. A deeply felt story about love, motherhood, family, and fate, <i>Lost and Found</i> is an irresistible new novel from America’s most dynamic storyteller.
