Playing Passion's Game

By Lesley Davis

Friends & Community

In most games, you play to win. In matters of the heart, you play for keeps.

Trent Williams's entire world revolves around her love of gaming. She has little time for romantic distractions and prefers instead to be with her closest friends who, like her, live for the thrill that comes from a competition well played. Happy in her job, seemingly content with her life, Trent still finds herself haunted by the past that threatens to keep her alone forever. The self-imposed solitude she places on her heart only leaves her all too aware of just how lonely she is.

All work and no play in her executive job forces Juliet Sullivan to search for a different direction in life. Disillusioned by it all, Juliet is desperate to seek out new horizons. When Trent unwittingly comes to the rescue of her younger sister, Juliet immediately finds herself drawn to Trent's silent strength and undeniable charm. Now the new direction Juliet so desperately desires seems intent on leading her straight into Trent's arms.
