Spare Me the Drama

For two decades, Martin Leon and his wife, Jeanie, blissfully penned a daytime soap together and grew a large family before real life took a melodramatic turn. Sexy star Roxanne Hunter parlayed her soap role into a lucrative business and never looked back. As she was on the brink of having it all, the universe pulled the rug out from under her, leaving her a secret heartache. When Roxanne accepts widowed Martin’s invitation to a family birthday party, it’s only to fulfill a promise, not fall for him again. But the females in Martin’s family have other plans, and soon, Roxanne allows herself to fall into the embrace of family life and a romance with him. Can they get through fate together, or will the universe –and the past--pull the rug out from under her one more time?
