Documentary filmmaker Natasha Lawrence shows the subject of her latest project rock superstar Ford Vincent a clip she found from five years ago; just prior to his rise to music royalty status.  Natasha says that he is great every time he performs, but Ford was incredibly special that night.  By the way he looks at the screen now and on the video at the woman; Natasha encourages him to go after love.

Ford thinks back to when he and Mia Sullivan fell in love in Seattle, but she refused to accompany him on the road so their relationship ended when he left town.  Mature he realizes how stupid his demands with no compromise were and being on the highest level of the music pantheon pales next to being with his beloved Mia.  Thus he returns to Washington State prepared to sacrifice his career for his Mia.

The eleventh Sullivan romance (see Kissing Under the Mistletoe) is a marvelous second chance contemporary.  The lead couple is a fantastic pairing of opposites who struggle to find a compromise that will allow them to continue their respective vocations yet be together.  The Sullivan brood welcomes him and embraces their relationship while readers will sing “It must be your love or no love at all” (Etta James).
