Winner Takes All


Widowed, Catherine Clairolyn Clark Sinclair is forced to take charge of her deceased husband’s vast billion-dollar empire. Consumed by all that entailed, Kate delayed her dream ride from the north end of her restored ranch to the southernmost boundary, as her great-grandfather had done so many decades before. Ignoring the fact she was in her third trimester, Kate made the rugged journey. Against all odds, the shaken and badly jostled baby she was carrying was born normal and healthy. With barely a minute to spare, Kate continued dividing her time between the all-encompassing corporate demands and her emotional ties to her newborn son. Widowed, Kate was drawn to a pilot strikingly similar to her deceased husband both in looks and demeanor. Their relationship was flourishing when Kate’s life was shaken when an Academy Award winning director drugged her and attempted to rape her. Fighting off his advance, Kate was on the mend when she learned her lead senior actor suffered a near fatal heart attack. When his family ignored the older man, Kate stepped in. While caring for him Kate was devastated when Erica, her closest friend, was brutally attacked. Beaten and sexually assaulted, Erica clung to life.

Angered, Kate set as her goal to identify Erica’s attackers. Putting aside her recently acquired high fashion ways, Kate reverted to her rancher heritage and came down hard on the men and their testicles. Ignoring their smirks of accomplishment of violating a female, Kate crushed the men in the only way she knew how and didn’t stop until they were convicted. On attaining her goal, Kate learned her dream pilot had been less than faithful. Giving him the boot, Kate discovered that a man in plain view had been her real love all along. Now pregnant, Kate let’s go of the past and married the one man who treated her with kindness.
