Harcourts International CEO Sylvia Hansen is stunned when her company's upcoming new product line is stolen and issued at a great discount by rival Marchands. She knows immediately that the dastardly deed is the work of Aimon Thackeray. To save her firm and her reputation, Sylvia races to London where she meets with her bitterest opponent inside the company, Lord Jeremy Warmouth. After a week of struggling without finding the leak, Sylvia leads a worldwide campaign selling products at a major loss, but recouping the lead global position, saving their market share.

As Sylvia and Jeremy work closely together, they begin to develop respect for another and fall in love. However, Sylvia has many secrets that she prefers to stay buried and when someone tries to blackmail her she finds herself in a dilemma. Will she stand firm in her ethics and love and take the chance her “sordid” past will come to light or will she pay the price to hide her Louisiana background from the man she loves and the board of directors?

Readers who enjoy a strong lead female overcoming a horrendous heritage will want to read SILENT WISHES. The tale provides a deep look at the cutthroat international business world where government regulations are ignored. Though Jeremy acts at first too much as an aristocratic snob and Aimon behaves more like the nasty is more important than the bottom line, Sylvia makes the tale into a winner with her caring personality.
