The Pit and the Passion

She held her gaze steady, mainly so she could delve deep, deep into those chocolate eyes. Together with his sharp, angular nose and intense, almost predatory, expression, he reminded her of a peregrine falcon on the hunt.

New and Improved Blurb for Lapses of Memory

I've been fiddling with the blurb for Lapses of Memory--since it really is two stories in one it's a bit difficult to give equal weight to each romance without getting too far into the weeds. Here's my new blurb--I'd appreciate comments! 

Lapses of Memory is a novel in which two romances intertwine as a mother recounts her life-long love affair while her daughter juggles two lovers.  The story follows the exploits of rival journalists Sydney Bellek and Elian Davies as they travel the globe reporting on world catastrophes. In one encounter they find themselves embroiled in the revolution in Iran. A few years later, attempting to scoop each other on the Lebanese Civil War, they’re kidnapped and only barely escape. Their love is reignited each time they meet, but in the long years following each encounter Sydney forgets him. For his part, Elian knows from the age of seven that they are meant for each other. Only after surviving wars, revolutions, and years of separation does she realize they are meant for each other, but in a twist of fate it is now Elian who has forgotten her. Will he regain his memory and remember her or will their new love be enough to replace the old one?

eanwhile,  their daughter Olivia must deal with her own dilemma—how to choose between the rich and dashing Frenchman Remy de Beaumec who wants to take her around the world, and the steady, quiet American Benjamin Knox who only wants to make her happy. Sydney watches, waits, and hopes her daughter will make the right choice.
