Crosspoints a Novel of Choice free pdf "A psychological thriller. . . richly drawn characters. . . an innovative, powerfully motivational novel." -Dr. Michael J. Hurd, psychologist and nationally syndicated talk show host What happens when your work and your love clash with your deepest values? Leon Skillman is a rich and renowned American sculptor. Cynical, smart, handsome, and glib, he's the darling of socialites, the press, art critics, and gossip columnists. But when he meets Tara Niforous, a highly challenging Greek-American archaeologist, his smug existence is shattered-and conflicts long buried in his soul boil to the surface. Tara is an idealist who lives for her ancient bronze and marble "gods." But she falls irresistibly in love with Leon, who looks and acts like one in the flesh. Meanwhile, Dimitrios Kokonas-Tara's older employer at the Athens museum where she works-has for years been secretly in love with his protege. Intensely romantic yet painfully shy, Dimitrios vows at last to reveal his passion to Tara. . . but now he must challenge a young god for the woman he adores. Set in Manhattan's fast-paced, controversial art world with exotic forays to Greece, Turkey, and Palm Beach, CROSSPOINTS is unlike any other romantic suspense novel because of its thought-provoking ideas and perceptive insights. It explores not only the tangled conflicts of the human heart but also the clashing values that lie at their core. It's an unforgettable love story that simultaneously unveils the hidden worlds of art, archaeology, family, religion, and high society-worlds where the rare quest for noble ideals must overcome the raw pull of sex, drugs, money, fame...and sometimes, of love itself. CROSSPOINTS is a story about Choice-not only the choices faced by three strong-willed people ensnared in a mind-and-heart-gripping romantic triangle but also conflicts between and within secondary characters as well. Choices: the very kind of choices we all face in real life...and their profound consequences for our own personal and professional lives."
