THE TYCOON'S SECRET DAUGHTER by author Susan Meier is a Harlequin Romance release for June 2012.

Max Montgomery comes face to face with his ex-wife Kate unexpectedly in the hospital. And gets a surprise- his daughter! He had no idea Kate was pregnant when she walked out on him. Now to meet an eight year old daughter, he had no idea he had.

Kate Hunter had walked out on her alcoholic husband when she found out she was pregnant. She didn't want to bring a child into the environment which she had with her husband, Max. Now meeting him after eight years, dare she trust him?
Max wanted to see his daughter and be a father, could Kate trust him with her daughter? Kate realizes she has lingering feelings for her ex husband. Max is also attracted to Kate as he never had been attracted to any other woman in her absence. Can he have his family back now? He knew it had been his own fault that he lost Kate. But can he make Kate come back to him now?

THE TYCOON'S SECRET DAUGHTER is an emotional story about alcoholism and its effect on families. It dealt with the issue in a very realistic way. I liked that Max was not that arrogant and accepted the blame. And I wonder how many people would give their husband second chances as Kate did? Can a relationship really survive this addiction?

Susan Meier takes us to unexpected depths of human relationships and trust. She brings this powerful story of an alcoholic and aggressive husband and his personal relationship with his successive recovery from the addiction with realistic imaginary. And the relationship depicted between Max with their daughter, Trisha is endearing. It's a wonderfully poignant tale of old passions, second chances and everlasting love!
