BEYOND RAPTURE is the sequel to Beverly Clark's previous novel "A Twist of Fate." In this enticing tale of romance, readers are given a more detailed glimpse into the life of the devastatingly handsome Dr. Phillip Cardoneaux. The character development is superb and the storyline is one that is sure to please. And for those readers who are wondering, Phillip's mother Suzette is still trying to maintain control. Fans of Ms. Clark will not be disappointed; BEYOND RAPTURE is a wonderful novel.
In the sequel to A TWIST OF FATE, Phillip, Nicholas Cardoneax's older brother, is about to leave the hospital after his shift and in comes Lily, a model who has collapsed from exhaustion. After treating her, she is told she needs rest and relaxation, and Phillip offers his guest house. If you read A TWIST OF FATE, then you know Mama Cardoneax is not happy with this. Unfortunatly, the story could have been better if the week plotline, or catalyst was not Lily's own parents. Lily, a biracial by product of an interracial relationship, feels that her parents aren't the role models for an happy relationship with white men, period. That bothered me since our heroine can pass for white. Which makes me wonder why Phillip and Nicks mother didn't like her?
