She was terrifyingly alone on a Texas highway, about to deliver her first child, when a rugged stranger in a pickup truck stopped to help her. Leigh Bransom had lost her husband eight months before when he was tragically killed on the job. Now a fateful meeting on a lonesome highway brought a new man into her life - one with secrets and the power to make her lonely once again.
A man who pursued a dangerous business, Chad Dillon kept his past a mystery. He was determined to make Leigh care for him, but there were no guarantees that his love could protect her from the very thing she feared most.

Since discovering Sandra Brown on Audible, I have loved this author. Shadows of Yesterday is the best of all I have read so far. The narrator's voice suits the characters, who are portrayed sympathetically and one feels part of the story as it unfolds. I listen to Audio books in bed and this one has been my first choice since I received it a month ago. I shall be buying Sandra Brown Romances as long as they are available on Audio.
"A Little Dated."
Shadows of Yesterday was originally published under the title of Relentless Desire in 1983. I hadn't realised it had been written that long ago until listening to the description of an outfit Leigh was wearing during a Christmas celebration and I had some rather disturbing flashbacks to the '80s (oh the horror!). I couldn't help but think that the story could have done with a bit of a revamp before being republished, to address the obvious changes in fashion (note to self, if ever I write a book never go into excessive fashion detail if attempting to write something not set in a specific time) and the leaps in communication technology.
I purchased this on sale, but even if I had paid full price I'd still have been happy that I had obtained this story. Joyce Bean was an excellent narrator.
I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet, not too complicated and easy to listen to. The narrator, Joyce Bean is one of my favorites. I highly recommend this book.
"Light reading, enjoyable but perdictable"
I grew up in Texas so I truly appreciate Sandra Brown's stories that take place is West Texas. The story is good. I liked all of the characters, but I wish some times that Sandra wouldn't repeat thoughts so much. Joyce Bean has such a way of bringing characters alive.
"One of Sandra Brown's First Books - Great!"
I have too many books...definitely in the top 30. A good book but there are so many!
Chad-he is mysterious, manly and all the man a woman could want and then some.
Sure, she was good but nothing outstanding.
Yes and I did.
The description should tell prospective listeners that this is one of Sandra Brown's earliest works and is a bit dated. There is a forward once you begin the book, but by then you've purchased it - and hold on - there's a lot more fashion discussion than sex!
Take out the excessive love scenes. Too much description, takes away from the imagination!
Actually, the beginning grabs your attention.The story line is interesting.
It was a decent story... but too melodramatic for my taste. Get this one on a good sale and you won't feel like you wasted your money...
