Richard Thorne's flaw is that in everything he does, he seeks perfection--professionally and personally. His parents had what he deemed a perfect loving relationship. And Richard will accept nothing less for himself. But he has yet to find perfection in any woman, other than in his loved and respected mother, Elise Thorne. But perfection--like beauty--is in the eye of the beholder. And Richard will find that his definition of his perfect mate changes as he seeks to find a magnificent love.
