"the Sky's the limit. You'll have everything. I'll have you dripping in diamonds, I promise." It was a time of great hope for the men who sweated in the Oklahoma oil fields where the precious black gold gushed from the earth. It was a time of promise for: AMANTHA CARMODY Beautiful, spirited, she came from England to be with her husband, unprepared for the crudeness of the oil world...unprepared to be rich beyond dreams. DAVID CARMODY... He had only one passion. Oil. He had no time for love...only lust. CHARLIE FORBES... David's partner. He was always there for Amantha. From the moment he met her he loved her--loved her in silence for years. He did not dare to hope--until.
