Brokenhearted and bitter, Shadoe Sinclair vowed that he would never return to Oregon, never look back on the past that had destroyed his hopes and dreams, and never think about Lilly McFall, the woman he truly loved. Loving Lilly meant facing the truth, and Shadoe feared the truth would destroy her.
When Shadoe returned home to bury his father, Lilly knew she should ignore the handsome rogue who had hurt her once before. But while his secrets were dark and dangerous, in his arms she found an ecstasy like none she had ever imagined. Their passion was a temptation Lilly could not deny, and this time around she was determined to do whatever it took to satisfy their forbidden desire.
