He promised her the world, then left with no explanation.
The only guy Rose had ever really loved turned out to be just one more person to let her down.
When he returns years later as a young widower with a child, she isn't sure she can forgive. She certainly can't forget. Josh was the guy she'd trusted, who'd made promises, and then disappointed her like so many others had. He's also the guy whose smile still melts her heart.
For years, Josh avoided returning to Virginia, where his family business was a mess and the woman he loves probably wants his balls in a vise. A necessary meeting and a nephew on the way make it the perfect time to get closure with Rose. He needs to explain where he went wrong. Maybe he can get her to forgive. Or maybe he'll wind up on the business end of her classy, high-heeled shoe.
