Amaryllis Ashley is tired of waiting passively at home for her husband's attention. And she is beginning to hate him for tempting her into divorce. Amy, after all, married for life.
Given the options of sleeping with his wife or sleeping on the sofa, Orion Ashley took the sofa. He would never touch her in the home she'd inherited. Orion never bargained on his wife kicking herself out of the bed, and him back into it.
Amy is convinced her husband is cheating. Guilt-ridden, Orion begs her for just a little more time. At work the next morning, he receives a call from the housekeeper that lands both him and his wife in the hospital. They leave Dallas in an uproar months later when Orion is seen racing out of a society ball with his wife tossed over his shoulder.
Battling pride and fear, the couple comes to the realization that communication and trust are two of the most important tools they'll need to build a successful life together.
