Secrets never keep for long.
After the sudden death of her husband, Silva struggles to find her way in a life that is now so different than the one she envisioned for herself. When offered the opportunity to start over in a new territory, she seizes the chance. But in order to truly start anew, Silva knows she must come clean about a secret she has held for far too long. When she arrives at her new home, Silva is met by a man she was certain she would never see again, a man that threatens to heal the heart she was certain would never be whole again.
Every day since meeting her, Marcus has thought of the mysterious woman he met at his best friend’s wedding, although it never occurred to him that she would end up as a resident of his castle. Having her near him every day is both a blessing and a curse. He wants nothing more than to win her love, but her grieving heart keeps him at bay. He knows that only time can heal her, and he’s resolved to wait as long as it takes, for one day he knows she will love him.
But his love for her may not be enough, for there is another with a secret that could tear her away from him forever. Will Silva be able to move on from her past grief and heartbreak, or will her world be turned upside down once again?
