Renny Knight was a rogue with a smile that could melt any woman's heart. So why did Jacqueline Train insist on denying that they were married, even if had been a marriage of convenience entered into two years before? She'd married him because he could give her the one thing she wanted from life - a child of her own, in return for giving him the ability to show married status and hence claim his inheritance. But Renny made too many emotional demands - demands Jacquie wasn't ready to accept, so she'd let him out of the pact, even though she was carrying the child he didn't know about. He had his inheritance. What more could he want?
Now, Renny has come back to claim her, panicking her even while her heart began that same, slow melt and her body ached with need. He couldn't know she'd miscarried, wouldn't understand how much he'd hurt her by accepting her decision to let him go. Yet, here he was back again and her desire for him was so strong she feared she'd be unable to refuse him. He tried to make her doubts disappear, tried with his kisses to rekindle the magic they'd once created together. But something in Jacquie couldn't trust the promises he made that he'd never leave her again. Somehow, Renny must find the key that will unlock her heart and make her his forever.
