Wealthy, cutthroat entrepreneur, Nick Turner, has rightfully earned his reputation as a shrewd businessman with little room for mercy. Known for his women, heart-stopping good looks and ruthless tendencies, most people would never believe he was once a Catholic priest; a past Nick refuses to discuss...until Sunny Devereux enters his life. The irresistible, high-spirited pastry chef quickly becomes a conquest for Nick, who always gets what he wants. But he soon learns that Sunny knows more about his past than originally thought. Could his latest bedmate be the same teenaged girl from twelve long years ago who accused Father Turner of rape and ultimately caused his fall from grace? And if so, what are her motives now?
Sunny Devereux knows what she wants: to achieve greatness in the culinary arts and to remain independent of negative influence. Once the puppet of a charismatic cult leader, Asaph Josiah, Sunny is determined to rise above her mistakes from the past. But, once again, fate has delivered her into the hands of the two men who won't allow her to forget...or let go of...her guilt. Her struggle to resist both Nick and Josiah—devout rivals who vow to destroy one another—only intensifies the men's desire to control her. Who can she trust? Who does she fear most? The manipulative, self-professed "prophet" with the power to bend even the strongest will...or the merciless ex-priest with the power to crush her heart?
