A case of mistaken identity. A twenty-year-old mystery solved. A painful truth.
A former Marine now turned corporate business owner, Richard “Rick” Thorne never did anything half-assed. He was an all-or-nothing kind of guy. Always had been. So giving his heart to the woman he loved was a no-brainer. She owned it, no question—until she ripped it from his chest and crushed it in the palm of her hand. And left him. Three years later just when he thought he’d finally gotten her out of his system, she’s back and she needs his help. Suddenly his life is turned upside down and he’s left torn between rushing to her rescue and slamming the door in her pretty face.
She’d made the biggest mistake of her life, running away. But Nylah James is a stubborn woman and once her mind is made up there’s no turning back. No matter how deep her regret she’d vowed to stay away, until something greater than her pride forced her to change her mind. Leaving him was the hardest thing she’d ever done. The only thing harder was coming back.
