In the sultry darkness of an Italian summer night, Patrick Ogilvie had been accused of a terrible crime, branded by a woman who identified him as her attacker. Patrick's name was cleared, but that night changed his life. And the life of his accuser, Antonia Cabot.
Now, forced to confront the man who haunts her dreams—the man she'd desired and nearly destroyed—Antonia must face her nightmare. Because Patrick isn't about to let her run…he's going to get close enough to heal the wounds of passion….
I was hoping this would be a better story as it is a continuation of Patrick’s story. His heartbreak from his first engagement and his moving on. The story got dark very quickly and I did not like how he treated the female lead Antonia. She suffered through a traumatic event and he was manipulative at times during the story. Made me so mad. I had to finish reading it but not a good Charlotte Lamb story at all.
