After seventeen years of hiding from life and himself, Austin Gray has returned to recover what is rightfully his. Namely, DeLanie Winters. She's nothing like the innocent she once was, but there's something deeper than her secrets staring him in the face. Until Austin figures out what it is, he's unwilling to yield. With her husband dead and the rumors finally doused, Delanie's secrets and tainted reputation can be put to rest. The last thing she needs is Austin returning with his wild ideas of taking up from where they left off. Especially since what she's been hiding is now sixteen years old. With such a bad track record, DeLanie swore she'd never need or want another man, but if Austin doesn't keep his eyes...and his hands to himself, they're about to relive the past all over again.
