Saxon Evanshaw had buried his past – until his sickly father and greedy stepmother dragged him back to his North Carolina home. There he was greeted by sinfully beautiful Gale Chandler, his stepbrother's widow, who held the entire estate in her hot little hands.
Gale cheered the return of the handsome prodigal son. After her loveless marriage, she and Saxon had something in common: they were both victims of the same ruthless family. Here, finally, was a kindred spirit, someone who might understand. So she welcomed him home -- with open arms and a very trusting heart!
