Wealthy heiress Kristine Kelly made her husband her whole world. Under the spell of his charisma, she followed him around the globe during his military career - as his adoring wife and the mother of his three children. Kristine didn't see what everyone else did: that handsome, sexy Logan Kelly was a manipulator and a user. As Logan final tour of duty was winding down, Kristine returned alone with their children to Leesburg, Virginia, to the grand old house and acreage she inherited from her parents. Logan promised to join them in a few weeks, for a Christmas that was to usher in their life as civilians. Only Logan never came back. Instead he vanished, along with the eight-million-dollar trust fund Kristine had naively given him the power to control. Just when Kristine's life was at its lowest point, banker Aaron Dunwoodie came into her life to offer passion, a strong shoulder to lean on, and a relationship to believe in. But a woman once fooled is twice wary, and very vulnerable. There were still too may questions Kristine needed to answer before she could commit her heart again: what really happened to Logan...what did she truly want for herself...and what would she do if Logan - a dangerous, seductive, and yet irresistible man - walked back into her life?
