Tragedy brought Maxine Sherman and Quinten Parker together years ago, until another woman stole Quinn away from her. For as long as Maxine could remember, her nights were filled with dreams of his return. That was then. Now Quinn is back as tragedy strikes his life, and he wants things to be the way they were, but Maxine has a new life, a new man…and a secret that binds her and Quinn together.
Good sense tells Maxine that she shouldn’t put her heart into the hands of a man who once left it broken in pieces — and risk losing the love and devotion of Taylor Collins, who brings her not only joy, but the kind of love she’d always longed for. But is Taylor her reality or a substitute for what she lost? As Maxine struggles against Quinn’s passionate pleas, and the old desires blaze between them, she must decide if, this time, what they have together is strong enough to last forever.
