You’ve heard it said … Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned. - William Congreve, English playwright Dumped by her spouse of seventeen years, Annette McKellop has no choice but to adjust to life on her own. An accomplished social worker, she can’t help but see the irony of treating clients who live parallel lives, disrupted by cheating men who leave broken families behind. Not that she intends to suck up her ex-husband’s betrayal. Her plans for revenge start out brilliantly, but instead of striking a blow for all wronged females, Annette’s quest to get even with Xavier is all-consuming and leads down avenues where even the most reckless souls won’t go. Until she meets Roderick Minto—a man who is off limits. Her role as counselor to his daughter prohibits anything more than a platonic relationship, but Roderick has other ideas. As their relationship deepens and she does what is taboo, Annette questions the direction of her moral compass. Should she follow her heart and Roderick’s leading? Is losing a second chance at love worth the relentless pursuit of a man who has moved on and isn’t coming back?
