When she dismisses him as a client because of their mutual attraction, he begins to believe she is very different from the wife who left him…very different and very desirable. Can a caring touch lead to love and passion for a lifetime?
Skye Delaney also learned that marriage doesn’t always live up to expectations. Her ex-husband hadn’t even found time to be by her side after her miscarriage let alone try to understand their loss.

And as a man…he shakes her calm and makes her believe dreams can come true.
