Cynthia Gibbons doesn’t blame folks for calling her the “Ice Queen.” They don’t know the secret she’s kept for twenty years—that she once fell crazy in love with a guy who had no money, a guy who broke her heart in the worst possible way. But now Korey Walker is back in town, and Cynthia isn’t sure how much longer she can keep the biggest secret of all—that she still loves him.
With a divorce behind him, and his new auto repair shop thriving, Korey is looking to the future—until he sees Cynthia and the past comes roaring back. Even now, he doesn’t understand Cynthia’s hostility—after all, she broke his heart. He decides to ignore her—until his teenage son falls for Cynthia’s daughter. Determined to stop history from repeating itself, Korey and Cynthia will have to band together. But will it bring them closer—or destroy their lives for good?
“Seduction, beauty, boldness, scandal and secrets combine to tell a powerful story.” --RT Book Reviews
