When he spied a cluster of lush, green pines nearby, his initial instinct was to slink away and blend into the background. To pretend he didn’t see her. But that would be the coward’s way out.Hard to believe nearly a year had passed since the accident-an accident that had left Cassie widowed at thirty-four. An accident Jonathan blamed himself for. He wished like hell he could turn back the clock. But then, hindsight was always twenty-twenty.Cassie Brennan considers alpha males totally useless, except in the world of romance novels. But when ad executive, Jonathan Carrington offers her a position as copy editor for the same ad agency her deceased husband worked for, she swallows her pride and accepts the position, fearful if she doesn’t, she and her two children will end up on welfare. Jonathan’s blustery demeanor and obsession to control things initially make Cassie’s life a living hell, but when she lands a lucrative account for the agency, his confidence in her ability abruptly shifts. To everyone’s surprise, Jonathan begins to relinquish control, allowing Cassie’s career to soar. But when the two enter into a relationship, Jonathan must make the most difficult decision of his life: should he reveal secrets about Cassie’s deceased husband that might destroy her, or sweep it all under the rug, praying she’ll never find out? Ultimately, his hand is forced. When he reveals the truth to Cassie, the result is devastating.
