The emotional landscape of Laura Andros's heart was already strewn with mines of tragedy when she met the incredibly rich and attractive Roger Ambler. How wonderful that he wooed her with such glittering symbols of endearment. How wonderful that his passionate declarations and honorable intentions came at the time she needed them most. But soon things were not so wonderful - new dangers were attending her new love. Too soon Laura realized she was at the mercy of a master manipulator who used cunning seduction as a weapon of control. Too soon she understood how Roger's need for total domination in the bedroom extended to his relentless, voyeuristic drive to learn every minute detail of her past - including her dark, carefully guarded secret. Too soon she realized she had made the deadliest mistake a woman blinded by love could make. She had to get away. But even when she escaped this prison-like relationship and met a very different kind of man who brought joy into her life, the brilliantly calculating, obsessively jealous Roger, burning with revenge, never stopped plotting his endgame - a terrifying replay of Laura's secret past.
