She was Mrs. Lyle Forrest now, the coolly elegant wife of Louisville's most prominent publisher, the slum girl whose dreams -- and nightmares -- came true the night she married the multimillionaire old enough to be her father. For twelve years Maggy played the role of beautiful, devoted wife, the burnished jewel in Lyle's crown, mother of the child he adored. She did it for David, the son who could never know the price she paid to protect him, would never see her scars...

Suddenly Maggy's hard-won control shattered when Nick King came back to claim her. It was twelve years since they'd parted, twelve years of fear and loathing at the hands of Lyle Forrest. She couldn't afford to remember the soul-searing passion she'd known so long ago in the arms of the only man she'd ever loved. She must think of David, her son, Lyle's most potent weapon, and not of the man she could never forget, Nick, who's returned to set her free...

A riveting novel of love, lust, and savagery in Kentucky's bluegrass country--a spellbinding story of a mother's sacrifice, a dynasty's power, and one man's passion to reclaim the woman who was born to be his.

From the Paperback edition.

Nick remained a elusive character throughout much of the read as little of his current-day life was revealed, but on balance Robards' strong sense of scene, and the undeniable chemistry between Nick and Maggy drew me into the story and kept me turning the pages until their happily-ever-after.
