For Millicent 'Missy' Armstrong, being ruined by the man of her dreams is nothing to wring her hands and bury her face in her hands about.

Then, in an abrupt reversal, James is back on her doorstep with the offer she'd yearned to receive...two weeks and one fiancée too late.
In the face of her unwavering refusal, James launches a war to win back her passion, her trust, and her love. A war as ruthless as it is seductive. With the wounds of her heartbreak still fresh and raw, can he convince her that far from the second choice, she has always been the only choice for him?
