She’s the cause of James North’s worst suffering, but Colette Fisher is also a victim of sorts. After years of oppression, she’s a prisoner of her own making, denying her innermost desires until she’s driven to her breaking point. It’s then, during her lowest low, when she meets the one man who could give her the strength to accept the woman she’s meant to be.
Michael Peterson enjoyed ten short years with the love of his life before tragedy took her from him too soon. Lonely and grieving, uncertain how to move forward, he meets Colette, a broken spirit also in need of comfort. Their smoldering attraction ignites the first sparks of love—fragile embers that Colette’s cruel family is determined to snuff out.
