Lynn Riggan thought she was on the road to a divorce, but suddenly finds herself a widow instead. She desperately wants to shield her brother-in-law from finding out about the kind of the man her husband really was. Brett was cold and manipulative, while Sawyer is everything good. Now alone together, they find comfort in each other's arms. Unprotected sex with both her husband before his death and Sawyer leave Lynn pregnant and wondering who the father of her child is, but there is no doubt who owns her heart. Emilie Rose's Forbidden Passion (3) looks at a woman who suffered emotional and verbal abuse at the hands of her husband. But the suddenness of Lynn's romance with Sawyer feels contrived and makes her seem dependent on having a man in her life.
