Rosalie Lafton has no desire to marry. She wants to enter a convent, but her father has other dreams and will do anything to get what he wants.

Jack Walters has spent three years in prison and grasps at Laftons offer. He wants Jack to marry his daughter Rosalie. This should be simple enough for someone as handsome as Jack, but he soon discovers its almost impossible.

Rosalies sister, Corinne, whose beauty rivals that of any Jack has ever seen, becomes a temptation. He must resist if he is to have what he desires.

Suddenly Rosalie is thrust into a situation she never expected with a man who tempts her to forget about her plans. But a crisis for Corinne will change all their lives and ask Rosalie to face the past and her own fears to find the redemption and love she deserves.

Overflowing with intense emotions, dramatic prose and three-dimensional characters this is a fascinating read.
