When Piers leaves Adrien in a financially compromising position, Chay offers to help on the condition that she move in and be his MISTRESS ON LOAN (3). Adrien is reluctant to agree—as a child she had idolized Chay until Piers came on the scene. But as they spend time together under his roof, they begin to realize how empty their relationship is without love. Is it possible that love has been there all along? Sara Craven packs a powerful emotional punch in her latest, with a tale of love lost and found.
