Somewhere deep inside, Jordin DuGrandpre has always been waiting for Ethan Holbrooke to come back to Charleston. He moved away as a teen, breaking all contact--and her young heart. Back then, she had no idea how difficult his family life was. Now she wants to heal the hurt behind his successful, exy exterior, but Ethan is an expert at keeping people out. Even the one woman he truly wants. Jordin's the only part of Ethan's old life that he hasn't rejected. He left and made a fortune on his own terms, yet still feels that he doesn't deserve her. Hiding his emotions from the gorgeous attorney is impossible one desire gives way to molten kisses. But he will have to face his past to make room for the healing passion she offers, and the love they've both been yearning for.
