Charlotte Winston had the perfect life. Doting husband. Wonderful son. On one fateful day, in a matter of seconds, everything changed. Heartbroken and alone, Charlotte is left to pick up the remaining pieces of her shattered existence. Only to find that some pieces were not what they seemed, which not only threatened any chance for true happiness...but also her life. David Lyons vowed to never let another woman under his skin. Bitter and resentful, he never takes a woman to bed twice. He learned that lesson the hard way. But everything he stood for dissolves when he meets a green eyed beauty from the city. Can two people, so beaten down by life, so broken, move on from the past? Can love restore their light after being blanketed in darkness for so long?
