It’s been seven years since Quinn Walker ended our engagement.
I’ve moved on, married his enemy, and started my own family.
Everything was perfect…until it wasn’t. My new life was a lie, and my husband turned out to be a fraud. The man that I married was now a wanted fugitive, and my ex-fiancé was the cop who was intent on making him pay.

I can accept that fate sent him back to me. Now, I need to assure my foolish heart that this means nothing.

Even after all those years apart, there's still plenty of chemistry between Quinn and Charlotte, but the love never truly died after the demise of their previous relationship.
