Rose had some painful things happen to her in the past and doesn't want to dwell on them. So she changes who she is and hides what she really is inside. She put it all in the past where it belonged. There was one person who wouldn't let her forget her past and that was Jake Lucas.
Jake wasn't going to let Rose get away from her past. He is still angry about it and wants someone to pay.
This was a little different than some of the books that the author wrote. I love one's that mixes it up sometimes and isn't afraid to do it.
I thought this was a pretty good book. I am not one for Harlequin, so taking on this book was new to me. It was okai, though, and it really got to the heart of the main character's soul. A little slow, but it is worth reading a short book like that. Very relaxing still.
Back cover reads: He Knew Her Dark Secrets... Tragedy had befallen Rosie when she was a vulnerable sixteen-year-old, and the worst thing about the experience was being caught by Jake Lucas, who clearly thought Rosie was a tramp. Since then Rosie had resolutely concentrated on building up a successful career and had allowed no one to guess that there was another woman behind the cheerful face she showed to the world. But Jake had entered her life again, and he wasn't about to let her forget the past. There seemed to be no way of avoiding the inevitable confrontation. Would it shatter Rosie's life all over again?
