She swore no man would ever hurt her again - least of all this man.
When she was just a vulnerable seventeen-year-old, Beth Paterson gave a fellow student private tutoring. She didn't expect to fall deeply in love with him and have her life changed forever in a couple of short months. And she sure didn't expect him to vanish without even saying goodbye.
Now an accomplished businesswoman and doctor, Beth's ordered life is thrown into turmoil when Charlie Campbell comes back to town to help his family. He's a big star on the alternative rock scene these days - but he clearly remembers Beth and seems just as mad at her as she is at him. Embroiled in the community's struggle, Beth can't help but cross paths with Charlie any more than she can fight the resurgence of that wild attraction between them.
But Beth Paterson is no dummy - there's no way Charlie Campbell is ever getting back inside her heart.
