After an absence of six years, Mallory James, successful child psychologist, returns to the magical plantation house where her beloved uncle, Robert James, raised her after the death of her mother in a fatal car accident. Her brilliant academic father Nigel shocks everyone by handing over the raining of his only child to his brother because he can't cope with Mallory's stunning resemblance to his late wife; a woman not only he but his brother Robert had loved obsessively.
Mallory has reached the point in her life when she wants to confront her personal demons and effect closure with the man who had betrayed her on the eve of their wedding all those years before. Jason now has a wife and a child. His alpha twin, the highly hostile Jessica, hasn't gone anywhere. Jessica is still very much in the picture. And what of Blaine Forrester the only man capable of finding a way through the wall Mallory has built around herself?
In her search for peace and closure, Mallory only finds herself walking into danger.
A dark novel of love, aberration and atonement.
