Personal demons. There's no escape. Nowhere to hide. Ask Jack Sutcliffe. They're lessons he learned the hard way-along a road pitted with failures and disappointments. But he's fighting back. Desperately. Learning from his past to be a better man. For the woman he loves. For the son he never knew he had. And while those around him have forgiven him his sins, Jack discovers forgiving himself is the hardest step of all. Mother of three, businesswoman and widow Monica Burke has no time for love after a husband who betrayed and deserted her. Until the soul-deep hunger and desire she sees in Jack's eyes cracks an opening in the hard shell encasing her emotions. In Jack she sees the good man he's always wanted to be. But nothing worth having comes easy. Especially love. A shocking incident shatters Jack's fragile comeback, forcing him to make a choice that will devastate him to his very soul. Too late, Jack will learn the meaning of family. Too soon, Monica will learn the meaning of sacrifice.
