Although still in mourning, beautiful young Dr. Sara Jane Cary consented to a second marriage - only to save a wounded young soldier of the Confederacy from certain death in a Yankee prison. But as the gentle blond giant of a man they called "Johnny" recovered, he had no memory of the marriage, or anything that had gone before. Until suddenly, the past came flooding back, and he became a bitter, cynical man who went off to war to try to forget a woman's treachery.
Driven now by greed and vengeance, Johnny is no longer the sweet man Sara married. It would be so easy to despise him...if only she weren't so powerfully attracted to this exciting stranger who had taught her the many pleasures of love.
