He expected to use her and bounce. After all, this wasn’t about love, but revenge. But the one he set out to hurt turned out to be the only one to ever touch his heart. Now he finds himself in a bit of a quandary, caught between a rock and a hard place.

That’s how long it took Damien to tell her the truth. After their first night together he couldn’t bring himself to dim the light in her eyes, but time was running out and he had no choice.

Will she forgive him for what he’s done, or are they destined to go through life knowing that the one they truly love got away?
