If Rowan knew what happened on the day his wife died, he wouldn’t have asked Brielle to marry him. If Brielle had any sense, she wouldn’t have said yes. But their marriage is an arranged one, without hope of love. Rowan still pines for the woman who wasn’t what he thought she was, and Brielle is racked with guilt over her part in Rowan’s late wife’s death.
Brielle never saw herself falling in love with her chilly but generous husband. The life of financial security she envisioned has grown complicated, and she doesn’t know which way to turn. When she learns she’s pregnant, she thinks it’s time to stop living in a fantasy world, but leaving Rowan is harder than telling him the truth.
