Seven years ago, Matthew Deighton and Linda Petrie shared one night of searing passion. Then he left town, driven out by a scandal and narrow minds. Now he's back... and though branded a ne'er-do-well by the local busybodies, he confidently pursues Linda with all-male charm. Unable to resist the one man she's ever truly loved, Linda succumbs to the hot wave of desire rushing between them... Being in Matthew's arms once more is ecstasy, yet Linda's stung by local gossip and her parents' reproach. Matthew's determined not to lose her again... but can he make her stand up to the whole town's disapproval and tempt her to embrace his love forever?
