"Okay, well for how long?" she asks, withdrawing her hand from his, but he keeps quiet, "Forever?" There is horror in my voice as she asks and her heart breaks all over again. Karen Butler has been in love with William McQueen II before she even knew what love was, but they were two completely different people. Williams was much older, well known, and wilder who had all when it came to riches while Karen was the quiet, bullied girl with self acceptance issues.

Three years later he returns and tries to make amends for what he's done and slowly the love Karen thought was dead rekindled. But loving him becomes bigger than she ever thought with the many secrets he has. Will she be willing to love him even with his dark side or will she chose to protect herself?
