'Laura wasn't surprised when she saw Dirk Thornton with a glamorous brunette: her estranged husband's reputation as a womanizer was well-known to her. But she was shocked by her feelings for Dirk--they weren't dead at all and, what was more, he knew it!
Soon Dirk, a top Sydney criminal lawyer, was pursuing her relentlessly, but Laura couldn't forget that she'd been unable to conceive his child--which meant that there could be no future for them. Why then was she still tempted to accept Dirk's simply outrageous proposal?' (Publisher's blurb)
