Lacy lives by a set of rules she created to protect herself and her family. She has had to escape and rebuild her life twice. Now as a single mother of three, she has created a private sanctuary in a small town where eccentricity is normal. She craves peace and quiet and the love and laughter of her children. It has taken her a long time to find herself, and to know herself. She knows she has trust issues, but when the first half of your life is built on lies and deception and the second is based on hiding from your past, trust does not come easily. She let Nick in once and he hurt her. She doesn't want to let him in again. She can’t afford to give second chances.
Nick thought he was in love with Lacy. When he tries to rekindle that love, he discovers that he never really knew her before. He is faced with walking away from a woman who keeps secrets or trying to strip away those skeletons from her past to discover the real woman beneath. What he finds is a vulnerability and fragility that seeks love and dominance, but it is bound with a strength and courage that goes beyond what he believed possible.
Suddenly, Lacy’s past is back. Lacy’s sanctuary and her privacy are invaded. The person she ran from is trying to force her back into the life she left behind. Does she have enough strength in her to fight that battle again or can she lean on Nick for some of his strength? Can the two of them stand united and fight the one person that could destroy her?
